A KEIGHLEY artist is organising a music festival.

Ben Snowden is spearheading Mirror Man Festival 2023, next June.

The event will feature more than a dozen bands from across the region.

Amongst them are Keighley-based Foxes Faux and the headline act, Goo.

The festival – presented by Mirror Man Promotions – takes place at The Underground, in Duke Street, Bradford, on Saturday, June 24.

Doors will open at noon and the event finishes at 11pm.

Tickets are £10, plus a £1.37 booking fee.

Ben says the festival will cater for all music tastes.

"Mirror Man Festival is all about celebrating underground and emerging bands – from across the Bradford district and beyond!" he adds.

"We have an amazing line up from Liverpool, Halifax, Keighley, Leeds, Brighouse and Bradford. The idea is to bring in bands from far afield and mix them with our own local music scene – and support our venues! We are grateful to The Underground for generously hosting Mirror Man Festival.

"This event is for anybody who loves music and wants to have a good time! There’s something for every music fan – be it alternative, ska punk, heavy rock, funk, jazz art, noise punk, indie, folk rock, straight up punk rock, low fi and everything in between!

"Music makes people feel alive and that’s what Mirror Man Festival is all about. Where else are you going to see 13 amazing bands for a tenner! Support your music scene and support your local music venues!"
