30 Years of MOR

It’s now less than a month before what is set to be one of the biggest days of this year’s music calendar.
On Spring Bank Holiday Sunday 24 May, 30 Years of MOR Music Festival comes to the Fulford Arms, with what is already shaping up to be a stellar line-up.

Already announced are The Rodeo Falls, The Blueprints, Junk, Bull, The Filthy Piece, The Bronze, Stonewater and Van Der Neer. If this wasn’t already a fine sample of York’s music scene, there are more to be added in the coming weeks.

MOR Music was established in 1985, and this all-dayer is to celebrate their 30th Anniversary.

This is MOR Music’s first festival of the year, coming off the back of recent successful festivals like York 800 MOR Music Festival in 2012, where over 5000 people attended their 800 minute long outdoor festival in Parliament Street, and Music On Rails (MOR) Festival at the National Railway Museum last year which had a full stage in Station Hall and acoustic acts doing sets on a moving steam train. These festivals are MOR Music’s way of supporting the local music community.

Entry to 30 Years of MOR Music Festival is completely free of charge, so there’s no excuse not to get down and enjoy some of York’s finest live acts at one of its finest live venues.
