Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival Announces Saturday Night Headliners

Middlewich Town Council announces Toyah Willcox and China Crisis as Saturday Night Headliners for the 30th Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival.

Middlewich Town Council are delighted to announce this year’s Saturday Night headline artists for 2020s Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival.

Returning for its 30th year, the festival is running for five days from Wednesday 17th through to Sunday 21st June.

This year’s Saturday Night concert is an 80s party night, staring two of the most popular artists in 80s music plus local electronica tribute band Electro 80s.

The concert stars 80s punk princess Toyah Willcox who will be delivering a lively and energetic concert with her full live electric band.

Joining Toyah on Saturday Night is China Crisis, an English pop/rock band formed in Kirkby in 1979. China Crisis are still selling out shows today throughout the UK as well as in the US, Canada, Holland, the Philippines and elsewhere.

Kicking off ther party in style, Electro 80s will be rocking the main stage with an 80s disco and light display, a first for the festival. You can preview this fantastic display on the 28th February at our warm-up event at Victoria Hall. Get tickets for this here: https://www.middlewichfabfestival.co.uk/fab-tickets/

Event organisers are working hard to make sure this year is the best yet as we celebrate 30 years of this great community festival.

Following feedback from visitors in previous years, a few small changes have been made to secure the future of the festival.

Jonathan Parry, Middlewich Town Councillor said “Middlewich Folk and Boat Festival wants to deliver the best festival for the people of Middlewich. To achieve this, we need to attract the best possible artists. Last year resulted in a loss due to fact the income didn’t cover the costs.

“This year we aim to deliver a bigger and better festival with great acts. This means we must start charging for the Saturday night concert.

“We cannot continue running at a loss as it jeopardises the future of the festival. By implementing a very fair and nominal charge for the Saturday, it secures the future of Folk and Boat and allows us to give you a very enjoyable weekend.

“Sunday remains free of charge, as does Saturday daytime from 11am through to 4pm!”

Early bird tickets for the Saturday night concert are now for sale on our website: https://www.middlewichfabfestival.co.uk/fab-tickets/ These tickets are limited so get yours now! Residents tickets are back by popular demand and will be released later next week.
