SOME of the artists set to play at Worcester Music Festival have been revealed. 

Festival organisers have started to reveal the line-up of artists who will be playing this year's event in the city centre from Friday, September 15 to Sunday, September 17.

The festival has been running since 2008 and is organised by volunteers.

Over the past few years, acts have travelled from near and far to the city to perform original music in dozens of venues across the city centre.

There will be live performances in over 20 venues in Worcester city centre.

Visitors will also be able to take part in workshops and live performances around Worcester city centre.

This year, the festival welcomes multiple genres and ages.

Artists confirmed to play at the event so far are post-punk female-fronted outfit Bridget, Bristolian hard rockers The St Pierre Snake Invasion, and Mt. Yonder who have recently donned the stage of this year’s Arctangent Festival.

Jesse River Dylan Merry who delivers punk-folk stompers and Jess Silk who is a welcome face on the festival circuit.

Exit Child will be performing fresh off the back of their UK tour, and even City Councillor Tor Pingree will be performing.

The festival is fast approaching, and excitement is certainly building because, as Nigel Clark from Dodgy says: "This is a great festival with an amazing number of artists giving up their time for free.

"It’s a chance to spend the weekend exploring a wide range of music while taking in the many splendours of the city."

Thousands of pounds have been raised for different causes by this festival and this year, money is being raised for The Myriad Centre.

This charity provides specialist care for young people with serious disabilities.

Cheryl Johnson, fundraising development manager at The Myriad Centre, said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as Worcester Music Festival’s charity for 2023.

"We are a small local charity, which has a big, positive impact on people with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) and their families and carers.

"We are here to help the young people we support make the most of every day through a wide range of fun, fulfilling activities, including music and art therapy.
