The 4-day Reet Good Festival is back for 2019 and promises to be the best yet with an expanded gin bar, the return of fantastic musical talent and an even bigger family event – all for local charity, Wigan Youth Zone.

After record numbers attended the 2018 festival, the event organisers have confirmed its return in Summer 2019 at its usual site in Wigan centre at Mesnes Field, off New Market Street and behind Wigan Youth Zone on Thursday 20th – Sunday 23rd June.

As with previous years, the Reet Good Fest will offer a huge selection of bitters, ales and ciders and also herald the return of the Gin Bar – which will be extended for 2019 with a wider selection of gins and mixers than ever before.

Entertainment will once again be the focus of the Reet Good Fest, with some amazing acts confirmed for every day of the festival, supported by Wigan Pier Promotions.

The first night of the festival will be all about the 80’s, welcoming special guests for the opening session on Thursday 20th June, with a huge night of the decade’s classic hits. Ultimate 40, a big nine-piece UB40 tribute band will headline on Friday 21st along with rhythm & blues act, The Blues Engine.

The amazing entertainment continues on the Saturday of the festival with the return of the Bavarian Afternoon including live umpah band from 12pm – 6pm and then a separate evening session jam-packed with motown and soul music including performances from tribute act, The Sapphires – filling the marquee with floor-fillers from the likes of Diana Ross & The Supremes and Martha & The Vandellas. Also on Saturday, the festival will showcase a fantastic performance from popular Lionel Ritchie tribute act, Hamilton Brown.

The Reet Good event isn’t just for adults and the Sunday of the festival will be dedicated to families, offering free entry to all those aged 16 and under as well as a massive range of activities, bouncy castles and entertainment courtesy of Wigan Youth Zone’s Youth Work team.

The Sunday of the festival will also welcome a rousing performance from the Pemberton Old DW Brass Band, a historic and formidable band that’s history dates back to around 1877, who have enjoyed national success and awards aplenty over its long and illustrious career.
