Festival programme

There will be live music across indoor venues, a main stage sponsored by the Flying Horse Hotel near Rochdale's world famous town hall, an extended food and drink village and other entertainment.

The times are as follows:


Cost: tickets costs £6 per person in advance. On the day entry will cost £10 per person, subject to availability. We strongly advise you to book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Buying tickets:
 you'll be able to buy tickets online. Tickets are not currently on sale due to the situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) in the UK. As soon as we have more information, we'll update this page. 

You'll also be able to buy tickets in person at a number of locations in the borough.

Exchanging your ticket for a wristband:
you'll need to exchange your ticket for a wristband before you can enter the festival. These will be available from Rochdale Town Hall from 11am on the day of the festival. You can show your ticket on your mobile device or a printed copy. Your wristband will allow you unlimited re-entry to and from the site.

Wristband information: to collect your wristband you can show your tickets on your mobile device or a printed copy.
Don’t lose or try to undo your wristband. They can’t be replaced and if they’ve been tampered with you may be asked to leave the festival.

When it's being put on don’t let it hang loosely around your wrist. Keep it snug.

Don’t cut it or tamper with it. If you lose your wristband and are outside the festival site, go to Rochdale Town Hall.

If you lose your wristband and are outside the festival site, go to Rochdale Town Hall. If you’re inside the site go to the entrance and ask for help.

If an under 18 year old leaves the main stage area, re-entry will only be permitted if accompanied by a parent or guardian. Parents or guardians are responsible for the behaviour of their under 18s.
