Next weekend, West Yorkshire has another bank holiday full to the brim with music and art. Threadfest in Bradford takes place over 9 venues in the city, from The New Bradford Playhouse, to the Tavern in the Town.

Artists confirmed for the festival include, Leeds-based Black Sabbath fused rockers Black Moth (who will be fresh faced from their tour with Uncle Acid and The Deadbeats), Glasgow folk rock from Two Wings, as well as Yorkshire favourite Allusondrugs and Manchester's Cleft. They will all join acts including Japan's Nissenenmodai, Canada's Nadja and Bradford's Monty Casino for a packed weekend full of free independent and underground music.

The free cross city festival of independent music and art has been given a boost to its arts strand in the form of a grant from Arts Council England and support from Bradford Council. Art In Unusual Spaces, a Community Interest Company who curate and commission art in the public realm, have a programme of activity focused in the city's Oastler Market.
