A new music festival is coming to Bowdon this May Bank Holiday.
‘Bowdonbury’ festival – a wordplay on the name of iconic somerset festival Glastonbury – will be host to acclaimed tribute acts in a family-friendly and socially distanced environment.
The weekend – Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th May – will take place on Bowdon Cricket, Hockey and Squash Club, and will be running at 50% capacity to ensure festival goers can enjoy the music and remain safe.
Saturday’s acts include tributes to George Michael, Diana Ross, and the Bee Gees, with support acts Le Freak and Radio Alty DJ Peter Scotson. The festival will be concluded on Sunday by award-winning artists covering Dusty Springfield and Roy Orbison.
Organiser Max Eden stated: “The new Bowdonbury Festival is being organised to raise money for the Bowdon Cricket, Hockey and Squash Club after its main fundraising event, Bowdon Bonfire, had to be cancelled last year due to restrictions.”
“When Bowdon Cricket, Hockey & Squash Club first got in touch looking to boost their fundraising efforts, I wanted to try and help wherever possible to ensure this fantastic sports club continues to stay open and be a part of our community.”
Tickets for Bowdonbury are available here.
