2018 welcomes a brand new festival, Pop Punk Pile Up Festival that will take place at The Venue in Selby from the 27th – 29th April 2018.

“Running events has been something we have done for 10 years and now we feel the time is right to show the world we can go that step further and host a huge event like a festival. We have opted to use the venue that we grew in. Music is a long held passion and this is a step forward for us. We are hoping to achieve success in our first year to help us develop and grow the festival!” – claims Adam Ruane, Pop Punk Pile Up Festival and Riff Media Director.

With the likes of The King Blues, Room 94, The Bottom Line and a secret headliner still to announce playing throughout the weekend, Riff Media proves that they have already grown interest from larger bands wishing to play for them on a larger scale. For their first year they have secured a fantastic line up for such a small, intimate setting, so trust us when we say, you won’t want to miss it!

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
