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.
In just two weeks Blackthorn Music Festival is returning to Whitebottom Farm for its 8th year. In the past, the festival has played host to some of the best upcoming talent from the surrounding Manchester area and further afield in the UK, while always topping the line up with unforgettable headliners.
On Saturday Manchester Academy 2 saw a massive homegrown show take to its stage. The night, headlined by Glass Caves, was a huge step for the local group, who tightly packed the great venue with hundreds of excited followers. Not only that, but supporting the quartet was another two of Manchester’s finest upcoming artists Kashmere and Freeda, who were the perfect openers for the unforgettable night
Later this month, Manchester Academy 2 will see a massive homecoming show for three of Manchester’s fastest growing artists- Glass Caves, Kashmere and Freeda.
