Six local bands set to rock Haigh Fest's return
Tuesday 30th May, 2017

Festival season is just around the corner and the buzz of live music and local talent is returning to Wigan at Haigh Woodland Park this June!

With excitement building, the Haigh Fest Rewind 2017 line-up can now be revealed, bringing a high quality mix of rock, indie, folk and pop music from six of Wigan Borough’s top unsigned bands on Saturday 17th June.

A panel of three judges narrowed down over 50 bands and artists to create six exciting sets for the much anticipated return to Haigh Fest’s roots, kicking off with Ashton band and Haigh Fest regulars SecondSon, with the Lines, The Quaintest Show on Earth, The Stetsons Electric and Inside View all performing before headliners the Relays close the show.

So here they are:

Second Son
Haigh Fest favourites who’ll rock the opening set!

The Lines
Cool and confident, these indie rockers from Billinge come with pedigree, having worked with Wigan music legend John Kettle.

The Quaintest Show on Earth
Born entertainers and masters of the ukulele… folk will love it!

The Stetsons Electric
The definition of rock and roll with a modern, almost punk-pop undertone and witty lyrics!

Inside View
Jet-setting pop rockers from Winstanley, celebrating their 10-year anniversary.

The Relays
Crisp and sharp sounds ready to release new material to their ‘legendary home crowd’.

Tickets are on sale now at boxoffice.wlct.org or by calling 01942 828508. Tickets are limited with a capacity of 1,000 in the events space near the Kitchen Courtyard.

The festival starts at 1.00pm on Saturday 17th June, with gates open from 11.30am.
