The festival is now in its sixth successful year and has grown into a huge celebration of grass roots music and been embraced as the biggest Bed Race after party in Knaresborough.
The Bed Fest 2018 line up showcases an eclectic mix of rock, indie, acoustic, metal and hip hop acts along with a number of DJ’s, most of whom have a close connection with Knaresborough and the local community.
Starting at noon and finishing at midnight there will be music from over 20 bands and performers across four stages.
Jonathan Skinner of local band The Omega Era said:
We play Bed Fest to support Henshaws, we all know someone who is involved in some way with the charity and we fully support the work they do.
It’s an important local festival, something that is well needed in the local music scene.
Over the years we have made many friends and grown as musicians, along with playing to bigger and bigger crowds and helping to support a great organisation.
Talented Knaresborough DJ and producer Rory Hoy, who became a Henshaws ambassador last year, will also be playing at the event.
Henshaws’ Rufus Beckett, who organises Bed Fest, said:
Bed Fest helps raise funds for Henshaws to continue to offer life-changing services to disabled people in Yorkshire.
We hope this year’s event will be the biggest and best yet.
It’s a great day full of live entertainment and we hope everyone will come along and enjoy themselves.
As well as music, Bed Fest also has family friendly activities, great food, locally brewed beers, and gin and prosecco bars.
