The Mirf’ Fest Music Stage is a free live music event within Mirfield Show which features around 12 local bands. It is in conjunction with Yorkshire radio station The Pulse – delivering a real mixture of acoustic, traditional, soloists and live bands all playing covers and music from across the generations throughout the day.
Mirf’ Fest started over five years ago, and following a two year break came back. Its return was over a year in the planning, but the plan is now for the festival to grow year on year and to remain as a free attraction to the show. All you need is a ticket for Mirfield Show and this will give you access to the Mirf’ Fest Music Stage.
The original Mirf’ Fest organisers – and now members of Mirfield Show – said “Our local area has an amazing mixture of musicians from soloists to live bands and we wanted to create an event that will run alongside the Mirfield Show, and in time could grow into a whole festival itself. We will have a real mixture of acoustic, traditional, soloists and live bands all playing covers and music from across the generations, so it will be an event attractive to all.”
