The Walk of Art Festival 2016 will take place in Horsforth, Leeds on the weekend of Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd July.
Walk of Art festival is an inclusive, community 'DIY' arts festival and features a musical line-up of 21 acts. As well as music, the Walk of Art festival brings together a beautiful collage of inclusive arts, with painters, ceramists, craft-makers and more all sharing their creativity through a map of open houses and local community venues.
This is the festival's second year. Music was an important part of the inaugural festival, and will be an even bigger part of this year's event. An exciting and diverse line-up of 21 acts has been confirmed, including vocal choirs, rock 'n' roll bands, and everything in between. Venues are equally diverse, with churches and gardens alike destined to be drenched in wonderful sounds.
In keeping with the theme of the festival, the musical line-up is in the style of a 'travelling gig', meaning people can navigate the map via the music if they wish, or just dip in and out at their heart's content.
The music line up is The Witness // Peachy DJ and Silent Noize // Pyramid of Arts // David Grainger // Brendan Croker // Quodlibot // Jemima Bryan // Gary Kaye // West Yorkshire Classical Guitar Society // Dave Prater // The Toy Trains // Wharfe Brass // Jake Keating // The Last Minute // African Passport // The Leeds Waits // Lisa Marie Glover // The Three Amigos // Mr CD Wallum // Hailbails // All for One Choir.
Also, look out for buskers popping up where you least expect it.
