Belying its title, York’s Little Festival Of Live Music will return in 2015, bigger than ever.
The community music festival enters its third year with a seven-day residency on Parliament Street and a selection from nearly 400 musicians keen to play.
And it announced the name of its chosen charity – York Mind.
Ellen Cole, director of York’s Little Festival of Live Music, said they were thrilled to team up with the independent mental health charity.
Ellen has no shortage of talent queuing up to take part in the festival. She said:
We are still in the process of going through the applications, but will announce the final line-up later in July.
It will be a tough choice, as they need only 28 acts to fill the available slots.
York’s Little Festival of Live Music was created with only three weeks’ notice for the York Food and Drink Festival in 2013.
Last year it doubled in scale to six nights and is now established as a musical highlight of the calendar.
The festival offers a platform for established and upcoming talent to showcase their work.
Musicians from all over the country, including London, Manchester and Birmingham, have been attracted to play on its stage alongside local talent.
With its inclusive ethos the festival aims to offer first time gig-goers, families and music lovers alike a great musical experience for a small charitable donation.
