Esg, Weatherall And More For Alfresco Festival

Art & Culture

Blackpool based Alfresco Festival have announced the line up to this year's one day event. Taking place on Sunday May 24th at Blackpool Cricket Club, the fest that combines a left-of-centre bill together with family friendly vibes will be headlined by New York post punk  evergreens ESG. Other big names include Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston's A Love From Outer Space, wonky disco magic from Shit Robot, and classic Factory records fodder from Section 25.

A tent entirely dedicated to family activities is promised, with theatre, science workshops, circus skills, and (and we're sold on this one) a robotoc, life-size baby T-Rex.
