Announcing the return of live music in emphatic style – SPIKE ISLAND – THE RESURRECTION – will take place this Saturday (24th July).
One of the first major music events to take place in post-lockdown Britain, Spike Island: The Resurrection will host a day of celebrations in commemoration of the 30th Anniversary of the Stone Roses’ era-defining gig at Spike Island, Widnes.
As well as re-opening the original site to music fans for the very first time since that historic gig in 1990, the event is also on course to break records as the biggest tribute-themed festival the world has ever seen!
With a headline set by THE CLONE ROSES (the UK’s No.1 tribute to The Stone Roses), the celebratory music festival will aim to re-capture the sights, sounds and atmosphere of what is widely considered as one of the greatest shows ever. The event will also see performances from other top-tier tribute acts including: OAS-IS, THE SMITHS LTD, HAPPY MONDAZE, THE JAMES EXPERIENCE, and TRUE ORDER; plus a number of original faces from the iconic Madchester scene including BEZ (Happy Mondays), CLINT BOON (Inspiral Carpets), ANDY (808 STATE), and MC TUNES (Dust Junkys).
