This Saturday! A music event in Marlborough for young people starring local musicians
This will be a great opportunity to support and enjoy local music acts such as Dirty Thrills (headliner), George Wilding, Rufus Mackay, Rohan Ball, Sam Evans Band, All Ears Avow and SN Dubstation.
All of these acts will be featured on the main stage, with a special dance performance courtesy of M.A.D. - the Marlborough Academy of Dance and Drama.
With a line up this varied you can be sure to enjoy your favourite genre as well as discover an unexpected new sound - something that should not be missed.
All are must see - and hear - acts, however ones to watch out for include George Wilding and Swindon's SN Dubstation. George Wilding is a young self-taught singer song writer who has previously supported acts like Newton Faulkner and The Levellers. He creates a chilled and subtle folk sound that clearly showcases his raw talent.
On the other hand SN Dubstation are an eight piece band that effortlessly merge Reggae, Ska and Dub sounds to create infectious bass lines that you can dance to.
The headliners, Dirty Thrills are an exciting “bluesy-rock” band that will remind you of The Black Keys and Queens of the Stone Age. They have had glowing reviews mentioned in magazines such as “Classic Rock Magazine” and “Blues Magazine”. Featuring clever guitar riffs and catchy vocals, this band will make you move.
Not only will this festival feature musical entertainment, but there will be a variety of other activities on offer - including drumming, circus skills, cake decorating and art workshops as well as hockey and golf sessions. UV face painting could liven things up, as will several fair rides including giant spinning teacups and a hilarious rodeo bull ride.
The Marlborough Youth Music Event tickets are £5 each with a £3 food voucher included in the price. These tickets are available now from the St John's Library, the Marlborough Library and Sound Knowledge. And tickets can be purchased on the day.
With the 2016 festival season coming to an end, this is a chance to extend the summer by coming to support an amazing local cause and have a great time in the process.
