We’re delighted to announce our entertainment line-up for 2016.
Friday evening - Venus Rising
Up and coming local folk rockers Venus Rising are delighted to be invited back to Knutsford Beer Festival to play a semi-acoustic set!
They thoroughly enjoyed playing at last year's event, having been selected in a competition by Mark Radcliffe and Paul Langley.
Their debut 2015 single 'Lazy Daze' (Global Path Records) was aired by Tom Robinson on the BBC 6 Music Introducing Mixtape, and on the BBC 6 Music Tom Robinson show, Kim Wilde tweeted that she loves the track, and Mr Radcliffe said after last year's festie, 'If you like your folk music, have a good listen to Venus Rising.'
They've shared lineups with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Paul Carrack, Midge Ure, Paul Young, Galleon Blast and more, and supported Glen Tilbrook. With a chilled second single 'Woodlight' out soon, their debut album almost ready, rave
reviews of their music and live gigs, and a fan base from over 45 countries on Facebook, things are certainly looking good for the band!
Named in support of The Venus Project's global solutions for peace, sustainability, abundance etc, they like to share a message of fun and positive change! www.facebook.com/venusrisinginfo
