Glaston-Bury 2022 is back in town next month with stellar line-up and a new outdoor stage this year.

Every year since 2008, Glaston-Bury have been raising money for Bury Hospice and other worthy causes.

The event is set to be bigger and better every year and are inviting the people of Bury to enjoy a great day out in a safe, welcoming environment.

Organiser Chris Buckley said: “This year we are proud to dedicate the whole event to the memories of our friends Steve and Gerry Birtles who were tragically taken from us earlier this year.

“We hope that we can once again raise an amazing amount of much-needed funds for Bury Hospice and feel the wonderful community spirit which Glaston-Bury always brings to Bury.”

The festival will be taking place on the August bank holiday Monday (August 29) and performers will play live from 12.45pm until 10pm.

Around 200 performers will be playing live, and it’s expected to attract over 3,000 people into Bury.

The day is hoping to be bigger than ever featuring five outdoor stages and 15 indoor stages.

Our outdoor stage headliners include Laid (a tribute to James), Pinked Floyd (a tribute to Pink Floyd), Ace/DC (a tribute to AC/DC), Urban Theory and a tribute to Neil Diamond.

Sponsorship manager Laura Higginson said: “The support shown to us by our event sponsors has been amazing.

“We are forever in their debt for helping us to make Glaston-Bury 2022 an amazing success.

“We look forward to welcoming them as our VIPs."

This year, the festival has announced their new sponsor, The Car Co, which is looking forward to working with them.

Their marketing director Mark Forde said: “The Car Co is a family business with owners from Bury who are extremely proud of their roots.

“The business has been going for over 10 years and employ over 100 people within in the community and beyond.

“We feel the time is right to give something more back to Bury and the public in general by supporting the great event of Glaston-Bury.

“Glaston-Bury brings people from all over the UK to Bury, it manages to showcase the wonderful town and generates money for the local hospice.

“We wanted to be a part of something that not only benefits Bury but charities also.”

Operations manager Lyndsey Hopkinson said: “Once again I am overwhelmed by the support of the people of Bury as they step up year after year to become our stewards and marshals.

“Their support is invaluable in keeping our event running to the high safety standards we require, and I could not ask for a better team.”

Tickets will be available on the day from our ticket office close to the Castle Armoury and our website will now be updated regularly with the line-up details for each stage.
