Rivfest was set up in memory of the Viola Beach guitarist River Reeves. Now in its fourth year the festival is working in partnership with Culture Warrington to provide a central location for the best up and coming bands and solo artists in the North West. Spread across three stages in the Pyramid Centre, Rivfest 2019 will bring more than 30 emerging Indie and Electronic artists to Warrington for an incredible day of live music.
Each year the River Reeves Charitable foundation awards scholarships bursaries to enable struggling or disadvantaged young artists to “create alternate futures”, a phrase coined by Coldplay’s Chris Martin during their 2016 Glastonbury headline set which paid tribute to Viola Beach.
Many previous Rivfest artists have gone on to sell out their own shows and tours, in addition to supporting some of the UK’s best known artists.
Discover your new favourites at Rivfest19. Hear them here first.
