During the Spring Bank Holiday weekend, Future Yard’s free vinyl and craft beer market will return.
Now on it’s third instalment, June’s CRATE is set to feature even more local breweries, vinyl vendors and independent artists.
This time, the event extends outside and will take over the garden space with more stalls. This means even more great beer and music to dig through, and more DJs playing great tunes around it all.
The market brings together the worlds of vinyl obsessives and craft beer aficionados for a daytime fair that pulls together some of the best local record labels, vendors, brewers, printmakers and DJs in the North West.
CRATE will run from 11am until 8pm and, once again, entry is free.
Upcoming events at Future Yard:
Minami Deutsch – 19 August 2022
Future Yard will be hosting the epic Krautrock band, Minami Deutsch, in Birkenhead this August. Hailing from Tokyo’s bustling gig scene, the band have quickly made a name for themselves in Europe after signing to English cult label, Cardinal Fuzz Records in 2015. Two albums met with glowing reviews have followed since, establishing the group as modern Krautrock + Psychedelia mainstays who are a force to be reckoned with in the live arena. Tickets here
Circuit Des Yeux – 30 August 2022
August ends with the arresting experimental indie-folk of Haley Fohr, aka Circuit Des Yeux, following on from her astonishing new album -io, released in 2021. Circuit des Yeux crafts haunting, emotionally complex music that relates to the human condition, for what’s sure to be an emotional journey of a show, guided by Fohr’s arresting, four-octave voice and inventive 12-string guitar playing. Tickets here
Joshua Ray Walker – 1 September 2022
The Texan Country troubadour sensation Joshua Ray Walker graces Future Yard’s stage to kick off September. Once the best-kept secret of the Dallas’ music scene, JRW catapulted himself into the international spotlight with his 2019 debut, Wish You Were Here. An album of character-driven songwriting and golden-era Texas twang, Wish You Were Here didn’t just nod to the larger-than-life troubadours who’d inspired Walker’s craft — it brought him into their ranks, too, adding Walker’s name to the shortlist of songwriters worthy of carrying the torches of Guy Clark, John Prine, and Blaze Foley.
