If you want a rocking weekend, you’ve come to the right place. York has not one but two music festivals to see in the Bank Holiday.
Fulford Arms, Fulford Road, York
Sun May 24 @ Noon-10pm
On Sunday (May 24) it’s a very special MOR Music fest.
Music shop MOR Music was established in 1985 – so to celebrate its 30th anniversary they’re holding an all-day music festival at The Fulford Arms with free entry.
Altogether 11 bands will be playing throughout the day with The Bronze kicking off the proceedings at noon, followed by a new band each hour until the Hellbound Hearts headline set starting at 10pm.
Lynne O’Dea of MOR Music said:
|1pm||The Filthy Piece|
|2pm||Van Der Neer|
|8pm||The Rodeo Falls|
|9pm||Us Amongst The Rest||10pm||Hellbound Hearts|
Fake it real good
Sat May 23 @ 12.30pm-11pm
Before that, between 12.30pm and 11pm on Saturday (May 23), some of the greatest tribute acts around will assemble on the Knavesmire.
The York Fake Festival will host the Four Fighters, Antarctic Monkeys and New2. And there are local bands like A Joker’s Rage also playing the Fake Festivals marquee.
There’s an Entertainment Zone for kids, food traders and a licensed bar. Tickets cost between £15 and £25 on the door.
