Applications are open!

We’re making plans for Summer 2018!

It’s our 6th year with Wigan Live (I can hardlyt believe it!), and we want to make it bigger than ever, attracting folks from all over the North West, and beyond, to see what Wigan has to offer!

We’re looking for a real variety of local music talent – there are really no bounds! And our panel listen to every single application (that’s a lot of listening time!).

The deadline for Artist Applications this year is 31st May 2018 – and we will be in contact with successful applicants as soon as possible after that.

Then comes the exciting part, we’ll be releasing the full timetable and band profile listings on our website asap after that!

The festival itself is 17th – 18th August across Wigan Town Centre, so make sure you’re available on at least 1 date

The town will be bursting with gigs and live music fans in over 7 venues.
