A lineup sent straight from the heavens, RivFest returns 6th – 8th August with its biggest event to date. RivFest was set up by the River Reeves Foundation after the band Viola Beach tragically died in a car accident 5 years ago. All proceeds from ticket sales will be going back into the charity which provides grants of up to £500 to support young people and those from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve their artistic ambitions.
Now firmly established as one of the key fixtures in the region, the charity festival returns to the 3,000 capacity Old Market Square, Warrington with a three-day weekender of major names and tipped new talent.
Kicking off the festival on the Friday night is Hacienda legend Graeme Park. Saturday sees one of the best live acts on the circuit Everything Everything headline and Sunday hears Glastonbury emerging long-listed grunge pop singer Abi Rose Kelly grace the stage.
