Cotton Clouds Festival returned to Saddleworth Cricket Club this weekend for its third year, with headline sets from The Wailers, Peter Hook & The Light, along with music from Reverend and the Makers and Tim Burgess, the weekend was always going to go down well.
Featuring headline sets from The Wailers and Peter Hook & The Light as well as much much more great music, Cotton Clouds Festival returns in 2019 with its best line-up yet!
This year the festival is stacked with a long list of talent, from the best emerging artists to some of the best-known established musicians.
Blackthorn Festival is a pretty small festival, held at Whitebottom Farm in Stockport. But don’t let the size of the festival fool you, over the weekend the three-stage event showcased some of the best local talent from the neighbouring city Manchester as well as bringing headliners The Pigeon Detectives and Scouting For Girls along with local food, drink and a strong sense of community.
Castlefield Bowl is an iconic Manchester venue, the outdoor arena is located in the centre of town and surrounded by the industrial architecture of Deansgate locks, with the train track running on a bridge alongside the amphitheatre, canals and barges along the other, it feels like you’re in the middle of nowhere, yet at the centre of everything at the same time.
Horwich isn’t a place I go looking for bands, I grew up just around the corner from the Bolton borough and never expected to see any exciting new artists playing there anytime soon. But this year Horwich Music Festival caught my eye, with exciting headline artists and a variety of music through the day, I was eager to go and see what it was all about.
