The event will see the likes of Purple Mafia, Snuff, and Summer City play alongside headliners Rosie on the main stage at at Ripon Youth Centre at Outwood Academy Ripon on Saturday, July 6.

Youngsters will also get the chances to learn banner painting, drumming, circus skills and graffiti art and play on a mobile skatepark.

The event is free but is limited to a 500 people, so organisers will operate on a first come first served basis when the gates open at 3pm.

Area arts co-ordinator for Harrogate, Matt Burrows said: “It’s great that we are returning to Ripon for what promises to be a fantastic event after the success of last year.

“There is so much young musical talent in this area.”
