we're buzzin' Festival 2022

WE’RE BUZZIN’ Festival was born out of frustration of having to wait a whole twelve months between Irlam Live Festivals. WE’RE BUZZIN’ is an over 16s only, one-day festival event right at the back of the festival season, based around the ever-popular Irlam Live Friday. Indie vs Old Skool is the theme, featuring the UK’s finest indie tribute bands playing the outdoor stage and the Old Skool legends playing the Big Top. It all makes up a pretty awesome day plus we are throwing in free shuttle buses from three pick-up points in Irlam and Cadishead… AND BACK!!!!   Check this for a line-up. xx
