NEWS: Ramsbottom Festival 2014

imageOutdoor festival season may be drawing to a close but before we pack away our camping gear for another year, we head for the green fields of Lancashire’s Ramsbottom Festival. Only 12 miles away from Manchester, Rammy Fest takes place 19th – 21st September at Ramsbottom Cricket Club in Bury. Now in its fourth year, it’s pulled together an admirable list of established names and local emerging talent as well as an impressive range of family entertainment and kids activities, featuring circus performers, puppets, dancers, music and magic.

Friday’s line up ranges from Berlin Berlin‘s krautrock influenced electro-pop to the glam garage of The Tapestry, psych pop tunes of Bird to Beast to the legendary indie folk of The Levellers.

Saturday brings the sounds of Merseybeat, Uke punk, raggae and trip hop, culminating in a performance from British Sea Power, one of the most brilliantly unhinged and creative acts this country has ever produced. Admiral Fallow also make a welcome return, following a hit performance in 2012 with an indie-rock line-up of clarinet, flute, double bass, strings and jaw dropping vocals.

Sunday is an equally eclectic offering, from vintage acoustic swing to traditional Irish song and electro folk. British dance and R&B legends Soul II Soul will see out the 2014 festival season with a bang giving festival crowds the ultimate summer finale.

Adult day ticket – from £24
Adult weekend ticket – £66
