Live In Barnsley - Where To Go

Friday June 21 2013

LIVE in Barnsley LIVE in Barnsley

THE inaugural LIVE in Barnsley music festival is nearly here. Here's your WAB Guide on where to go. It all starts in 90 minutes!

The promo has been done, the merchandise has been readied and Saturday's extravaganza is set to start at 12pm.

Starting out as a simple idea when discussing Sheffield's Tramlines festival, LIVE in Barnsley's organisers then pitched the idea to a landlord meeting - and 11 of them came forward to offer their venue.

"You can really feel the build up of expectation," said Dave Pearsall, 49, one of the organisers behind the free festival. "I like all of the acts but The Exhibition did it for me. I went to see them at the Polish Club not long back and their song 'Roma' should be in the charts.

"Mynas are also great. The way they bring in the violin really gives them a whole new dimension."

There are 99 bands on show at 11 venues in the town. Here's your WAB Guide on where your favourite acts are playing and what time they're there.
