Artists: James / Primal Scream / Wolf Alice
Venue: Roundhay Park, Leeds
With sponsorship from John Lewis and Puffin Books, and an emphasis on being family friendly, the inaugural OnRounday event had a somewhat middle-class feel, but proved to be a rather pleasant one-day festival.
It was nice to see so many kids enjoying their first experience of live music, from an excellent selection of bands. The family-friendly vibe (or possibly the expensive drinks) seemed to ensure that the event was devoid of the usual herds of drunken knobheads – always a plus-point!
OnRoundhay would be a welcome annual event, so long as they can match the high standards of its first year.
