Another Fine Fest: 5 DJ sets you can't miss


ULVERSTON'S biggest celebration of live music, street theatre and arts arrives on June 17 and 18, so all this week we're shining the spotlight on the must-see acts.


The Twang DJs have been hosting their own radio show since the end of last year, which has been riding high in the worldwide Mixcloud charts.

As well as hosting the hugely-popular Twang indie nights in Barrow, the pair also curate a stage at Another Fine Fest for the first time, whilst also managing sets at the start and the end of the day, and contributing to the AFF Mash-up event in the evening.
