Sounds fantastic

Free festival fun and gigs for £10 & under

See 26 bands for free – that’s even more than last year.

This includes the 11 Jazz North northern line showcase gigs. Not surprisingly, nearly all the advance tickets for the showcase have now been snapped up – a few more per gig will be available On the Door (1st-come-1st-served), so get there early folks! You don’t need advance tickets at all for the two northern line gigs at Central Library (Archipelago and Early Nite) – just turn up and enjoy!
