Go North West Young Fan!

Jun 9, 2024

Northgate Folk Festival, the North West’s leading experimental and contemporary folk all-dayer returns on 24.8.24. Nestled within the city’s Roman Walls,  hosted at the splendid Alexander’s venue in Chester, the festival will once again play host to the new wave of artists forging their own paths in traditional music. Featuring:

Stick In The Wheel ✶ Nick Hart ✶ Frankie Archer ✶ Goblin Band ✶ Mary Elizabeth Remington ✶ Craven ✶ Brown Wimpenny ✶ Caitlin Gilligan ✶ Seb Stone ✶ Rosie Brownhill ✶ Molly No-Mates ✶ Kinnerton Morris Men ✶ Clerical Error ✶ Stone Club DJs

Known for their intense live shows exploring the raw holler of folk, electronica, spoken word and intricate dobro guitar, Stick In The Wheel are this year’s radical and razor-sharp headliners.

Raw headliners, Stick in The Wheel. 

They join award-winning multi-instrumentalist Nick Hart, innovative electrofolk artist Frankie Archer, Massachusetts’ enchanting Mary Elizabeth Remington, unstoppable queer folk collective Goblin Band, and many more.

Celebrating “the enigmatic relationship between ancient stone monuments, folklore and music”, Stone Club will soundtrack the day.

Festivalgoers can also expect impressive dance displays from Bristol’s premier drag king Molly dancing team Molly No-Mates, Kinnerton Morris Men and Clerical Error Morris Dancers.
