Macclesfield in October has honestly one of the best festival line ups you’ll see this year. Bringing you up to speed, Macclesfield is obviously known for its huge history of music. Known as the hometown of Ian Curtis and Stephen Morris of Joy Division, and Gililan Gilbert, who along with Stephen Morris was a member of New Order. Despite having a rich musical heritage Macclesfield has few cultural amenities. In 2004, research was published in The Times naming Macclesfield and its borough the most uncultured town in Britain, based on its lack of theatres, cinemas and other cultural facilities. This festival is part of an initiative to overcome this.
Set to take place October 22nd – 24th 2021 at Christ Church, Macclesfield, the three day event is a non profit initiative working closely with The Christie Cancer Hospital.
Friday Night – Headlining is the phenomenal Peter Hook & The Light, supported by Yellow Brain, San Pedro Collective, Suddi Raval, Leon The Pig Farmer & local Macclesfield rising stars Queen Cult.
Saturday Full day of music – With I Am Kloots John Bramwell, Cabbage, Space Monkey, Sylvette, Dave Fiddler, The Pagans S.O.H, Bethlehem Casuals, local band Sinclair and M30.
