Richmond Live 2015

Richmond Live Best Ever By Far!

Organisers of Richmond Live are hailing the 2015 event as their best ever in seventeen years and eighteen shows!

Another beautiful summer weekend was the icing on the cake for visitors to this year’s Richmond Live music festival in Richmond North Yorkshire! Once again the crowds were treated to an eclectic mix of music acts across a wide range of genres from old favourites and new faces alike. The weekend culminated in an amazing set from headliners The Bootleg Beatles who rocked the event into the night.

There really was something there for everyone with a wider selection of retailers too offering everything from pizza, American funnel cake, crepes, burgers and sweets to temporary tattoos. The organisers had also invested heavily in new staging, lighting and marquees since the 2014 event giving the whole show a slicker and more professional look.

Event Marketing Manager Jon Naylor said “2015 has been the most amazing year for Richmond Live. I’ve been involved since 1998 and I’ve never seen anything like this! The set up week was a challenge with quite a lot of rain but the weather for the event itself was just perfect and the Bootleg Beatles completely blew us away! I’m delighted to confirm we had the biggest attendance in the events history and any profits will be used to make 2016 an even bigger and better show!”

The organisers would like to thank the hard working volunteers, acts and sponsors who helped make the event such a resounding success. It wouldn’t be possible without them.

Plans are already afoot for Richmond Live 2016 and information on dates, acts etcetera will be posted here over the coming months.

Organisers are recommending online purchase of tickets now for next year’s event with massive savings for early bird ticket purchases.

The same team are also running a new event for 2015 the Great Northern Mod & SKA Festival during the August Bank Holiday details of which can be found at www.greatnorthernfestivals.com/modska
