Mothership festival is returning to York this weekend on Sunday 4th June, and Jorvik Radio are the official partners.

The festival will be taking place at Acomb Sports Club and gates open from 12pm. The sell-out experience will feature Local band The Corsairs - winners of the Jorvik Radio battle of the band competition. The local artists will be opening Mothership on the main stage at 1pm.

Robbie Burns, Operations Director at Jorvik Radio said:

“We’re absolutely delighted to have been asked to host Mothership Festival for 2023. This will be our second year hosting this fantastic event, and we can’t wait to help create a very memorable and successful day. The team are a joy to work with, and put on a sell-out event every year! We can’t wait to be part of it, and hopefully with good weather!”

The open-air festival will feature the following during the afternoon:

2pm - Lily Hope and Simon Snaize: Country and Americana meets York guitar.

3pm - Living Young: newly formed by Davey Richmond, the band will entertain with high energy rock covers.

4pm - The Y Street Band: the ultimate feel-good band, well known across York and beyond

Described as a ‘Mothership institution’, The Supermodels will be headlining and closing the festival at 6pm.

As well as great music, the festival will host multiple food and drink stalls. People are encouraged to also bring their own picnics. Alcohol will be permitted, but no glass will be allowed on site.

Last year, Mothership festival raised £15,000 which aided in the continuation of the club’s activities and facilities. This further helped to refurbish the clubhouse.

Dave Sykes, of Mothership Festival added:

“This is yet another successful year for Mothership in terms of ticket sales. Mothership is all about supporting local artists and bands, and we can’t wait to bring the house down yet again at Acomb Sports Club.”
