This event has been and gone.

On spring Bank Holiday Weekend 24 – 26 May Bradford Threadfest returns for a second year of independent live music celebration. After a successful and vibrant debut, Threadfest 2013 sees even more venues, collectives, musicians, bands and promoters join forces to offer a free taste of the city’s DIY and grassroots musical activity.

Bradford has a rich history of self-organised cultural activity, reflected in venues like the 1 in 12 Club, the heyday of the people-led Bradford Festival and Mela, and many community-focused arts and music initiatives. Likewise it has more than its fair share of unique spaces that regularly host local and international acts attracted to the alternative character of the city. Threadfest aims to pull this activity together into a weekend that showcases and mixes up the various scenes and communities.

The thread between these events takes the form of a Bradford Music Map that helps audiences new and old navigate the city. There is no specified path or correct order of things, no headliners and support acts, just music that you hopefully haven’t come across all at once. Come along and help join the dots.

A stripped down 3 piece featuring members of Lords and Wolves Of Greece. Described as ‘distorted noise-rock’, they make music like a pot of water constantly on the boil. Bubbling, steaming and popping, spraying scalding heat out in all directions before settling down to seethe quietly.
