Colne Festival 2014 The cut-off date for the Early Booking Offer is 5pm on Friday, June 20th. So if you want to save yourself £22 and see some of the best Blues talent from this country, Europe and America, then you had better be quick!

These Blues musicians – and hundreds more – will be performing throughout the four day event this August Bank Holiday weekend.


 Over the last two decades the Festival has grown in size and popularity with the amount of people who travel from the length and breadth of the UK, as well as Europe and the USA, to this part of Lancashire to listen to every kind of Blues music.

 The calibre of the Festival was recognised last year when it was declared the Best Blues Festival in the European Blues Awards 2013.

 With more than 600 artistes performing at eight official venues over four days, Colne’s Blues Festival is now a firm favourite with locals and visitors as THE place to be over the Bank Holiday weekend.

 As well as the International Stage, there will also be some popular favourites and new faces keeping the music going on the British Stage and the Acoustic Stage, as well as the five official roadhouses.

 There will be another afternoon of Jazz on the Sunday, with the Snake Davis Jazz Band heading the bill; Radio Lancashire will once again be broadcasting live from the British Stage at certain times over the weekend; There will be some fresh, new, young talent performing throughout the Festival as part of the Jessica Foxley Unsigned initiative; There will also be an outdoor stage in the town centre.

Sponsoring the Festival again this year will be Barnfield Construction, East Lancashire Community Rail Partnership, Matthew Clark Brewery, Reidys Home of Music, Radio Lancashire and a new addition, Coach House.

 Festival organiser, Alison Goode, said: “Full Festival tickets are already flying out and exceeding numbers sold at this stage in previous years.

“People come to expect a terrific line-up and we hope that’s exactly what we have provided yet again. We did want to make it extra special with it being our 25th Anniversary. So we look forward to welcoming back loyal supporters who return year after year, as well as those visiting for the first time.

“Looking at how ticket sales are going, I would recommend people get them sooner, rather than later and with just two weeks left, take advantage of the Early Booking Offer!”
