A foot-tapping feast of live music is in store for Buxton Carnival-goers on Saturday.

This year’s free Buxton Carnival Day Concert will feature live performances by four acts on the Pavilion Gardens bandstand from 4.30pm.

Opening the concert will be five-piece band All or Nothing, famed for their blend of instantly recognisable pop, rock and soul from across the decades.

Arkham Karvers will be combing ska, indie, folk and rock with the aid of thoughtful lyrics, blistering melodies and hooks that you can’t stop humming. With influences including The Clash, The Police and Dedouin Soundclash, the band produce endless offbeat energy which never fails to get a crowd moving.

Original music rock ‘n’ roll/indie band DaisyChain will take to the stage with their high-energy and melody-driven original songs, and the line-up is completed by four-piece party band DisFUNKtional, covering everything from Motown to modern classics.

Elsewhere on Saturday, Pantonics Parade Band will be performing at the bottom of The Slopes from noon, and then on the Pavilion Gardens promenade from 3pm, while local band El-Vinos will present a concert at the Portland Hotel from 1pm.
