Clarence Roars – The 30th Birthday Party! This is Clarence Park Festival’s 30th anniversary.

Wakefield Music Collective present the district’s favourite music festival, which is celebrating its 30th year with a fantastic mixture of bands and styles. The original DIY festival, the group raises all their own funds to put on what is Wakefield’s annual pilgrimage for many people across the district! One of Wakefield’s most famous phrases is “See you at Clarence”! This is the longest running free festival in Yorkshire and the biggest! Quite possibly the biggest in the country! Past acts include Dodgy, Zodiac Mindwarp and the Love Reaction, Eddie and the Hotrods, Kid G, Healthy Junkies, Issimo and Wrinkle (The Cribs first incarnation) and there have been many more..

We have 22 bands of different genres, local, national and often international. A bar with a fine selection of beer, spirits and wine, 2 stages, lovely food vendors and stalls. Also DJs between sets! DJs Wendy and Woody step up the party in between acts plus DJs from Wakefield College.

There is something for everyone – rock, pop, indie, folk, blues, funk, electro – you name it, we have it! Come down to the fantastic Clarence Park and join the party!

The festival starts at 12 noon and runs till 9pm each day. Parking is on Lawfield Lane, in the arena. Stewards will guide you. There will be a variety of stalls and small rides for children. We have an information tent and t-shirt stall.

See you there!
