The third incarnation of community-based weekend festival Chester Live sees a versatile mix of music across a number of independent venues within the city this June. 

Yorkshire rockers Allusondrugs bring their grungey pop noise to Chester's The Live Room on Friday 23rd June. The band's lead singer Jason Moules not only emulates the late, great grunge god Kurt Cobain in his looks, but he definitely plays up to it as his live performances are reminiscent of Cobain himself.  Having completed a tour with Max Raptor in collaboration with music mag Scuzz, the band are on the rise.

For something a bit calmer, local melodic outfit Campfire Social play at Telfords Warehouse on Thursday 22nd June.  The five alt-folk piece play a soundtrack straight out of an indie film, with songs about heartbreak being combined with dreamy Beach Boys influenced harmonies.

Support comes from local girl band and cheekily-named Peaness. Their riot grrl attitude accompanied by their inoffensive indie pop sound has attracted attention from the likes of BBC Radio 1 and 6 Music.

Other nights include performances from the Hot 8 Brass Band, Emp!re and Faceless.
