Here I chat with power-pop trio Dodgy who created some of the 90s biggest anthems with ‘Staying Out For The Summer’ and ‘Good Enough’. They reformed 4 years ago and are now back touring. One of their stops was Sheftival so have a listen and see what they had to say…
Here I chat to Lee Mullin, who’s in charge of all the Busking at this year’s two big festivals in Sheffield.
First up we’ve got the Busker’s Bus coming to Tramlines Festival for the third time. It takes you around the city with an array of musical talent on board to keep you entertained. You don’t know who might appear to perform a set.
Then in August at Sheftival we’ve got the Busker’s Barge for the first time ever. Again this will have musicians performing live but this time while travelling on water, down near Don Valley Stadium.
Have a listen and if you want to find out more follow @BandsOnTheMove on Twitter or search for The Busker’s Bus on Facebook.
