Utilita Creation Day Festival will be bringing two days of live music to Wolverhampton’s West Park on the 28th and 29th May 2022.
The festival has today (Thursday 9th September) confirmed its line-up for the 2022 event, including Saturday headline act IDLES and Sunday night headliners Happy Mondays.
The festival's line-up also includes Echo & The Bunnymen, Friendly Fires, ASH, CAST, The Wedding Present, Glasvegas, Sleeper, Echobelly, The Illicits, The Clockworks, Shambolics and many more.
As an Utilita Creation Day Festival exclusive, Shaun Ryder is confirmed to be performing two sets over the weekend. In what will be a festival first for the Happy Mondays’ main-man, Shaun will also be warming up for the Sunday headliners with a set from his indie-dance groovesters: Black Grape, earlier in the day.
Exclusively curated by the legendary Alan McGee, and presented in a joint collaboration between The City of Wolverhampton Council and Toura Toura Festivals, the first Utilita Creation Day Festival is intended as a celebration of the legendary Creation Records label and its legacy.
Formed in 1983, the label rapidly became one of the most iconic of the 80s and 90s indie scene, with Alan introducing major acts to the world including Primal Scream, The Jesus & Mary Chain and Oasis. With acts handpicked by McGee himself; from the classic bands who have soundtracked his career, to the freshest new sounds inspiring him in the here-and-now, Creation Day promises to be an unmissable new venture from the music mogul.
Speaking about the inaugural Utilita Creation Day Festival, Alan McGee says:
"I'm very pleased to be asked again by the City of Wolverhampton Council & Toura Toura Festivals to curate the Utilita Creation Day Festival 2022. It's great to see that most of the bands that missed out on playing due to covid restrictions this year, have all agreed to come back and play in 2022 with the fantastic addition of IDLES”
Tickets for Utilita Creation Day Festival 2022 will go on sale 10am on 10th September 2021.
