Stellar Line-up Unveiled For York's Little Festival Of Live Music
Grinny Grandad
Having received over 500 applications from musical acts from across the UK eager to play at this year's York's Little Festival of Live Music, the team behind the annual event are delighted to be unveiling the line-up for this year's 28 hour live music festival, which will take place on Parliament Street, York from Friday 22 - Saturday 30 September (excluding 25 and 26 September).

Boss Caine
The festival, which was recently awarded with the title York's Outstanding New Festival of the Year, will be bringing some of the finest and new talent together to offer audiences an exciting musical experience. Ellen Cole the Curator of the festival says:

"Our music festival seems to get bigger each year and I am incredibly honoured to have the line-up we have this year. Our festival is family-friendly, has disabled access and will be located in a large marquee on Parliament Street.

"Our September festival always takes place alongside the York Food and Drink Festival, so there will also be plenty of delicious food and drink available. This year, we have complied a number of themed nights, so that our audiences know what to expect musically each night, from Folk to Pop to Country, we will have something for everyone to enjoy and the best part of York's Little Festival of Live Music is that entry is free!"

Ellen goes on to say: "the line-up is phenomenal this year and we cannot wait to see what our audiences think. This year's 28 hour event should not be missed, on Saturday 23 September for example we have the amazing Grinny Grandad performing at the festival. The collective rarely play in York these days, so it is going to be such a treat for our audience."

Entry into the festival is free of charge and everyone is welcome. Throughout the event, York's Little Festival of Live Music will be fundraising for York Mind, a local charity which helps local people with mental ill-health. Any donations, however big or small, will be greatly appreciated.

York's Little Festival of Live Music will take place from Friday 22 - Saturday 30 September (excluding 25 and 26 September) and the music will take place each evening from 5pm-9pm.
