In July 2018 we held our first festival.
It started off as a gin tasting afternoon with an acoustic singer, but quickly grew into Ribble Valley Gin and Music Festival, with a stage, 6 great bands, fantastic food, a funfair and over 100 Gins.
Our aim for the festival is to create a live music event that all the family can enjoy.
We will be back in 2019 Re-branded as Ribble Valley Live Music Festival with even more Great Live Music, great food, amusements for the kids, not so many gins but still a healthy selection.
The Festival will now be a 2 day Festival on 5th and 6th July 2019

With their high energy show, this tribute band will perform all the biggest hits complete with impressive visuals and plenty of audience interactive fun! See A Touch of Little Mix Here
3.45pm-5.00pm The Shivers. As soon as we watched the Shivers perform, we knew we had to get them to play at the Festival and we’re are sure you’ll agree. A five piece from Rawtenstall covering an eclectic array from Cranberries, Pink, No Doubt, Bowie, Muse, Alanis Morissette and many more. One of the only bands I know that put their rehearsals on social media but still very much worth a listen, click here to see
5.45pm-6.45 pm Good Foxy. We tried to get Good Foxy for the festival last year, but they were booked up soilid. Hardly surprising as they are probably one of the North West’s most wanted acts. Supporting established acts like Status Quo, Big Country, and The Doors Alive has helped raise awareness of the band.
7.30pm-8.15pm Paris Taylor. She’s Back! The most requested person to return ( apart from Pizza guy obviously) The fantastic Paris Taylor.
9.00pm-11.00pm The Kopycat Killers. “As the festival director for Tribfest I try and get around the site and watch a few songs from each band to get a feel for them. However, on this occasion I was drawn into the Kopycat Killers from their very first song. What a band. They blew Tribfest 2018 apart! The whole band had so much energy and the likeness in voice and style to the original band is incredible…a totally magnificent performance, a truly remarkable performance”
Ed Faulkner – Festival Director of TRIBFEST – The World Biggest Tribute Festival
