Head for the Hills is fast approaching; a stellar line up of artists including Maximo Park, Beth Orton, The Stranglers, Neville Staple Band and Alexis Taylor will head to Ramsbottom to play the festival season’s final fling.
A fun, family friendly festival also featuring innovative creative art performances and incredible home-grown talent including Dutch Uncles, and Larkins.
Indie rock quartet Maximo Park bag the Friday opening night headline slot and will get the three-day festival off to a flying start before heading out on their own European tour. Saturday will see the inimitable Beth Orton take to the stage for her much-anticipated headline set, whilst legendary new wave punk band, The Stranglers, will close the festival in style with the final headline show of the weekend straight off the back of their own UK headline tour.
Weekend performances not to be missed include Manchester’s Dutch Uncles, and Ska legends, the Neville Staple Band, who are both renowned for their exciting live shows. Other acts featured on the festival’s highly anticipated line up are Alexis Taylor, the co-founder of Grammy-nominated pop group Hot Chip, the riotous six-piece indie-folk party band Skinny Lister, local funk infused pop and indie band Larkins, and the grunge-indie band Hawk.
Head for the Hills will also play host to a brilliant performing arts and theatre programme, with highlights including acrobatic storytelling from Pif-Paf Theatre, an interactive retro cinema experience hosted by Ecstatic Cinema, and a theatrical performance of The Adventure of Snigel by Caroline Bowditch. Other standouts throughout the weekend include the intriguing installations of The Umbrella Tree by Rag and Bone, and the especially commissioned Between Stillness and Storm by Aidan Moesby.
For the younger festival goers, the multi award-winning theatre company Fine Chisel, will bring their squawking adventure Flit, Flap and Fly to the festival alongside the Gypsy Caravan Theatre, who will bring children’s stories and dreams to life through their original shows with scripts, set designs and puppets.
