The Barmines have only just returned from Leeds festival but they’re already heading out on a tour that will last the rest of the year, hitting cities all across the UK. There’s no time to stop for breath – these guys are gonna keep going until everyone is dancing to their indie rock tunes. Their …

The Wired at The Rocking Chair

The Wired are a blossoming little indie pop band from Sheffield who clearly have their sights set on the big time and following in the footsteps of the local greats who came before them like Pulp, the Arctic Monkeys and new kids on the block, the Sherlocks. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing the Wired …

Tramlines festival is Sheffield’s biggest musical event as every venue opens its doors to emerging bands and big headline acts, inviting Yorkshire out for a chaotic weekend of music, drink, and dancing. From fringe events to artists taking on the main stage, the entire city erupts in music, celebrating the best the industry has to …

Belgium’s Les Ardentes Festival is now over ten years old, so this year it added an extra day, making it a five-day extravaganza. I’ve been to every one, and my role for most of them as onstage announcer has given me fly-on-the-wall access to it and how it operates. Unlike in the U.K., where the …

Returning to Sheffield, they’ve moved to a larger venue …

Patrick Wolf

Not just in his hiatus from music, whilst he collates an anthology of poetry, notes and art to be published for his fans, but also on stage tonight at Nottingham’s Rescue Rooms. He is intently tuning and returning his guitar, methodically testing and retesting, searching intuitively …

Live At Leeds festival celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, taking over venues all across the city to showcase the best of British music and introducing you to your new favourite bands. This year was bigger than ever; every venue was full to capacity from the start as people of all ages came out to …
