The first artists have been announced and it’s an eclectic line up featuring Best Fit faves Loyle Carner, Mabel and Emily Burns, as well as newer names like Heavy Lungs and Molly Rainford, tipped for big things in the next twelve months.

The festival has moved around a bit in the last few years, but now back firmly in the vibrant city centre it’s celebrating its 12th year as one of the UK’s defining multi-venue festivals. Running alongside a conference that boasts panels and workshops, and in a city that’s not known for its quiet nights in, this is the best way to kick off festival season.

The full lineup is released in January 2019 and the festival runs from 3-5 May with tickets priced £43.45 for weekend / £27 day wristbands - but if you want to be there for free, enter our competition!
