The one day event has been set-up to showcase the best young and local musical talent the area has to offer, and is the second Big Jam festival after a successful first event back in April of this year.

Headlining the bill will be Castleford’s alternative rockers Allusondrugs, who are gearing up to release a six-track, self-titled EP through Leeds’ Clue Records on Monday 21st July. You can stream the EP through Kerrang!’s website.

Other bands on the bill include garage rockers Dead End Friends, James Finn, psychedelic grunge rock outfit The Rubber Sound Experiment and punk rock trio, The Sycophants.

Speaking to the Huddersfield Examiner, organiser and Dead End Friends member, 17-year-old, Daniel Sharp, said: “Hopefully it will be even bigger and better than before.”

“There is a growing Rock and Indie Music scene in Huddersfield at the moment, lead by a host of bands which are mostly made up of students from the local colleges and I am keen to raise the profile of the raw talent that exists locally.

Tickets cost £5 on the door for over 16s. Check out the Facebook event page for full details.
