From its first “one-off “festival to celebrate the Millennium in 2000 until the present Musicport has succeeded in bringing some of the finest musicians from around the world to the Yorkshire coast. From the Buena Vista Social Club to Hugh Masekela from Courtney Pine to Richard Hawley it’s been a fascinating journey of discovery for the organisers and the audience as highest quality music from lands both far away and much close to home have graced the 5 stages of this unique and friendly indoor festival.
Marking its 20th anniversary Festival Director Jim McLaughlin, who has programmed the festival since its inception, was keen to bring back some of the acts who have helped create the festival’s ethos and reputation in what will no doubt end up being seen as a
“Best Of Musicport“ line-up.
“ We think this line-up will ensure a non-stop party all weekend “ he adds
