Tired of industry bods falling over themselves in an attempt to be part of ‘Monkey-mania’, the Arctics have decided to go back to their DIY days and host their own music festival.

Having failed to find a decent venue in their native Sheffield, the four have settled for Lancashire Cricket Ground (former home of Move for those with a memory).

They band have pledged to handpick support acts whom they “like and respect” for the day-long event.
