The incredible Warrington-based charity festival, RivFest, is back for 2021! From 6-8th August, a smorgasbord of acts will be laid on, and tickets for this hotly anticipated event go on sale Friday 30th April.
The festival was originally set up by the River Reeves Foundation, following the tragic passing of the band Viola Beach in 2016. This year, it’ll be breathing life on Warrington’s 3,000-person-capacity Old Market Square, with Hacienda DJ Graeme Park headlining the Friday. If you’ve missed late-night party anthems, this buzzing set absolutely has your name on it and will feature tunes from Park’s 30-year-strong career.
Everything Everything have snagged the headline slot on the Saturday, and they’ll be joined on the day by indie faves, Eliza & The Bear, and Liverpool’s dream-pop act, Pizzagirl.
As for the Sunday, the grunge-pop tones of Glastonbury Emerging artist, Abi Rose Kelly, will command the stage. You’ll also notice names such as Jessica Luise, who we interviewed, plus emerging talents, The A.V. Club and Liam Hillyer!
Better yet, all proceeds from ticket sales will be sent back into the charity, which gives grants of up to £500 to support young people and those from disadvantaged backgrounds in their musical endeavours. Phenomenal stuff.
