Apollo Festival 2015 (Press Release)

Saturday June 27th 2015 sees Apollo Festival return to York.  With over 50 acts performing it promises to be the best year to date!

We are thrilled to announce that the headline main stage act this year will be legendary Manchester band INSPIRAL CARPETS.

With 2014 seeing their first album release in 20 years, performances at T in the Park, Isle of Wight Festival and a highly successful UK Tour throughout December, the alternative rock outfit are sure to top the festival in style.

Following the announcement, singer Stephen Holt said: “We're really pleased to be playing the Apollo Festival in York. We’re on good form, don’t miss out. Cool As x.” We couldn’t agree more!

We can also announce Liverpudlian act SPACE will be joining us this year. Famous for their hit singles ‘Female of the Species’ and ‘The Ballad of Tom Jones’ and celebrating their 20th anniversary last year with a UK Tour, the indie rockers are ready to entertain the crowds of Apollo Festival.

In addition; RICK WITTER DJ SET, HIJACK OSCAR, KIMBERLEY KENNEDY, THE MOTHERS, BETH MCCARTHY, RUPERT STROUD, CRYBABYCRY, HAPPY DAGGERS, RIME SUSPEX, HELLO OPERATOR are just some of the class acts confirmed to be performing this June.

The Main stage is just one of 4 incredible stages at Apollo Festival this year.

Legendary front-man Rick Witter from top Indie band Shed Seven is taking control of the Premier Stage showcasing the best in up and coming music.

ATM Stage will be showcasing the best of the up and coming acoustic talent. With Ed Sheeran one of the many success stories over the years, will you witness the next big-name star on this stage?

Don’t forget to relax and groove in the BAR 1331 tent to NORTHERN SOUL, FUNK & SOUL.

Whether you're here for the music or not, we believe Apollo Festival will have something for you. Refreshments ranging from a mini food and drink festival to Cocktails provided by York’s very own Bar 1331. We are honoured to have mouth-watering Huckleberry’ American Diner, known for their stateside delicacies and awe-inspiring food challenges as a sponsor this year too.

The theme for the festival this year is HATS. With tickets to Apollo Festival 2016 the prize for the competition winner, the crazy, strange and wacky hats are all encouraged!
