Screams of Youth are a 3 piece teenage rock band from around Farnhill. We are heavily influenced by bands such as Led Zeppelin and Radiohead. We are Thomas Demain on drums, Tom Smurthwaite providing bass and Ben Mcmanus is singer and lead Guitarist. Most of our songs are original works, written by Ben. We feature genres such as rock, slow rock, grunge and punk.


Stilleto! We can’t spell our name but we can throw a party, so get your dancing shoes on. Our group first formed in 2017; we have been entertaining crowds around Yorkshire with our infusion of rock, pop and soul ever since. The band now consists of 4 members: Jen, Callum, Will and Sam. All of us as mad for live music as the next. This will be our second time at Cononley campsite as we played the first Confest in 2019 and have been asked to play Confest again this year in July. But before all that; we can’t wait to see you in June!

Riverside Music Concerts

Over the Platimum Jubilee Holiday weekend we have two bands on stage, who will be entertaining young and old in their own special way. What a great way to round off your Bank Holiday weekend at Riverside Campsite!

“Screams of Youth” and “Stilleto” – both popular local bands – will be performing on Saturday 4th June 2022. We are expecting the site to be busy – so be sure to phone Alison early to book your pitch and avoid disappointment.

Our campers can enjoy this concert – and other smaller events on site – free of charge.

From 2021 Riverside Campsite’s Alison and James have been hosting their own music concerts for our campers, caravanners and motorhomers.

The summer of 2021 saw popular entertainers, the Fascinating Rhythm Duo take to the stage and delight our campers with songs from the 60s and 70s.
