LIFE top line-up of more than 200 bands at Humber Street Sesh, the UK's biggest festival of rising
stars and unsigned talent
The line-up for the country’s biggest festival for unsigned and emerging musical talent was announced in style today (Friday, May 12) with a special performance on a rooftop in Hull.
The politically charged punk noisemakers and "thick-skinned DIY" band LIFE, fresh from playing SXSW and with a new album about to drop, were also announced as the headliner for Humber Street Sesh, which takes place on August 5 when crowds of 30,000 are expected to descend on Hull Marina.
Three artists included in the 200-strong line-up gave a taste of what can be expected with performances on top of Humber Street Gallery this afternoon.
The poetic singer-songwriter Jack Conman, hard hitting duo Chambers and indie quartet Fronteers braved the dizzy heights of Humber Street Gallery’s rooftop and performed overlooking streets which will be filled with thousands of festivalgoers this summer.
Humber Street Sesh is in its sixth year after growing from a weekly music night in Hull to one of the country’s most unique and exciting festivals.
Such is its growing reputation, Humber Street Sesh was shortlisted in the Best Medium Sized Festival and the Best Metropolitan Festival categories at the high-profile UK Festival Awards last year.
The man responsible for this spectacular evolution is Sesh founder Mak Page.
Mak said: “What’s been achieved off the back of a long-standing original live music night is quite incredible.
“In the last five years, we’ve captivated the heart and soul of the city, provided a powerful platform for the best emerging bands and acts from the region and helped create a sense of cultural wellbeing in Hull.
“This year, in line with Hull 2017, we have invited some special friends to join us as we showcase the brilliance of our City of Culture. This is our year in the spotlight, and Humber Street Sesh will truly shine this August.”
