Music lovers in Hertfordshire will have a new festival to attend this summer, as 'Harpenden Live' launches in July.

The event will take place off Lower Luton Road, from noon on July 15.

Artists - including Harpenden's own India Arkin and Brighton band 'Barbara' - will play throughout the day, until 10.30pm.


Sam Clift, an emerging singer-songwriter from Harpenden’s Katherine Warington School, will also take to the stage.

A family play area and food and drink from local providers will be present at the event.

Dean Inns, co-owner of festival organisers Harpenden Arts Limited, said: "The UK has one of the best music scenes in the world and having a festival to support new music and supporting those artists who are starting out on their journeys is really important, allowing (them) to perform to a broad audience at our family friendly festival."

Prices start at £15, with tickets available via the festival's website
