Peace in the Park as you all know by now is a community-driven, charitable festival which relies on donations and fundraisers. If you want to help the cause, feel free to attend an upcoming fundraiser or donate over at the Local Giving page.
Here’s some more information on the acts we’ve got appearing on the main stage…
Headlining the afternoon we have Sheffield legends Bison. The orange army have a history of seriously rocking the main stage at Peace in the Park and we’re sure this year will be no different!
Ska/funk/reggae goodness, always provide the goods. They released their debut album for free last year and recently celebrated 10 years of being a band!
MANGO RESCUE TEAM
Tropical explosion Mango Rescue Team have gone from strength to strength these past few years, and we hear they are the only band going that provide their own inflatable palm trees.
Nothing quite beats getting your legs up to a cabaret-tinged Balkan Bandits show!
Post rock jazz maestros shall be bringing a touch of class to the afternoon’s proceedings, musical prowess at its finest.
STEEL CITY RHYTHM
Reggae/dub heads Steel City Rhythm can be found playing festivals up and down the country this summer. Lovely grooves, lovely horns, lovely vibes.
Soul funksters Papa Soul playing the finest selection of tunes from across the musical spectrum.
Relatively new to the scene, Forefathers shall be opening up the day with their blend of afrobeat, funk and and brassy soul!
Peace in the Park itself will have a plethora of other stages and entertainment throughout the day, you can find out more information over at www.peaceinthepark.org.uk.
See you in the fields!
