Polly Mackey & the Pleasure Principle have been announced as headliners at The Red Festival which takes place at Liverpool’s Barfly venue on 26th July.

The Red Festival is the biggest UK unsigned event, showcasing over 500 bands per quarter at the UK’s best ‘local’ venues. The Red Festival works on an ethos of giving all states of band a chance to play desirable venues. The festival spans across many major cities in the UK and aims to fill several stages at once, hopefully running simultaneously.

The began in early 2005 when North-west based Promotions company Redland created the very first Red Festival in Liverpool Barfly. The idea behind the festival mirrored from larger festivals. Since 2005 Redland has booked more than 13,000 bands in just under 20 cities. The Liverpool leg this year has 48 of the North West’s top bands performing on 3 stages.

The festival kicks off with the first band onstage at midday and ends 47 bands later with Polly and the boys taking to the stage around 10.15pm.

Tickets (covering all 48 bands’ performances) are available from New Direction Music at £5 (info@newdirectionmusic.com)
