Something for everyone at 2012 Warrington Music Festival
9:20am Friday 13th July 2012 in News
THE town’s finest musical talents will come together on Saturday for the annual Warrington Music Festival.
And with four stages in three town centre venues, the event looks set to be the biggest and best yet.
Organisers were forced into an eleventh hour move from the planned Bank Park stage to Queen’s Gardens due to wet conditions but there is still plenty to enjoy.
The Queen’s Gardens event features two stages between noon and 7.30pm with Birchwood band Conquer Rio headlining the Plugged In stage.
This is an alcohol-free event and will feature under 18s performers on two separate stages.
There will also be dance displays and workshops taking place, BMX skate displays and a climbing wall.
The Golden Square Stage runs from noon until 11pm and will feature bands over the age of 18 from Warrington and the surrounding area.
Food and drink will be on sale throughout the day and among the performers will be Exile Parade – set to head off on a tour of China next week.
The Warrington Market/ Youth Cafe stage runs from noon until 9pm and features a mix of music for all ages until 3pm followed by an acoustic stage until 7pm.
Great Sankey garage rock band White Vinyl will be lining up alongside bands from across the town on the Golden Square stage at 2.30pm.
Daniel Rimmer, lead vocalist, said: “It’s always a massive honour to be asked to play in your home town, and the music festival is a credit to Warrington.
“We are all properly excited to get up on that stage and can’t wait to just go for it!”
Tainted Memories, a band comprising Lymm High Students Rory Boyle, Sam Ward, Brody Cook and Matt Davies, will be hoping to continue recent success when they take to the Plugged In stage.
They won a recording session in a Facebook competition.
