Confessional Festival

CONFESSIONAL FESTIVAL RETURNS TO BLACKBURN, Transforming Historic Blackburn Cinema into a Music and Arts Urban Junkyard Extravaganza!

Friday's line-up is stacked with huge names including Radio 1 played Scottish soul artist, Brooke Combe and sci fi inspired heavy rockers Calva Louise. Other names on the bill include Halifax based indie-pop band Wax Tree Cast; Nottingham rockers on the rise Cumcamaras and Accrington based The Rafters.

Saturday's line up is equally as exciting seeing acts such as Burnley band GOA EXPRESS; London based up-and-comer Abbie Ozard and Blackburn's own Jacob Reddy grace the stage, along with a headlining set from The Incredible Seven Hip Hop & R&B Band.

The Exchange, a grade 2 listed former cinema adorned with magnificent stained-glass windows, serves as the perfect backdrop for the festival. The theme for this year's event is Urban Junkyard, the juxtaposition of which against the venue's historical charm creates an atmosphere that is sure to be both mesmerising and unforgettable.

This is a Weekend Ticket 8th Sept 6pm-12am and 9th Sept 2pm-12am
Suitable for all - Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult
