Lancaster BID are proud to present:

'Lancaster Sounds of Summer', a two day musical extravaganza, centering on the plinth in the newly refurbished Market Square. With an eclectic mix of music ranging from Kirkby Lonsdale Brass Band, through the soothingly classical Players from Lancaster's Haffner Orchestra, to the upbeat sounds of Jeramiah Ferrari, a four piece reggae-rock group from Manchester; this is shaping up to be an event to remember.

It will enhance the increased footfall of the Bank Holiday, draw shoppers into the heart of the BID area, and encourage them to linger throughout the day and into the evening.

Sunday 24 August 


2pm - 3pm Kirkby Lonsdale Brass Band - Brass

One of the oldest bands in the country starting in 1821 when the band played for the coronation celebrations of King George IV. The band has travelled to Europe and hosts exchanges with European brass bands as well as running a NW Band Competition since 1988. One of the best traditional acts around.


 3:30pm - 4:30pm Hairpiece Suite - Indie Rock (youth act)

Local youth indie rock group that have established a growing following as one of Lancaster's top youth acts and a good opener for Jeremiah Ferrari.





5pm - 6pm Jeramiah Ferrari - Reggae

From Manchester, simply the most ballistic reggae band ever. A ground-breaking rejuvenation of the genre.

8pm - 9:30pm Get Carter / Convulsions - Riff based manic retro

Lancaster based high energy retro mods together on one stage at the same time. Get Carter are led by Selector founding member and Hammond virtuoso James Mackie.



10pm - 11:30pm Templebys - Soul / Deep funk

Preston based soul funk band the Templebys are Lancaster Music Festival favourites with a combination of deep funk and hot-grit soul topped off with the searing vocals of Kim Hollin.

2pm - 3pm Players from Lancaster's Haffner Orchestra - Classical

Award winning Lancaster Haffner Orchestra are providing Cello trio, string quartet and Baroque trio with oboe,  harpsichord (keyboard) and cello continuo for a very relaxing start to Monday's program. 

3pm - 4pm Franco & The Dreadnought - Indescribable

Guitar virtuoso John Blaylock from Manchester takes the acoustic guitar to places it's never been to before with blurring finger dexterity that would shame most Flamenco players.

Cumbria based world music and reggae act that have been appearing at many NW festivals and always a favourite with their fun loving upbeat virtuosity.
