THE LINE-UP for this year’s Worcester Music Festival is starting to take shape.
Organised entirely by volunteers this year’s event in the heart of the city centre runs from September 15-17.
And it’s already promising to be another brilliant get together with a mouthwatering selection of bands, including post-punk female-fronted outfit Bridget, Bristolian hard rockers The St Pierre Snake Invasion, Mt. Yonder, Jesse River, Dylan Merry who delivers punk-folk stompers, Jess Silk who is an ever popular face on the festival circuit, Exit Child and even City Councillor Tor Pingree will be performing.
The not-for-profit festival has been running since 2008 and so far it has raised tens of thousands of pounds for different causes, and this year, the festival will be raising money and awareness for The Myriad Centre, a local cause which provides specialist care for young people with serious disabilities.
Over the years it has seen hundreds of acts from near and far flock to the city to perform original music in dozens of venues across the city, and with workshops for all ages and live performances it promises something for everyone.
As Redditch son Nigel Clark from Dodgy said: “This is a great festival with an amazing number of artists giving up their time for free.
“It’s a chance to spend the weekend exploring a wide range of music while taking in the many splendours of the city.”
The full line-up can be found at www.worcestermusicfestival.co.uk, and more names continue to be added to the bill each week.
Keep up to date with the announcements on Facebook (@worcestermusicfestival) and Twitter (@worcsmusicfest).
The festival is also looking for more volunteers to join the team over the festival weekend.
There are a variety of ways people get involved, with roles including venue stewards, charity collectors, sound engineers, photographers and stage managers.
It’s a great way to give back to the local community while enjoying plenty of incredible live music.

The Myriad Centre is a lifeline for families in Worcestershire, providing specialist care for young people with serious disabilities and an emotional lifeline for their families.
Since 2007, the centre has been providing respite care, bringing joy to the lives of young people while offering peace of mind to family members as they take time out from the enormous responsibility of being a full-time carer.
