All the money raised at the event will go straight to the Hull Food Bank. The day of live music will run from 1pm until approximately 11pm, with bands starting around 4pm.

Some of the live musicians include John Cox, Mucky Pups, Cutty, Brosnan and Big River, with bdrmm headlining. Up-and-coming act bdrmm have just finished a European tour with the Scottish band Mogwai after their debut album received 5 out 5 from the NME in 2020.

There will also be a number of DJ sets, as well as a “rock and roll raffle” with donations from the bands and local businesses. Prizes include vintage clothing, bdrmm merch and vinyl, paddingtons t-shirts, a hair appointment from Milk in Paragon Arcade, a tattoo session from Ben @ 3BlindMice and a photo session from Luna Inc.

Tickets are available for the raffle at Arthouse on Princes Avenue.

Joe Vickers of the Open Care Group said: “We are really grateful to all the acts and also Katherine from Arthouse who have all given their time for free to help support the cause. The Hull Food Bank has been providing record numbers of support to the local community over the past year which has been made possible from the kind donations received from the public.

“However, the need has never been greater for donations with the rising cost of living. The food bank is receiving more requests for support than ever

“The Open Care Group wanted to put on the festival in order to help support the amazing work done by the Hull Food Bank. The work they do in the local community is vital to help support those who are struggling with the recent raises in fuel and petrol prices. “
