The List Festival returns to Yorkshire Scare Grounds this July
If you’re in Europe, you will definitely want to check out The List Festival! It is a small, boutique, and cultural music and arts festival based at The Yorkshire Scare grounds in Wakefield. Already sounds like fun! From July 29th to 31st 2022, it offers three carefully curated areas of music, a mouthwatering array of street food vendors and plenty of local artists doing live shows, drag queen performances and plenty more with headliners including Prosumer, Crazy P, Mark Farina, Sean Johnston, James Holroyd, Maxxi Soundsystem, PBR Streetgang, Paramida, Begin, Annabel Fraser, Tristan da Cunha and many more. Head to Eventbrite for tickets.
The List Festival is a proudly small and independent gathering. You will adore the warm and welcoming vibe the festival gives off. There’s something about those small, intimate events that just can’t be replicated. It caters towards music and art lovers of all ages with a boutique feel. The festival showcases diverse sounds in a laid back environment all within one safe space. It is proud to be all-inclusive: there is no discrimination to race, color, creed, or sexual orientation, which is a wonderful environment for everyone!
With this in mind, the festival works with Huddersfield based charity HIVE which focuses on Mental Health wellbeing for the LGBTQ+ Community along with other sectors of Mental Health. This charity will have a presence throughout The List Festival as well as a private drop in tent where anyone wanting to speak to someone in confidence is available. This is awesome!
The festival has three main areas.
First up, you’ve got Sin City that hosts Dottie a 1970’s airstream trailer fully kitted out with Master Sounds tech and a TPI sound system. Throughout the day it will provide everything from Balearic to House to Disco with UK favorites Crazy P, former Panorama Bar resident Prosumer, Manchester mainstay James Holroyd, plus more from Nancy Noise, Sally Rogers, Reeshy, Demi Riquisimo, J.Cub and PBR Streetgang. The icing on the cake comes in the form of Mark Farina flying in from Chicago to play his iconic mushroom jazz set!
Next up, The Forbidden Forest stage is for after dark action in the woods! It’s going to get WILD! Expect high end audio and striped back lighting that allows you to dance like nobody’s watching. Get that groove on! The music reflects the surroundings; darker, deeper with an edge from the likes of Rob Mello, Lil Mark, Sean Johnston, Paramida, and Tristan da Cunha.
Finally, The Lucky Cat Cabaret area is new for 2022! This is colorful and flamboyant with an anything goes vibe. Heavy on production, celebrated radio personality JoJo will host drag acts, performances, and anything else that her wild imagination can conjure during the day. As night falls, think of the spirit of ’The Paradise Garage’ with sets from Annabel Fraser, Jamie Bull, Red Laser Records, Apricot Ballroom, and Buckley next to many more.
You will LOVE the food options! Keep your body fueled with fresh pizza from Cozy P Pizza, boozy eats from Bastard’s Bistro, and plant based world inspired cuisine from Honest Supper Club, with plenty of extra surprises also in store.
The List Festival is a cosy and compact gathering for cultured dancers of all ages. Do not miss.
