NEWS: BARNSLEY MUSIC FESTIVALS UPDATE

UTS

UNDERNEATH THE STARS FESTIVAL @ CANNON HALL FARM, CAWTHORNE FRI 24 – SUN 26 JULY 2015 Underneath The Stars took place for the first time last summer and was a successful collaboration between Pure Records and Cannon Hall Farm. On the website you will find full ticketing and camping details, as well as details of the line-up announced to date, which includes; MARY CHAPIN CARPENTER | KATE RUSBY | PHILIP SELWAY | EDDI READER | MOLOTOV JUKEBOX | MARTIN SIMPSON | BRUCE MOLSKY | ELECTRIC SWING CIRCUS | BOB FOX | HOPE AND SOCIAL | DAMIEN O’KANE | THE YOUNG ‘UNS | KESTON COBBLERS CLUBS | GALLEON BLAST (FEAT MARK RADCLIFFE) | A MOVING SOUND | CRY BABY CRY | MIRANDA SYKES AND REX PRESTON | SIOBHAN MILLER | FLATVILLE ACES | THE BIG EASY | THE DO RITE TRIO | JIM CAUSLEY | EDWINA HAYES | LUKE DANIELS | VERA VAN HEERINGEN | HARBOTTLE & JONAS | UKULELE UFF AND LONESOME DAVE | JASON TITLEY COLLECTIVE | TOBY BURTON You will also find useful information about the festival and campsite facilities, family activities and a look at last year’s festival. I attended two of the three days last year and it was fantastic. The site facilities, food and drink were second to none, and the best I have experienced at a Barnsley festival. But you’d expect nothing less for a festival aiming to be considered amongst the major small festivals, such as Bearded Theory, Beat Herder, Folk By The Oak and Cambridge Folk Festival. Underneath the Stars seems to have all of the right ingredients to be considered amongst those. Last year’s event took place on an already busy South Yorkshire festival weekend (Tramlines and Coalfields were on the same weekend) but didn’t stop over 8,000 music lovers from descending onto the fields around Cannon Hall farm to enjoy three days of great music.
