Friday 2nd June is ‘Totally Tributes’. Friday generally has an indie feel. We have the UK’s leading Oasis tribute band NOASIS headlining the main stage. Also making a return from last year is the fantastic Queen tribute ‘Now I’m Here’, plus the fab Gerry Cinnamon Experience. More acts to be named.

Saturday 3rd June is ‘Irlam Live Saturday’. We are so pleased to announce Blue as our Saturday headliner. Plus, Martin Kemp and his fantastic ‘Back To The 80s’ DJ set.  Also, the fab Mark Shaw and Then Jerico playing live. Irlam Live regulars Abz Love from 5ive and Ben form Phats & Small. We have the amazing Northern Soul Train playing a 60-minute live set and Sabrina Washington the singer from Mis-Teeq, plus more names to come.

Sunday 4th June is ‘Irlam Live Sunday’.  Playing the main stage is the one and only Heather Small with her full live band. All the hits, non-stop dancing, WOW!! what a way to close the festival. Also playing are The Lottery Winners who have just completed their first UK sell-out tour and we are so pleased to have them at Irlam Live. Tom Hindley, the voice on all the Inspiral Carpets’ hits. Toyah playing for the first time since 2018, Brutus Gold’s Love Train, plus more to be named.

Stage 2 – This has been billed as the Grassroots Stage for the past three years. But we are looking to mix things up for 2023. With a whole host of new and older talent playing, bands, singers, DJs, a theatre group, kids entertainment and speciality performers.

As well as the two stages, there is lots going on off-stage too. There is a funfair, Princesses and Superhero walkabouts, Bubbleologist, Street Ping-Pong and the fab James & Dobby are back with their awesome pop-up silent discos.
