HUNDREDS of tickets have gone on sale for a festival that's taking Barnsley by storm.

The Underneath The Stars music festival at Cannon Hall Farm was held for the first time last year and is organised by Kate Rusby and her family.

The event - over the weekend July 24 to 26 - will showcase a mix of music including folk, swing, jazz, rock and roll, blues and world music.

Kate will headline on the Sunday, with Saturday’s line-up topped by US song-writing legend Mary Chapin Carpenter and Eddi Reader, formerly of Fairground Attraction; and Friday’s programme including Galleon Blast featuring BBC radio personality Mark Radcliffe.
