|Six local bands set to rock Haigh Fest's return
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:
Haigh Fest favourites who’ll rock the opening set!
Cool and confident, these indie rockers from Billinge come with pedigree, having worked with Wigan music legend John Kettle.
