Line-up announced for the fifth Goose Green Festival
Altrincham Unlimited, Altrincham’s Business Improvement District (the BID), has announced the line-up for Goose Green Festival 2019.
The festival takes place over two days on the Saturday and Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend (24th & 25th August) with live music from 12-8pm on both days.
Altrincham Unlimited has again teamed up with the Goose Green Traders to bring together an impressive line-up of bands and singers to Goose Green, mixing favourites from previous years with up-and-coming artists, attracting some strong local names as well as some from further afield. Performances on the Saturday will include Luna Bay, Delights, Carl North and the Lonely Hearts, 32 Tens, The Zangwills, The Covasettes, Claire L Shaw and the Jailbirds. On Sunday Goose Green will welcome Argh Kid, Only Sun, Camens, Pacific, Natalie Shay, Freeda, Edie Bens, The Music Place Choir and The Absolute Stone Roses, with a special performance by Nigel Clark from Dodgy.
Over its five years, this FREE town centre music festival has gained a reputation for great music with fabulous food and drink and as in previous years, entry to the Goose Green Summer Festival will be completely FREE of charge. This year the festival will be supporting The Children’s Adventure Farm Trust (CAFT). As well as live music from 12-8pm on both days, there will be fabulous food and drink from the Goose Green bars and restaurants and throughout both days there will be children’s entertainment, starting at midday on Saturday and 11am on Sunday.
Kate Gerbich, Events and Communications Manager for Altrincham Unlimited said: “Last year’s Goose Green Festival was a huge success, with a record-breaking day on the Saturday with over 4,650 visitors enjoying the festival throughout the course of the day. A number of venues also reported record trading days and the feedback from businesses and visitors was positive. We’re really looking forward to once again producing one of the key events in Altrincham’s calendar”. Jon Belfield, Artistic Director said: “I’ve loved being part of the Goose Green Festival over the years and I’m pleased with this year’s line-up which combines some familiar faces with some which will be new to the Altrincham audience. The bands will be playing a great mix of original material and covers so there’ll be something for everyone. The Goose Green Festival has acquired a really strong name, and we’re looking forward to another fantastic bank holiday event.”
