The fourth festival Matlock Bath Music Festival will be taking place on Saturday, July 12.

It is being held across the whole of Matlock Bath.

This year 11 venues will be playing host to over 60 acts in just a single day. Almost every style of music is represented, such as blues, indie, funk, country, skiffle, brass, and more.

A veritable army of local musicians, promoters, photographers, sound engineers, volunteers, businesses and organisers bring this yearly event to life in a unique festival setting.

The music starts at mid-day, with the venues taking part easily identified by the festival’s orange logo, bunting and posters.

Each venue is free to enter, and the local area is represented well with bands and acts from the Matlock area as well as musicians from further afield.

This year’s venues include the historic Grand Pavilion and the legendary Fishpond plus, of course, the original MBMF venue The Midland Hotel.
