Musicians from across the county will be taking part in NMFusion next month to help raise money for this year’s Northampton Music Festival.

The all-day event on Saturday, April 22, is at the Charles Bradlaugh and has been organised by final year Events Management students from the University of Northampton.

Split into two parts, the night set will be headlined by Madame Electrifie with the day headlined by Emily Faye.

NMFusion Project Manager Shannon Rowland said: “We’re really lucky to have so many performers willing to perform and donate their time to the event. We’ve got a brilliant line-up and are so appreciative to everyone who is playing - it’s great to see so much support for NMFusion and the Northampton Music Festival.

“Northampton has a really varied music scene so there was a lot to choose from - there is something for everyone.”

Music begins at midday with sets by Alex Taylor, Jen Dobson, Stacey Pierre, George Carson, Velvet Engine, Nicole Drury & Tom Jones, Amii Dawes, Carly Loasby and Will Rogers before Emily Faye headlines.

Music the resumes at 7pm with sets by Empyre, O’Mahon, Sarpa Salpa, Eddy and the Remedy, Leo Robinson and Charlie Borthwick and The Red Triangle before headliner Madame Electrifie.

The annual Northampton Music Festival returns on Sunday, June 18.

Miss Rowland added: “The festival is a free event, run by a not-for-profit organisation.

“Producing a festival of five stages across the town centre is an expensive task and every year the organisers rely entirely on sponsors and grants to run the festival, so they need as much support to raise funds as possible.

“The money raised from NMFusion will go towards the running costs of the Northampton Music Festival.

“The Northampton music scene at the moment is very exciting. There’s such a huge variety of music in the town, there really is something to suit everyone’s taste.

“Northampton has some very talented musicians and there’s always a steady stream of gigs going on around the town and the county, so you can always find great live music somewhere.”

Tickets for NMFusion are available the day or night events or both. Prices start at £6 for adults, and £4 for children.
