Welcome to Lancaster's unofficial Bank Holiday Weekend! Thanks to the success of 2013 the 2014 Festival will launch on Thurs. Oct. 9th and after another manic weekend packed with excellent music will attempt to finish sometime on Mon. Oct. 13th. We strongly suggest you plan ahead and book this long weekend off! There will be nearly 40 venues and locations and, again, hundreds of superb musicians locally, nationally, and from abroad, covering a vast array of genres. We have some surprises in store for 2014 too. More information in the New Year.
