Line-up for Create Festival 2016

Create Tree LogoThe line-up for Create Music Festival’s 21st Birthday has been announced, although the headliners are still being kept under wraps!

On Saturday 23rd July, Victoria Park will once again host one of the South East’s biggest free music festivals, and has lined up a packed programme of music indulgence with over 40 local, talented bands, acts, solo performers, choirs and DJ’s performing across the day.

The Create Main Stage, sponsored by Ashford College, includes popular local favourites Riskee & The Ridicule, Old Town Souls and Slam Cartel, all supported by Ashford College Music Technology students working behind the scenes.

The brand new Fountain Stage sponsored by Right Track Music will once again showcase a whole host of up and coming musicians that emerge from the school, as well as community groups, choirs and young local talent.

Ashford’s premier music and arts venue, Revelation St Mary’s, has programmed an eclectic mix of singer-songwriters, and young folk and indie acts.

Fans will have noticed that announcements are yet to be made for the legendary Create DJ stage, but can rest assured that an awesome line up will be laying down the very best of house, EDM and club anthems.

Following on from last year’s memorable performance from Adam Ant, the festival is still keeping all the headline acts of each stage close to its chest, but has teased all music fans that they are in for an equally impressive, musical treat for this year!

What’s more, Create will be hosting two warm-up gigs at Revelation St Mary’s in the run-up to the festival with both local bands and high-profile acts, to build up the summer buzz to the big day.

Create Festival Organiser Chris Dixon says: “We are so happy with the line-up so far, and we were blown away with the huge amount of applications we received to play at this year’s festival. All entries were judged by a panel of music experts including radio DJ’s, creative directors, venue managers and music promoters, all of which were very impressed by the high standard of acts.

“With only around 40 slots available on the day, it was a tough decision selecting the acts and getting the mix right. However, we are committed to keeping all the applicants on file to see whether we can help get them high profile support slots at St Mary’s, programmed in on the Town Centre bandstand and other opportunities.

“We have been impressed with the outstanding response from our followers on social media with many people commenting on how good this year looks!  We can’t wait to tell you who our headliners are for each stage.”

The line-up for Create 2016 is as follows:

Ashford College Main Stage:

Revelation Stage:
