Global Music Stage

DJ Trev has been a staple of the Harrogate club scene for many years, and knows perhaps better than anyone how to get the Harrogate party started. Despite DJ-ing widely across the UK, DJ Trev has always been a big supporter of local events, having previously being involved with Harrogate International Festivals both for the Fringe Crawl Day and Jimmy’s Night.
Leeds West Indian Carnival bring the perfect blend of jaw-dropping costumes, infectious tropical rhythms, Caribbean Culture and entertainment for everyone.
Yorkshire’s hottest New Orlean’s inspired brass band from Leeds, playing a unique fusion of popular and jazz music across the UK and Europe.
Described in the music press as ground-breaking, Ajay’s soulful, stirring songs are the product of a crossfire hurricane of influences, drawing equally from the Mississippi Delta that sired the Blues and the Varanasi Ghats where prayers, birth-rites and coming-of-age ceremonies are performed beside the Ganges.
Buffo’s Wake are a gypsy punk band of lunatics with a taste for the macabre. Festival veterans, regularly appearing at some of the UK’s biggest festivals, including Glastonbury, Bestival, Secret Garden Party, and Boomtown, as well as live performances on BBC Introducing, Buffo’s Wake will grab you, and leave you dancing.
Fernando Brazil brings the best Latin Party of North Yorkshire with plenty Salsa, Bachata, Kizomba, Reggaeton, Merengue and Brazilian moves.

Walkabout Acts

Roo'dGiant kangaroos on amazing bouncing stilts? That’s Roo’d! Jumping a metre off the ground and 2 metres in a bound, they’re a phenomenal sight with their cheeky blend of outback macho and inner city punk savvy — always Roo’d but never offensive.
