Cotton Clouds returns to the picturesque Oldham countryside

Cotton Clouds

Cotton Clouds returns for the third time with their biggest line up to date.

Taking place across two days, 16th -17th August, against the breathtaking views of the Peak District National Park, the family friendly festival once again promises an eclectic mix of musical talent.

Friday night sees Saddleworth welcome music royalty as Friday headliners Peter Hook and The Light take to the main stage, with the founding member of both Joy Division and New Order’s back catalogue delivering some classics. 

Joining Hooky on the bill are “Heavyweight Champions” Reverend and The Makers, Ash, The Charlatans’ front man Tim Burgess, The Wailers and loads more.

There will also be performances from XS Manchester New Music favourites Callow Youth, Saytr Play, Liines and Dirty Laces. 

Alongside the music, festival goers can enjoy foodie treats, bars, a real ale tent, and for the very first time, a pop up trader’s market.

There’s enough to keep the kids happy too, with arts and crafts, an evening carnival, music robots, and a ‘kiddies rave’. 

Listen to Clint Boon during XS Festival Week 1st - 5th July for your chance to be at Cotton Clouds!
