THE LIGHTENING SEEDS, CAST, CABBAGE & Sheffield’s own music legends MILBURN announced for festival


Charity based Mosborough music festival enters its 7th year. On the back of a sold out and highly successful 2015 and 2016 this popular and very affordable Sheffield festival has grown year on year. 
With the old site at Mosborough now under development the festival has had to move on. After exhausting all possibilities to keep the festival local, festival organiser Steve Cowens said. “As a local lad I’m proud of what we have done in Mosborough and brought so many household names in music to the village but I suppose all good things come to an end. We had two offers regarding moving the festival site but one was in Rotherham and the other in North East Derbyshire. I’m a proud Sheffield lad and I really wanted to keep the festival in Sheffield, plus I’d still be dealing with the local authorities who I have to say have been brilliant in their support and advise. So we decided that Don Valley Bowl was to be our new home, it has great transport links, it’s a great venue and it’s also two minutes from the M1 and surrounded by good hotels, it’s perfect really. We will however be keeping Mosborough as a name, we are renowned now for our great line ups, good value, family friendly atmosphere and our charity work, so losing Mosborough’s name plus having to move would have seen 6 years hard work come to nothing and it would be like starting all over again, keeping Mosborough’s name is no big deal, Don Valleys only 5 miles from Mosborough and there’s Halifax banks in Sheffield town centre!”.

Three stages will see 26 bands play continuous music throughout the weekend.
This year’s headliners are multi award winning; THE LIGHTENING SEEDS. Joining them in a top quality line up are fellow Brit-pop legends CAST. Bruce Foxton’s FROM THE JAM see Mosborough’s stages have three top headliners for the first time. Also on the bill are two fantastic South of England based bands, THE DUALERS will belt out their infectious SKA/Reggae set and Essex based MISSING ANDY are no stranger to the festival as they complete a hat-trick of appearances. John Reilly also brings his fantastic band BOY ON A DOLPHIN along. Tribute bands ANTARTIC MONKEYS and HAPPY MONDAZE are sure to get people singing and dancing. Midlands based outfit MARQUIS DRIVE have been with us since day one and do a covers indie set that always goes down a storm. Popular local SKA band JUNGLE LION are also on the bill. As usual Mosborough doesn’t forget Sheffield’s best established and up-coming bands, THE SSS, SUNDANCE, THE VELCRO TEDDY BEARS, THE WIRED, SPEARS, SWEET LITTLE MACHINE, MILANE and hotly tipped for the top ODDITY ROAD make up the local bands with Doncaster’s brilliant GINGER TOM, Leeds fantastic five piece electro Indie band APOLLO JUNCTION. Birmingham’s THE ASSIST and Leeds SKA band BENSON making up our best line up to date. Mosborough really has a top quality line up. 
Friday evening see’s us go into partnership with Sheffield’s own music legends MILBURN who along with REVEREND & THE MAKERS kick off the festival with support from Manchester’s post punk band CABBAGE.
