Ouseburn Farm Aid is set to return for its third year on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th July, bringing a weekend packed with live music, great beer and animal cuteness to the Ouseburn Valley.

A collaboration between The Cluny and neighbours Ouseburn Farm, the event supports the work of the Farm which provides an educational space for young people and for the city’s vulnerable residents to gain skills and build friendships, as well as being on hand for hipsters to cuddle piglets into the bargain.

Previous years have seen the likes of Paul Smith and Idle Hands head the line-ups, and this year’s roll call is no less exceptional, with balladeer The Lake Poets, up and coming songwriter Callum Pitt and the awesome talents and cracking vocals of Cortney Dixon joining the ever-reliable Rob Heron, hypnotic popsters Nano Kino, visual storytellers Hector Gannet and fuzzy lo-fi rockers Headclouds. There’s also a brand new programme of activities planned in the Orchard on Sunday, and The Cluny reprise their infamous Duck Race, with the coveted Golden Duck trophy up for grabs.
