Saddleworth Wellifest 2021

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

Set at the stunning Well-i-Hole Farm, this annual music festival is organised by the Rotary club to raise funds for local charities. 

After a year of lockdown and cancelled Saddleworth events, Wellifest 2021 is set to be the highlight of the year, and this years’ line up is going to be perhaps the most exciting yet! Tickets are selling fast!

The gates open at 2pm and the first band on stage will be the The Remedy at 3pm. Headline act ‘Beyond Madness’ will close the event as the last band on stage at 8.30pm. Performing throughout the day will be  local indie rock band Sterohaze, Simply Red tribute band ‘Andy Lee Stars’, Uncle Buck, Cotton Famine Road, Phil Mcardle, Liberty Eaton, The Microdotts, and Aleya Mae.

The amazingly talented local singer-songwriter Elmo Ashall-Kelly will also be performing, check out Elmo in the video below.

More details on 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!

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.

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.

The festival site is about a fifteen-minute walk from Greenfield Station, and free parking is available close by if you are travelling by car.

Pots & Pans Cottage has already been booked up for this weekend, but if you fancy the full festival experience there is camping available at the fabulous Well-i-Hole Farm campsite. This wonderful campsite is literally next door to the festival and you’d be hard pushed to camp anywhere more beautiful.  The farm can cater for tents, motorhomes, trailer tents and caravans, and they have a super on-site shop selling a wide array of local produce. For more information visit their website Well-i-Hole farm campsite.

Full details about the festival can be found at the wellifest website.
