The four hour festival, which runs between 6pm and 10pm, is totally free and will also include music from Ramble Gamble, Alba Rosa, Cora Pearl and The 48K’s.

A spokesman for DN1 Live said: “Since the redevelopment of the area around the Market Square, we have had plans to bring back a free live music event for the people of Doncaster.

“We are really excited our very first DN1 Live features a headline act that have just graced stages all over Europe supporting Pink on her recent stadium tour. We hope you will come along and give Bang Bang Romeo the welcome home they deserve at their first gig back in their hometown.”

“The stage line up is packed with musical talent from across the region as we have tried to bring an eclectic mix of local and regional musicians so our event really is a celebration of all that is great in music in Doncaster and the surrounding area.”

The event will kick off a weekend of live music at venues across Doncaster town centre.
