Everything Everything, Graeme Park, and Abi Rose Kelly are set to headline RivFest 2021 which returns to Warrington from the 6 – 8 August.  

Now firmly established as one of the key fixtures in the region, the charity festival returns to the 3,000 capacity Old Market Square.

RivFest is presented by The River Reeves Foundation, an arts charity launched in 2016 following the tragic deaths of River, his band Viola Beach and their manager, Craig Tarry. The 2021 event is also a celebration marking five years since Viola Beach posthumously reached number one in the UK Albums chart. 

Also joining the Rivfest line up is Eliza & The Bear, Pizzagirl, and Orchards, plus many more. The full line up so far can be viewed below.  

Many of the local acts on this year’s line-up have been awarded bursaries from the River Reeves Foundation. Over the next 12 months, the charity will award another 50 grants of up to £500 to support young people and those from disadvantaged backgrounds achieve their artistic ambitions. 

 Tickets go on sale on Friday 23 April, at 12pm, via Culture Warrington. Tickets are priced at £10 Friday / £20 Saturday / free Sunday / £25 weekend
