The Ashford Create Music Festival line up has been announced and this year there is even more reason to celebrate – Create is now 18 years old! That’s right, for the last 18 years the well-loved family friendly festival has nurtured and showcased the very best of young local and regional talent.
Over the years Create has steadily grown in size and this year will boast an amazing four live music stages, a mix of arts and crafts market stalls, fun street performers, children’s rides, a beer tent, food outlets and as always – that all important summer festival vibe!
Out of the hundreds of acts and bands that applied to play this year, we can finally unveil the line up – although the main headline acts for each stage are still under wraps for now!
Last year, more than 12,000 people poured through the gates to enjoy the sensational music and sunshine, and now, through the continued support by Ashford Borough Council, local businesses and sponsors, Create is heading towards its biggest ever year, on Sunday, July 27th.
We’re delighted to announce that Nizlopi are to headline Create Festival! Known and much loved for their energetic and often improvised shows, the duo will be a must see this July at Victoria Park!
The Intermission Project will be playing the main stage. Formed by Jim Rubadaka and Alex Stevens, the two talented singer-songwriters combined forces to create wonderfully crafted songs wise beyond their years. The 19 year olds have mixed in acoustic, folk and soul and have immediately captivated an audience. Last year the duo welcomed drummer Charlie Campbell and released their debut EP Sorry which has been picked up by BBC Introducing and played in BBC local radio all across the country. Don’t miss their performance at Create Festival.
The Create Saturday Night Sound Check in Association with Right Track Music is back! This year, Toploader will take to our stage the night before Create Festival in this special one-off ticket only event July 26th, with support coming from James Kirby and Pip Bowers & The Family Bones.
Toploader’s live career began playing with Coldplay and Muse in small venues across the UK. They later went on to headline summer festivals and became the last British band to play the original Wembley Stadium.
Joseph Washbourn (vocals & keys), Dan Hipgrave (guitar), Matt Knight (bass) and Rob Green (drums), returned in 2011 from an eight year hiatus with third studio album ‘Only Human’, produced by Danton Supple (Morrissey and Coldplay) to rave reviews.
