Advance ticket sales going well for music festival in Barnsley

Have your say

Organisers of a three day music festival in Barnsley have sold nearly 1,400 weekend tickets so far - with just under 100 days still to go.

The Underneath the Stars Festival is to be held at Cannon Hall Farm in Barnsley between July 24 and 26.

Organisers have increased camping and parking capacity to meet demand and are appealing for more volunteers to get involved.

The festival aims to showcase an eclectic mix of music including folk, swing, jazz, rock and roll, blues and world music.

There will also be arts, crafts and cultural activities as well as artisan food from local suppliers.

Festival director Emma Holling said: “Advance ticket sales have been so good that we have sold three times as many tickets as the same time last year. And we are expecting more sales in the coming weeks as people plan their summer.”
