Following the success of its first two years, The Blackthorn Music Festival is once again being staged to give a fantastic weekend of top entertainment from some of the best tribute acts, as well as the very best emerging acts, musicians and artists. This year we are delighted to be working with the multi award wining music and social enterprise charity Blastbeat Education UK ( reg UK charity no 1136121). Through the work of Blastbeat we are even more able to give a great platform and a variety of stages to showcase their talents. This will be to music industry professionals and thousands of fun loving music fans and festival goers like you. Everyone will enjoy a great weekend in this exceptional boutique festival. Set in some of the most beautiful scenery in England, yet only 10 minutes drive from Stockport or 30 minutes from Manchester. This is an exceptional music festival for everyone regardless of age, situated overlooking Etherow Country Park in the beautiful setting of Whitebottom Farm. We are providing a safe and very friendly atmosphere to listen to the best music, socialise and camp while enjoying great music, mouth-watering food, and making new friends with cool, good people and stunning surroundings.
