Sun 2nd July – A Beautiful Day featuring The LevellersGet Tickets
Thu 6th July – Arcade Fire  – SOLD OUT
Fri 7th July – James  – SOLD OUT
Sat 8th July – Blossoms  – SOLD OUT

Some of the most acclaimed live artists and shows including Richard Ashcroft, Haçienda Classical, A Beautiful Day Out featuring The Levellers and The Waterboys, James, and Blossoms will be taking the helm of what has become a staple part of the summer Manchester music scene.

Obviously it goes without saying that we’re all looking forward to James and Blossoms however with already sold our shows across the UK, Arcade Fire will no down blow people minds if being seen for the first time!

Recently taking the stage at Isle of White Festival, the Canadian indie/rock band have grown popular enough to sell out arenas thanks to incessant touring and rave album reviews.

With a tracks spanning over a catalog of five albums their matured, composite sound is comparable to a mini-orchestra having a instrumental scuffle. Castlefield Bowl will be a great venue for Arcade Fire and its one we’re most certainly looking forward to. See you there for this one!

Richard Ashcroft was featured on FOTF in 2016 and the review was no less than subliminal. See the review an images here. Ashcroft is sounding and performing as good as he ever and to miss a Manchester show of his would just be embarrassing really.

No doubt there will be some younger gig-goers googling “Who are the Levellers?” however the alternative rock, folk punk, Brighton six piece are still going strong since forming in the later 80’s.  More commonly know for tracks like “What A Beautiful Day” and “Another Mans Cause” we have no doubt at all that the 9,000 strong Manchester crowd will all be singing open air roof tops.

All in all Castefield is set is set to host an amazing line up of shows this year and no matter what show you go to – they’ll all be proper cool!
