‘Made in Manchester’… is coming to Bolton Arena!

USN Bolton Arena are delighted to announce that the ‘Made in Manchester’ Festival is coming to town this summer in partnership with pitch productions.

The music festival will take place on Saturday 29th June from 2pm until 11pm.

The stage will be set on the large grassed outdoor area at Bolton Arena and will feature some of the best 80’s and 90’s Manchester cover bands including:

These Smiths

These Smiths are the UK’s best tribute to The Smiths and Morrissey. The band are from The Smith’s home city of Manchester. Formed shortly after their lead singer appeared on the UK television show Stars In Their Eyes, they are renowned as the closest sounding tribute to the real thing. A must see for fans of The Smiths and Morrissey.

Happy Mondaze

The No.1 Happy Mondays tribute band, come and see for yourself.

Reliving the heady Madchester vibes of the infamous Hacienda, Happy Mondaze bring you the cult classics and best-selling hits of Manchester’s number one baggy band the Happy Mondays.

Never before has a tribute band captured the true essence of the originals with such dedication to re-creating these revolutionary tracks. Guaranteeing a party like no other, the Mondaze promise to transport you back to Manchester’s musical heyday and the birth of rave culture. Sing along with Shaun (Marc), Bez (Peter) and the band to smash hits such as Step On, Kinky Afro, Wrote For Luck and many many more as the Mondaze vow to amaze, entertain and leave you crying out for an encore!

Resurrection Stone Roses tribute

Resurrection were formed in 1998 & are based in Glasgow, Scotland. The most successful & first tribute to The Stone Roses north of the border & the closest band to create the recorded sound of the Roses 88-90 period when the band were at their peak. Their success made them not only the best Stone Roses tribute around, but one of Scotland’s most seen bands in their first 3yrs under another title. Their success was so huge, that a Stone Roses best of album which Silvertone released (years before) charted in the top 20 album sales during Resurrection’s peak.

The Oasis Experience

The Oasis Experience bring you exactly that, the experience of actually being at an Oasis gig, a superb layer of soundscape recreation by incredibly talented musicians with breathtaking vocal similarity which will have you wondering if its live or a recording.

The day wouldn’t be complete without showcasing local bands and musicians, lookout for announcements in the coming months.
