Update to freedom festival 2011 line up
We have been contacted from people up and down the country for information of the 2011 line up. Unfortunately we have had no news of any bands being lined up to play at this years festival.
We have contacted Hull city council and they tell us all the information is on their website.
Its not looking good folks! We checked the website and there is no mention of any bands playing the festival! If that is the case it looks like there are no bands booked to play at the 2011 freedom festival. If that is not the case and bands have been booked its Hulls best kept secret.
We are checking the situation an a daily basis and will post any further information about the festival when we get it.
If there was ever anything worth staying in Hull for the whole weekend for then Hulls freedom festival is it and your sure to get the warmest of welcomes from the people of Hull.
Best kept secrets
The festival is one of the countries best kept secrets mainly due to the lack of promotion, even as i right this the the freedom festival website is “Comming soon” (its only been three years)
Unfortunately Hull has never been good at selling its self. If last years success is anything to go by the Hotels in Hull should be fully booked by now and they probably would have been had this popular festival got the promotion it so thoroughly deserves.
Holding our breath…
The only act to be announced so far is French street-theatre company Luc Amoros, who will perform their Page Blanche show as part of the festival. The event organizers assure us that the festival will be as good as any but with the lack of information regarding the acts We will be holding out on booking our hotel room just yet.
