WHAT THE PRESS SAID ABOUT MUSIC MONTH 2023

“Bradford ready to rock this November” - The Independent

“Bradford Music Month aims to showcase its diverse music scenes.” - MixMag

“Bradford’s staunchly independent music scene finds itself in rude health.” - CLASH

“Bradford Music Month to bring 'bassline and bhangra' to district” - BBC News


 

‘Gail told the Telegraph & Argus: "We are incredibly grateful for the support Bradford Music Month has received so far - our Garden Of Eden event, which consisted of intimate, stripped back performances and music-led well-being workshops across two days, drew people as far as Sheffield into the city to enjoy just a snippet of some of the incredible musicians we have within our city’.

 

‘The first Bradford Music Month took place in 2022 - and with 2025 UK City of Culture nearing, the team hopes the initiative will become a regular date in the area's cultural calendar in the future.’ Telegraph & Argus

 

‘Bradford Music Month is an attempt to celebrate and platform the city’s creative communities, the people who are helping to create a brand new soundtrack for this Northern hub’.

 

‘We started to develop the idea for Music Month when Bradford Festival ceased to exist, as Bradford did not have its own, stand-alone Music Festival that incorporates multiple genres. Seeing this gap in the district, along with a shortfall of opportunities for young and emerging musicians to help develop and hone their craft, Music Month was born – and here we are, hoping to shine a light on some of the brilliant things happening here!’ Clash Magazine

 

Mr Archibong, who grew up in Bradford, described music as "such a power force" in the district.

 

"The month is about showcasing everything that's happening in the local music scene, it's an opportunity to highlight all the good things that are going on here," he said.

"With city of culture and the redevelopment of the Bradford Odeon as Bradford Live, having as many flagship cultural offerings is a really good thing for the city and surrounding areas." BBC

Bradford Music Month launched last year as part of its 2025 UK City of Culture initiative with hopes the month will continue beyond 2025.

 

Sinead Campbell, Bradford Music Month Project Manager says: “Music Month shines a light on the diverse gigs and workshops happening around the district.”

 

She adds: “It is great to work on a project with a goal to grow whilst remaining authentic- keeping values of quality and inclusivity intact.” Mix Mag

 

Organisers of Bradford Music Month said they hope to "inspire, entertain and engage" communities with a variety of concerts, workshops and other events taking place in the district throughout November. 

 

Sinead, project manager, said: "We are extremely excited about Music Month this year with its extensive programme.

"We hope to inspire, entertain and engage a range of communities across the district with music. Telegraph and Argos
