Old Town Live is back for 2022!! Our one-day music festival will be held across Stevenage Old Town in bars, pubs and from on-street stages on Saturday 6th of August, 2022. Between 11.00 am and 01.00 am a rotating programme of bands, djs and singers from all genres will play different locations on the High Street and in venues. The event will provide local businesses with another opportunity to promote their business to a wider audience, raise awareness of their service or offer, which will ultimately lead to increased footfall. It will again support local music acts as they perform live after further issues and restrictions from COVID-19. 2022…bigger and better!
