LINE UP, a brand new one-day festival, is coming to Malvern on Sunday 27 August from 11am-10:30pm. Taking place at Malvern Cube on Albert Road North, festival goers can expect an adventurous and exciting mix of music performances and arts workshops. 

From 11am-1pm there will be FREE family-friendly arts workshops. Local artist Amanda Jackson will be running a cyanotype workshop, where objects are assembled on pre-coated paper and exposed to sunlight to create artwork. Another local artist, Megan Evans, will be using paint blowing to create monsters and rocket ships. 

Severn Arts Music Box will also be on site, packed with digital music-making equipment including DJ decks, electronic drum machines, synthesizers, and a vocal booth for people to climb aboard and have a go. 

From 2pm – 10:30pm, there will be an eclectic programme of music including jazz, electronic, pop, drone and dance performed by local musicians. 

Lee Farley, Community Arts Coordinator said: ‘I'm unbelievably excited about Line Up Festival. I've been having conversations with friends and colleagues locally for many years about putting on something like this in Malvern; I'm so pleased it's finally happening! Huge thanks to Malvern Hills District Council and Severn Arts for supporting this opportunity. We have an incredible range of acts and workshops Lined Up! From spoken word jazz poetry to a mechanical techno. This is a festival for adventurous, curious music lovers. We can't wait to see everyone at Malvern Cube!’ 

Sam Underwood, Festival Performer & Frontman of ORE said: ‘It’s great to have an event like Line Up starting locally. ORE are delighted to have been asked to perform. We live locally and have played alongside the amazing artists who will be performing, but never at an event so close to home. Line Up is breaking new ground and bringing some of the most exciting underground artists to Malvern.’
