better than ever.

With three days of live music spread across four stages, the not-for-profit festival is returning to Buxworth from September 23 – 25, 2016.

The festival, which was last held in 2014, will raise money for the installation of life-saving automated external defibrillators (AEDs) within the local area, along with training for two community members per AED.

Headliners include chart-topping British indie band The Farm, along with up-and-coming acts such as Sunderland’s Frankie & the Heartstrings, Sugarmen from Liverpool and Riding The Low, the band of English film actor Paddy Considine.

There will be a tent for High Peak musicians - featuring amongst others, Glossop favourite Steve Roberts.

Weekend tickets cost just £50 and include three-nights’ camping on-site at Clough Head Farm, Buxworth. To buy tickets, visit www.
