May Day Festival of Solidarity, the event started last year by Tony Wright and meself to bring together voices from music, poetry and politics to celebrate International Worker’s Day returns over the weekend of April 29/30 and we’d dearly love you to be there.
As you can see from the poster, we have some amazing acts, and anyone who tunes in regularly to The Joe Solo Show will be familiar with the likes of The Men They Couldn’t Hang, Steve Mason, Thee Faction, Efa Supertramp, Lily Gaskell, Blyth Power, Interrobang, Lilith Ai and Robb Johnson even if you weren’t already! The venue is The Old School House in Barnsley and the alternating twin stage set-up from last year returns meaning there’s non-stop music from start to finish; and with a capacity of only 200 it is a chance to get properly up close and personal with some genuine legends of the live music.
We will have speeches from unions and campaigning groups too with more on that to be announced soon.
Tickets are £25 for a full weekend pass and £15 for a single day, an absolute bargain in comparison to the farm-em-in-farm-em-out summer festivals, and the vibe alone will be worth the entrance fee.
