“I think the Humber Street Sesh Festival on Saturday will be something really special!” says Martin Deane of Hull and East Riding Green Party.
“It’s a real community tribute to Mark Page, the organiser, who’s celebrating 10 years of The Sesh music night on Princes Ave. The Humber Street Sesh on Saturday will be a tremendous local community initiative celebrating Hull’s creativity and originality, its artistry and musicianship. There’ll be oceans of live music with about 140 acts playing on 7 stages around Humber Street.
“It’s a first event of its kind and size for Hull with its crowd-sourced funding where literally thousands of pounds was raised by ordinary people across Hull. Within 10 days they had reached their initial target of £5000 and reached £12,000 in donations and funding.
There will be a pop-up 24ft cinema. There will also be a silent disco too where people will be dancing wearing headphones to be fed by 3 DJs an hour – 36 DJs over the 12 hours, organised by the Residents’ Association (a monthly Adelphi dance night).
“I think the day will be a milestone in Hull’s musical history.”
“I’ll be there supporting my favourite bands!”
“Just look at this list!!”
