ALL 3000 tickets released for the co-headline show of Cast & Space have now been claimed. In the past few minutes, the Eventbrite page shows all tickets have been taken by excited fans in just just 4 hours.
The free bank holiday weekend of live music – on Saturday 27 May and Sunday 28 May – will feature performances from dozens of up and coming bands, before the iconic stars take to the stage to headline the festival in front of more than 3,000 lucky fans.
As well as Cast and Space, Inspiral Carpets legend Clint Boon will be making a return appearance at the GS Music Festival. “We’ve played host to some great acts over the last few years, everyone from Happy Mondays and Reverend & the Makers to the Lightning Seeds,” said Ian Cox,Golden Square Centre Director “But to have giants like this – and all from our region too – is really a coup for us. This is going to be a banner year for the festival.”
“Whilst Sunday tickets have been snapped up, it’s worth remembering that the Saturday event is open to everyone, from 12noon to 11pm,” said Ian. “We know there’ll be some disappointed people who were unable to get hold of Sunday tickets, and all I can say is – don’t give up hope just yet.
“It’s been an amazing few hours and we’re all absolutely thrilled that this year’s GS Warrington Music Festival is already gearing up to be the most popular yet.”
“We have a few surprises coming up in the next few weeks, so there may yet still be a chance for people who don’t have tickets yet to come along to the show!”
Formed in the early 90s, Cast have released five studio albums, with their debut ‘All Change’ becoming the biggest-selling debut of all time for Polydor Records, and their second album Mother Nature Calls also going platinum. More than a decade after disbanding in 2001, the original line-up of John Power (guitar/vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar), Pete Wilkinson (bass) and Keith O’Neill (drums) reunited for the acclaimed ‘Troubled Times’ in 2012, and this year are going on tour to support their brand new sixth album.
Also from Liverpool, Space enjoyed huge success in the mid-90s with their singles ‘Neighbourhood’ and the bona fide classic ‘Female of the Species’ securing them chart success and ensuring albums ‘Spiders’ and 1998’s ‘Tin Planet’ were big sellers. Reuniting in 2011 after a few years apart, the band have been recording and performing at festivals across the country, and 2017 will see them on tour again – with GS Music Festival one of their first live dates of the year.
With tickets all claimed, we look forward to hearing more about the bands playing the Saturday. Submissions are still being taken up to Sunday 12th March. Find out more about applying to play Warrington Music Festival here.
