Malton’s boutique summer music festival will return this summer, bringing harmonies and melodies once again to Yorkshire’s Food Capital.
It will be back on on Saturday 30 July – and today the headline act was revealed this morning, exclusively to Ben and Laura on the YorkMix Radio breakfast show.
Headlining this year’s line-up is Indie rock band The Feeling!
Tickets are on sale – and YorkMix readers and listeners can get 10% off right now using the code YORKMIX10 – go to the website.
The chart-toppers will to the stage to perform fan favourites such as Fill My Little World and Never Be Lonely, as well as music from their brand-new album, Loss. Hope. Love, which is due for release in May 2022.
The band has been on a hiatus since 2016 but following on from the success of his hit musical Everyone’s Talking About Jamie in the West End, frontman Dan Gillespie Sells found himself inspired to write again for the quintet during lockdown in 2020.
Meadowfest will be one of the band’s first appearances performing their new work.
Also appearing on the Main Stage this July is party band Huge and Hyde Family Jam – both returning to the event after appearing at the 2021 Meadowfest. There will also be support from Alistair Griffin and New York Brass Band, with the rest of the line-up due to be announced later this year.
Fun for foodies and families
As well as the Main Stage, the Hay Bale Stage will host headliners Flat Cap Carnival, also returning from the 2021 event.
Graeme Hargreaves and Gary Stewart will once again perform to the crowds at the riverside meadows, with more support from George Rowell, Maggie Wakeling, Nick Rooke, Simon Snaize and many more.
Befitting Yorkshire’s food capital, Meadowfest boasts delectable street food stalls, bars, family entertainment, and much more. The event is easily accessible on foot and is only a few minutes’ walk from Malton train station, but festival parking is also free for those who travel by car.
Set in the beautiful riverside meadows just behind The Talbot in Malton, the site is a natural amphitheatre for perfect acoustics.
Tom Naylor-Leyland, Director of Visit Malton, said:

Meadowfest is one of our most-loved events each year, boasting wonderful music, a fantastic party atmosphere, delicious food and drink and unmissable entertainment for everyone to enjoy. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back for our biggest year yet!
