The 16th Musicport Festival returns to Whitby, North Yorkshire this October
Acts from around the globe will converge at Whitby Pavilion in October for three days of musical festivity. Now in its 16th year, the Musicport returns from October 16-18, with a host of reputable musicians, who will bring five stages to life.
Headlining the Friday night slot is Terry Hall (lead vocalist of The Specials) with a DJ set, before the London-based world fusion group Transglobal Underground (pictured above) take the Saturday headline slot and acclaimed musician Eliza Carthy and her Wayward Band round off the weekend on Sunday.
Other performers include the Catalonian salsa orchestra Tromboranga, the British folk singer Emily Portman, fiery Finnish fiddle group Frigg, folk duo O’Hooley & Tidow, Tibetan singer Ngawang Lodup, singer-songwriter Paul Armfield and many more. There will also be the Yorkshire Gig Guide Grassroots Awards Ceremony, an event celebrating the region’s local music scene and fresh talent.
Tickets for the entire weekend are priced at £99 (£95 concessions), while 11-18 year olds get half price entry and under-11s are free. Day-tickets are also available.
