‘Onwards’ is a multi-venue music festival showcasing the unique ‘sites’ and sounds Huddersfield has to offer! Likened to a pub-crawl with music; ‘Onwards’ guides the participants on a journey of musical encounters. Utilising some of Huddersfield’s best venues and pubs. Onwards provides a much-needed opportunity to celebrate its diverse range of community and bubbling local talent.

In 2016 Onwards incubated its concept and delivered a successful festival, programming events across 5 Huddersfield establishments. Over 100 people attended the festival, which saw performances and commissions from local musicians and artists.

In 2017 we have expanded Onwards to include more venues and more artists than the previous year. Still with a heavy emphasis on promoting and supporting local talent, this year’s line-up showcases the vast array of exceptional musicians and bands Huddersfield has to offer. From ‘New Orleans’ style brass bands to solo loop artists and across a multitude of genres, there is something for everyone on this musical adventure across our wonderful town!

Day tickets (wristbands) are available now priced £15, which includes entry to all events.
