NINE hours of live music will be staged in the heart of Heckmondwike tomorrow.
The festival in Green Park will be opened by music students from the town’s Grammar School followed by Batley singer Jade Helliwell.
After that, the Crown of Lights music festival will continue with a showcase of the best musical talent that Yorkshire has to offer.
Fifteen bands and acoustic acts are lined up for tomorrow’s events which is the first of two big music days in Heckmondwike this summer.
The second will again be in Green Park but on August 30, the Bank Holiday weekend.
Britrocks kick off tomorrow’s music with blues singer and guitarist James O’Hara, vocalist, keyboards and singer P D Long and solo acoustic artist DBoy also programmed.
I. E, the four piece indie outfit from Halifax, will play alongside Northern Beats, Eight Stories High who are from Leeds and solo artist John Dorr.
And there will doubtless be an extra cheer for Cleckheaton’s award-winning band The Blister Factory.
The New Charnwood is on standby in case of bad weather and the Charnwood will also host the evening session between 9.30pm and midnight.
The music in the park begins at noon and is free.
