Due to the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, a new date has now been announced for the first ever Creation Day Festival.
The festival, which had been due to take place this May, will now be entertaining music lovers over the weekend of 28th-29th May 2022 at Wolverhampton’s beautiful West Park.
Organisers are planning to include the majority of the artists from the original line-up and there will be a few new surprises too. The full line-up will be announced in the coming months.
In an official statement, the Creation Day Festival organisers say:
“As everyone knows, it’s been a really tough 12 months and although things are starting to look brighter, we’ve taken the difficult decision to move the date of Wolverhampton’s first ever Creation Day Festival so that everyone can enjoy the event safely and to the full.
Music lovers will now be able to enjoy two full days of the best live performances over the weekend of May 28 and 29 2022 in the spectacular surroundings of West Park.
We’re planning to include the majority of the artists from our original line-up and there will be a few new surprises too – all guaranteed to offer a memorable weekend in our beautiful park.”
We all need a light at the end of the tunnel, and we all deserve a chance to enjoy ourselves. For fans of great music, Creation Day Festival is that chance.”
Tickets already purchased for this year’s festival will automatically be transferred to the new date.
Partners Toura Toura Festivals and Alan McGee (founder of the iconic Creation Records label), alongside the local council, have decided to postpone Creation Day to ensure it can be enjoyed safely and to the full.
Councillor Steve Evans, cabinet member for city environment adds:
“In view of the recent announcements by the Prime Minister and taking into account his proposed roadmap of easing lockdown, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone this year’s Creation Day Festival to the same weekend next year. We know this will be disappointing news in what has been a very challenging 12 months. But due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic, we feel it is the responsible decision to take. However, I’m pleased to say that we have a new date confirmed and we are committed to making Creation Day Festival an amazing event to look forward to in 2022.”
Creation Day festival forms part of City of Wolverhampton Council’s ongoing commitment to re-light the city, help boost the local economy and offer high-profile events to attract visitors. The two-day event will be organised by the council in partnership with Toura Toura Festivals and Alan McGee.
Alan formed Creation Records in 1983 and it went on to become one of the key labels in 80s and 90s indie music. Over the years, he has worked with such major acts as Primal Scream, The Jesus and Mary Chain and Oasis.
