A diverse mix of bands and artists are set to perform at an explosion of live music being held in the streets of the city centre this weekend.

Musicians who are set to perform at this year’s festival are given a chance  to show shoppers and passers-by what they can do at The Big Busk, a free event taking place across a number of outdoor stages from 11am and throughout the afternoon on Saturday, July 26.

As a preview of this year’s Worcester Music Festival at the end of August, the event, in its third year and run in conjunction with Worcester Business Improvement District (BID), will be showcasing dozens of acts from the county, including Granny’s Attic, one of the final nomineees for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards.

The three outdoor stages can be found outside the Guildhall on the High Street, the Shambles, and outside Boston Tea Party in Angel Place.

Ant Robbins, chairman of Worcester Music Festival, which will see around 240 acts from the county and beyond take more than 25 venues across the city by storm from August 29 – 31, said The Big Busk was set to be a wonderful day of free, live music.

“The idea behind the event is to help businesses thrive by driving footfall into the city through first class entertainment from local talent, while it is also a drum roll for our free festival of live, original music in August, which is growing year on year”.
