Starting in the venue’s Garrett Bar on Friday 21st January ,Pulp Disco’s blend of balearic, nu disco and classic house raises the curtain on proceedings. Two firm favourites among the North West’s gig-going community play the Garrett Theatre on Saturday when THE LOOSE KITES and CAMPFIRE SOCIAL open their 2022 accounts.
Before finishing with Sunday evening open mic session, Liverpool-via-Wales psych folks GINTIS open for By The Sea in the Storyhouse Theatre to close the festival.
