Northampton Music Festival, Northampton Town Centre, Sun 17 June

Photography: Gavin Whitner

You can save your pennies for a summer holiday as this festival is free. It is held right in the heart of the town centre which means it is easily accessible to all who want to go, also due to the central location you can pop in and out without an issue. The festival is really keen to promote the artists and groups that are based within the community and tries to raise the profile of the artists and the town as well. Hear, hear, Muddy approves.
