2020 marks the 40th anniversary of the first gig by Calder Valley’s longest serving band Fez  (we beat the Outer Zeds by a couple of years).  

When we held our 30th Anniversary gig in the Trades back in 2010, we jokingly said we would be back for our 40th –  now here we are ten years later and amazingly still going strong with a new album out in June. 

So this year we plan to celebrate not just with a gig but with a weekend of events, a FEZtival if you will, featuring some of our favourite artists all of whom have a Fez connection. And yes, we know that’s a cheesy pun but we couldn’t resist it.

So save the date. The weekend of the 8th / 9th August will see a whole lot of musical talent on show. And being a notorious bunch of lefties we’ll be holding the events at the two most respected and iconic not-for-profit community-owned co-operative music venues in the Calder Valley, the Trades Club and the Puzzle.

More details to come – follow us on Facebook for updates on the FEZtival. Be great to see you there.
