Who knew that Chester was a happening place? Chester Live – a multi-venue, musically-diverse three dayer set for June – serves the precise purpose of putting the city out there and showing there’s more to Chester than Hollyoaks.

Unlike the high-profile city festivals, Chester Live is less about big-name headline draws and more about showcasing up-and-coming talent, with a strong emphasis on artists from the region. With 12 venues featuring genres spanning folk, rock, acoustic, metal, and electronic music, there’s no shortage of variety, or quality.

Brass Band legends, The Hot 8 Brass Band and UK alt-rock standouts Allusondrugs join Welsh alt-psych act HMS Morris, and Steph Carter’s post-Gallows band The Ghost Riders in the Sky, as well as local (and regional acts) including: Hollows, Peaness (pictured), Campfire Social, Sustinere, Shot Of Hornets, Alx Green, Damon Jacs and Indio’s Dream as a selection of the first acts announced for Chester Live 2017.

Chester Live returns for its third year in 2017 with a plethora of cross-genre acts from in, and around the Chester area, performing in venues across the city alongside national and internationally acclaimed bands.

As with previous years, Alexander’s Live, The Live Rooms, The Cornerhouse, The Piper and Telford’s Warehouse will host shows, while St Werbergh Centre will also host a number of artists. In addition, Chester Live 2017 will feature the Chester Live Street Festival taking place on Brook Street, bringing live music into the city, and directly to the people of Chester.

Chester Live 2017 will take place from 22-25 of June.
