Saddleworth Wellifest 2021

Wellifest 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID19 pandemic.

The 2021 event will take place on Saturday 26th June 2021

This music festival is organised by the Rotary club and raises funds for local charities

The line up of acts that were set to perform in 2020 was going to be perhaps the most exciting line up yet! With the Manchester Ska Foundation scheduled to headline the event, joined by local indie rock band Sterohaze and Jam tribute band ‘The Jam Restart’, Uncle Buck and the Cotton Famine Road, and the awesome Elmo Ashall-Kelly, who is an incredibly talented singer-songwriter.

Hopefully, 2021 will be just as exciting with many of these acts signing up already.

 The full line up can be found at the festival website line up page.

There will be entertainment provided for all ages, two bars including a gin and rum bar and a variety of food outlets including the awesome Saddleworth Pie Company,  Stone Baked Pizza,  Greek Street Food and the fabulous  Grandpa Greene’s Ice Cream Parlour!

Gates open at 2.30pm, and the music runs from 3.30pm until 9.30pm.

Tickets cost £15 for adults (over 12 years), £5 for children (5-12 years), and children under five go free. A family ticket (2 Adults and 2 Children) costs £35. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets can be bought online at the wellifest ticket page, or at the Royal George in Greenfield, The Clarence, Well-i-hole Farm and Saddleworth Museum.

Tickets will also be available on the day of the event from the ticket desk at the gate, these tickets are priced at £15 for adults (over 12 years), £5 for children (5-12 years), and children under 5 years go free.

Though if you fancy it for the full festival experience, there is camping available at the absolutely fantastic Well-i-Hole Farm campsite.
