The Lightning Seeds will join Cast and From the Jam
The Lightning Seeds have been announced as the final headliner for June’s Mosborough Music Festival, which for the first time will be held at Don Valley Bowl, Sheffield.
The band will be joined by Brit-poppers Cast and From the Jam at the festival, which will take place on 2 – 3 June. Also on the bill are: The Dualers, who will belt out their infectious SKA/Reggae set, Essex based Missing Andy plus John Reilly and Boy on a Dolphin.
Sheffield’s best upcoming bands also feature on the line-up, including The SSS, Sundance, The Velcro Teddy Bears, The Wired, Spears, Sweet Little Machine and Milane.
From Leeds, Oddity Road and Benson will play, and from Doncaster Ginger Tom and Apollo Junction. The bill also includes tribute bands Antartic Monkeys and Happy Mondaze.
On the Friday night, Sheffield’s own music legends Milburn will kick off the festival alongside Reverend and the Makers and Manchester’s post-punk band Cabbage.
The festival, which is now in its seventh year, is to be held at Don Valley Bowl for the first time, having outgrown the original site in Mosborough.
Steve Cowens, festival organiser, said: “As a local lad I’m proud of what we have done in Mosborough and brought so many household names in music to the village but I suppose all good things come to an end.
“I’m a proud Sheffield lad and I really wanted to keep the festival in Sheffield, plus I’d still be dealing with the local authorities who I have to say have been brilliant in their support and advise. So we decided that Don Valley Bowl was to be our new home, it has great transport links, it’s a great venue and it’s also two minutes from the M1 and surrounded by good hotels, it’s perfect really.”
