The popular festival is taking place on Saturday 17th June, and applications to perform can now be made online at the LIVE in Barnsley website here.
LIVE in Barnsley is a free music festival organised by local volunteers in the town centre, and showcases the diverse musical talents in the town and surrounding areas.
Mr Dugher, a patron of the festival, commented:
"LIVE in Barnsley is something we should be enormously proud of in Barnsley. It has become one of the most popular events of the year, attracting thousands of visitors. It is also a real showcase of talent in the Borough and the surrounding area.
"Having performed at the festival every year since it first started, I know what a tremendous opportunity it is to play in front of the local crowd.
"I encourage all local musicians to get involved in this fantastic event."
