The festival set up in memory of Viola Beach guitarist River Reeves is returning for a fourth year and we’re incredibly happy to announce this year’s RivFest which will be taking place at Pyramid & Parr Hall Saturday 28th September!
The K’s , Average Sex, 32 TENS, Saytr Play & Déjà Vega will be amongst over 30 artists playing across three stages, bringing together some of the best bands from Manchester, Liverpool and of course, Warrington!
Rivfest was launched in memory of the Viola Beach guitarist River Reeves by The River Reeves Foundation, set up by family and friends. Now in its fourth year the festival is working in partnership with Culture Warrington to provide a central location for the best up and coming bands and solo artists in the North West.
Look out for lots of exciting developments in coming weeks as we once again bring plenty of coverage of the day.
Spread across three stages in the Pyramid Arts Centre, Rivfest 2019 will bring more than 30 emerging Indie and Electronic artists to Warrington for an incredible day of live music.
Each year the River Reeves Charitable foundation awards scholarships bursaries to enable struggling or disadvantaged young artists to “create alternate futures”, a phrase coined by Coldplay’s Chris Martin during their 2016 Glastonbury headline set which paid tribute to Viola Beach.
Many artists from previous years have gone on to sell out their own shows and tours, support the UK’s best known artists and receive regular airplay on national radio. Discover your new favourites at Rivfest19. Hear them here first.
