ORGANISERS have praised fantastic support from across town following the success of the inaugural Knutsford Music Festival.
Dozens of acts graced more than 20 Knutsford venues on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with fringe gigs running alongside town council-organised shows.
As well as big names such as 90s Britpoppers Dodgy and award-winning Blues artist Rebecca Downes, home-grown talent was given the chance to shine from St John’s Church to Saks hairdressers.
KNUTSFORD’s inaugural music festival is taking shape, with line-ups for three town council shows confirmed and a host of venues signed up for fringe events.
NINETIES Britpop hit-makers Dodgy will front the first Knutsford Music Festival this June with a semi-acoustic headline set.
Organised by the town council, the festival is Knutsford’s first and will see events spread out over a number of venues between Friday, June 23 and Sunday, June 25.
KNUTSFORD councillors have approved plans to launch a town-wide music festival later this year.
The plans were discussed at the events committee meeting on Monday, January 23 where councillors agreed to move forward with the project which would include a ‘series of events’ across various venues.
