Happy Mondays headline BL9

Happy Mondays and Razorlight are to headline the BL9 Weekender.

The 'Step On' rockers and 'America' hitmakers will top the bill at Bury FC's Gigg Lane ground over the weekend of 13-14 June, while a host of other performers, including Diversity, James Arthur, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Farm, Peter Hook and the Light, Finley Quaye, Tinchy Stryder and Coolio will also take to the main stage at the event.

The main stage will be on the pitch at the ground, while there will also be a second stage, whose line-up has yet to be announced.

Organisers are hopeful BL9 - which is open to under 18s on the Sunday - will boost the local community.

Event organiser Andrew Brooks said: "Football clubs all over the UK offer the perfect infrastructure for a festival and, rather than being in remote villages, they are easily accessible and perfect for our needs.

"Our ambition is to work with crew and suppliers from the local area to demonstrate that Bury FC caters for music and football fans alike, creating an unmissable event."

Tickets are on sale now at www.bl9weekender.co.uk with a special Early Bird price starting at £35 per day (adults) or £60 for the whole weekend.
