FESTIVAL NEWS: LIVE in Barnsley 2016 Line-up Announcement No.7


The following bands will be appearing at Live In Barnsley 2016:

The Black Lagoons from York
Hot young band The Black Lagoons blend a mix of indie rock and darker riffs, somewhat reminiscent of more recent Arctic Monkeys and Last Shadow Puppets offerings.

Broken from Barnsley
Metallers Broken have two Download Festival appearances under their belt and will be hitting Warehouse 23 in Wakefield on route to this year’s Live in Barnsley.

Mark Jackson’s CWOT from Barnsley
Mark Jackson’s ‘Criminal Waste Of Talent’ will be making their return after a recent sabbatical. An Alternative Barnsley favourite, Mark has drawn comparison’s with John Cooper Clarke with his humorous, punk poetry-esque musings and he’ll be bringing his band with him to Barnsley’s most loved festival.

Taxi For Bob from Barnsley
Pop-punk trio Taxi For Bob will be tantalising the Live In Barnsley crowd again this year hot on the heels of their recent EP release ‘Joke About It’.

Servers from Barnsley
Servers have been described by Rock Sound Magazine as “A white hot slab of incandescent fury” and by Metal Hammer UK as “Mastodon meets Queens brand of intelligent riffs”. You can catch them playing alongside Awooga and Dead Blonde Stars at West St Live on Sunday 15th May in the run up to LIB 2016.

One Under from Scunthorpe
Scunthorpe based hard rock/metal band One Under were formed from the ashes of Illflower in 2012. They’ll be bringing some heavy stoner rock riffs with them to Barnsley on June 18th.

Light Brigade from Arundel, West Sussex
Light Brigade’s latest single ‘Amber’ was featured on BBC Introducing, mixing synth lines with rhythmic guitar.

Jess Huxham from Bradford
Pop/folk artist Jess Huxham recently won best solo artist at the CORadio Awards and has since formed the Ørmstons. Be sure to catch her solo act at Live In Barnsley this year.

Neon Dolls from Leeds
Neon Dolls are an indie four-piece as good as any around at the moment. They’ve been putting the finishing touches on a new album so don’t be surprised if they treat the crowd to some new tunes this summer.

Del Scott Miller from Barnsley
When Del Scott Miller isn’t writing and performing with his band Mynas, he moonlights as a solo acoustic artist. One such occasion of moonlighting will occur on June 18th when he plays Live In Barnsley, by which time he’s aiming to have a new album out.

Fading Sunlight from Bradford
Fading Sunlight are a promising young alternative/pop-rock band on the up. They’ll be ones to watch this summer.
