Coming Soon: Musicport Festival

Whitby Pavilion, West Cliff, Whitby 
Friday 20 - Sunday 22 October 2017 

Often referred to as the UK's biggest indoor festival of 'world music' the event covers a much broader and more eclectic range of music than that term implies and the organiser Jim McLaughlin believes that the term 'local, national, international' describes it much better. With over 50 acts on 6 stages within the one building (Whitby Pavilion) it is as intimate and friendly an event as one could imagine and has a reputation developed over 18 years for the high quality of its programming, acts and production. 

This year will also see the first of the Northern Sky Interviews, which will take place throughout the weekend.

This year's line-up includes:

Afro Celt Sound System
Benjamin Zephaniah and The Revolutionary Minds
