Hull Trinity Festival is bringing the music vibes back to Zebedees Yard over the weekend of 24 and 25 September with Hull’s incredible homegrown talent taking center stage alongside nationally known headliners at the free festival.
The festival’s main stage in Zebedee’s Yard, Hull city centre, is hosting everything from the mellow sounds of Yasmin Coe, to ska punks Counting Coins as well as the power pop/indie rock sounds of The Hoosiers.
After an incredible summer touring up and down the country, releasing their recent EP We Used To Be In Love and performing secret sets at Reading and Leeds festival, Liverpool’s Clean Cut Kid will be headlining the main stage on Saturday – a definite for fans of HAIM. Also, you couldn’t ask for a better cover of Jamie XX’s loud places (available on free download if you join their mailing list).
After selling over a million records through Sony with tracks such as Goodbye Mr A, Choices and Worried About Ray, The Hoosiers will take on the main stage on Sunday. The Hoosiers are one band who have managed to escape pressures fuelled by the need to exceed expectations from past releases. Although there was a time when the boys went their separate ways due to tension, creativity and arguments, their drive and determination have led them to relive all the good times they had back in those early days.
Ray’s still battling on though … he’ll get there.
Hull Trinity Festival is supported by Hull Business Improvement District (HullBID) and works with Warren Records, Trinity House Charity and sponsors Oscars Bar, to remain rooted in the city’s tightly knitted arts community, helping spread the “Hull sound” to a wider audience.
As for all that Hull talent, there’s a pretty solid line-up with the likes of Saturday co-headliners The Black Delta Movement, Sunday co-headliners Counting Coins, dark soul garage Fire (The Unstoppable Force), indie lads Young Jack, sister doom duo Chambers, as well as Dantevilles, Avalanche Party, The Froot ’67, Streaming Lights, Yasmin Coe, Waste of Paint, El Whaeko, The New Republic and a heap more.
With plenty more local acts to be announced, the family-friendly Hull Trinity Fest is looking to be a top weekend – and for a free two-day festival, you’ll be bagging yourself a sweet deal.
Hull Trinity Festival takes place on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 September 2016 in Zebedee’s Yard, Hull city centre.
