About RIVFEST

RivFest will be returning with their biggest music festival yet, a three-day weekender across Fri 5th – Sun 7th Aug 2022, featuring some of the hottest upcoming acts and festival mainstays performing over the weekend.

RivFest takes place live at Golden Square in Warrington’s town centre. Standing capacity of 3,000 with plenty of food and drink outlets for you to enjoy.

We’re so excited to reveal the line-up for this year’s RivFest Weekender.

Friday sees the return of Graeme Park bringing the party vibes to the square. He was just SO good last year we had to welcome him back!

On Saturday we’re so pleased to have The Lottery Winners headlining for us. They’ll be joined by King No-One, Master Peace, Lauran Hibberd, Courting, Home Counties, swim school, Malady, Sad Boys Club and iamkyami. We’ve also got a couple more names to announce so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Sunday is our free entry day, and this year we’re delighted to be headlined by The Zangwills! Also on the Sunday you can see Room D, Cathy Jain, The Motive, Pray for Mojo, Passionflower, Queen Cult, sorebae, Urbanparcs, Foxglove, Ask Elliot, Nineties, Fauna, Stan Buckroyd, Tay Temple and John Denton Music!

Tickets are just £15 for Friday and £20 for Saturday, and all funds raised go to The River Reeves Foundation.

The charity festival, founded by The River Reeves Foundation, launched after River and his band Viola Beach along with their manager Craig Tarry tragically died in a car accident in Sweden in 2016.

RivFest is one of the many fundraising outlets for The River Reeves Foundation, an arts charity which aims to provide bursaries and support for disadvantaged young people, helping them create successful futures within the performing and visual arts. Many of the local acts at RIVFEST have previously been recipients of the RRF’s bursaries, and the festival aims to inspire even more young people from the area to pick up a musical instrument, paintbrush, or camera.

Previous acts to perform at RivFest have included Graeme Park, Everything Everything, Eliza & The Bear, Pizzagirl, Abi Rose Kelly, Billy Bragg, Fickle Friends, The K’s, Maximo Park, Average Sex and The Lottery Winners. See 2021 line-up here.
