Headline Venues for KMF 19 Announced

Mar 14, 2019 by Music Fest HQ in  News

Knutsford Music Festival is back for 2019 with the Saturday night headline event taking place at a new and exciting Town Centre venue!

The festival is set to run across four days from 20 – 23 June with headline events curated by Knutsford Town Council and a selection of fringe events hosted by local businesses across town.

‘Blues Night’ will be back for its third year on Friday 21st June after two hugely successful Blues events in 2017 and 2018 headlined by Rebecca Downes and Mat Walklate & Tom Attah respectively. This year’s Blues Event will be kindly hosted at 60 King Street. The acts taking part on the night are due to be announced shortly.

An evening of Classical music will also be featured for a third year at The Courthouse Hotel, who hosted the event in 2018 and will be hosting the event once again on Sunday 23rd June. Last year’s Classical event featured Halle Brass of the world-renowned Halle Orchestra.

The Saturday Headliner will be performing at a brand new to 2019 venue, Vermilion Art Gallery’s Studio on Stanley Road Industrial Estate, just across the road from Knutsford Railway station. Festival-goers can enter the event through the legs of a giant robot (yes you read that correctly!) and proceed down a red carpet into the studio to see this year’s festival headliner.

“We are really excited to be bringing festival goers a new, very cool and unique venue for 2019” said Deputy Town Clerk, Lisa Benskin who is managing the Music Festival event, “it’s a fantastic space for live music and a real hidden Knutsford gem. It’s also great to be back at the Courthouse, a venue that was highly praised by last year’s performers and to see ever popular venue Belle Epoque involved in this year’s festival too.”

Announcements on this year’s performers will be coming very soon. For up to date information and news on the festival please visit our website at www.knutsfordmusicfestival.com or follow us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.
