TYLDESLEY’S leading music festival returns with a packed line-up of top local talent later this month.
Cadence Festival, which is being staged in association with Manchester’s Longevity Records, sees a host of acts playing for free in various venues spread around the town on Friday and Saturday, June 15 and 16.
The main stage will be situated in Market Square on Saturday afternoon, with the headlining acts including Tom Hingley and the Lovers, featuring the former Inspiral Carpets front man, local band The Lottery Winners and David Julien from BBC1 show The Voice.
The other acts taking to the stage including indie-reggae act Jeremiah Ferrari, precocious teenage rockers Everyday Goldfish and Super 8 Cynics, with extra entertainment provided by the Nowt2Do dancers.
The festival kicks off on the Friday with live music and DJs spread across four venues in the town. Highlights include an open mic night at The Queens and an evening of guitar music and poetry at The Half Moon.
There is even more going on for the Saturday, with the Indiebus stage in The Queens putting on a packed line-up of six bands, Manchester acoustic guitarist Danny Mahon headlining in The Railway and further music in The Black Horse and The Mort Arms.
There will also be a night of stand-up comedy in The Half Moon and an afternoon of poetry, called Write Out Loud, in the Simply Tasty cafe.
Bar M is also getting in on the act with guest DJ sets on both nights of the festival.
