Press Release


Friday 29th August & Saturday 30th August 2015

Showcasing some of the best unsigned bands and soloists from the local area and further afield, Wigan Live Festival returns for a third year.

This August bank holiday weekend sees the centre of Wigan once again play host to a smorgasbord of musical talent, with free entry to all 10 venues throughout the weekend. With so many genres represented, from rock to blues to folk and beyond, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Tim Critchley, Head organiser of Wigan Live Festival, says “It’s such a great time to watch some of the best live music around, support our community and promote this year’s charity which is Derian House”. Wigan Live proudly supports one charity each year, and in 2014 raised hundreds in donations for The PKD Charity.
