Garforth Arts Festival
Leeds, United Kingdom - England
The Playground Party 2014 is fast approaching, featuring a whole day of fantastic live music, dance, entertainment & fun for all the family. It is the culmination of the two-week long Garforth Arts Festival which is now firmly established as a part of the annual cultural calendar in the city of Leeds.
This year sees our biggest line-up ever. Headlining will be the folk rockers LEVELLERS, with support from THE WONDER STUFF and legendary ska band THE SKATALITES who are celebrating their 50th Anniversary. Also on the bill is the Malian guitarist VIEUX FARKA TOURÉ who has been referred to “the Hendrix of the Sahara”. Our line-up continues with Leeds favourites Ellen and The Escapades and the Garforth Jazz Rock Band with more artists to be announced.
Leeds promoters The Hee Haw Sessions will be running our second stage featuring folk, roots and acoustic music from a wide range of artists from Leeds and across the UK.
Our indoor 300-seater auditorium will host Rock School UK where new bands created through an educational project with local primary schools will be performing alongside other children from across the city.
Rock School UK will also be providing workshops where festival-goers can form a band, rock out and perform a gig on the day. There will also be visual arts and singing workshops, so there will be loads to do for kids and parents alike.
Magic, face painting, juggling, stilt walking and a whole host of other vibrant and exciting activities will be going on throughout the day.
All in all, the Playground Party is a cultural extravaganza not to be missed, and at only £25 for a full day of entertainment, it might just be the best value festival day in the entire UK!
