Knutsford Music Festival

Knutsford Music Festival
Returning 2021

Knutsford Music Festival was launched in 2017 as a community music festival led by Knutsford Town Council. It brings together venues across Knutsford to create a weekend of musical events covering a range of genres. The festival ran for its third year in 2019 but unfortunately takes a break for 2020. The festival will return in Summer 2021.

A series of headline performances take place across the three days organised and ran by Knutsford Town Council. The festival also includes a wide range of fringe events hosted by local businesses across the Town Centre which run for the entire three days of the festival, plus outdoor family friendly sessions featuring live acoustic music and interactive workshops.

Broadcaster Mark Radcliffe of BBC Radio 2 and 6 teamed up with Knutsford Town Council in 2018 to present a 3-day folk event ‘Mark Radcliffe presents Folk at the Theatre’ which returned for a second successful year in 2019. The show features internationally acclaimed musicians, BBC Folk award winners. Folk at the Theatre returns in 2021 as one of the main features of the festival.

You can view gig guides online once it’s available or pick up a copy from one of your local retailers.
