DML-Website-Banner-640x330

Well it’s that time of year again folks, the bank holiday is nearly upon and one of the greatest free music festivals is about to take place in the centre of Darwen Lancashire and it’s surrounding pubs and clubs.

With social media awash with comments, plugs and statuses about it, we thought we’d put together our list of artists/bands to see. Sorry if it’s a little bit biased towards moofest artists but we need the publicity as well…

I think you can say without a shadow of doubt that there are some fabulous acts playing over the weekend, full credit to the likes of The Crown, Number 39, and Level One Live, who along with Sunbird Records are making the most of the original talent on offer locally whilst mixing it up with some great stuff from a litre further afield.

Best of luck to all the Darwen Live organisers, pubs, clubs, artists and bands taking part. Have a blast everyone and we’ll see you on the other side.
