THE first Warrington FamFest has revealed a brilliant line-up of music to entertain festival goers descending on the family-friendly event next month (August).
The festival – coming to Orford Jubilee Park in Warrington on Saturday and Sunday August 11-12 – is a fantastic new addition to the regions cultural calendar.
And Warrington’s own music star Mo Jamil, winner of The Voice in 2017, will make a special guest appearance on Saturday August 11.
The former hotel worker joined the sixth series of the TV competition after being invited to audition by producers who spotted him singing at an open mic night.
He was mentored by American singer and actress Jennifer Hudson, and was crowned winner after a hotly-contested live final where he went head-to-head with Welsh duo into The Ark for the prestigious title and a recording contract.
Mo Jamil will appear as part of a packed programme on the main stage throughout the festival weekend, with entertainment from some of the World’s Best tribute acts paying homage to stars like Little Mix, Michael Jackson and Ariana Grande.
Saturday, August 11 sees live performances celebrating the music of Bruno Mars, Madonna, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Will Smith, Michael Jackson and Ariana Grande.
And the music continues throughout the day on Sunday, August 12 with all the hits from Little Mix (Little Fix – winners of the 2017 National Tribute Music Awards) Katy Perry, Jesse J, Coldplay, Kaiser Chiefs, Lionel Ritchie, Taylor Swift, Jess Glynne, George Michael and Take That.
FamFest Warrington is the brainchild of Wire FM founder Pete Pinnington, and promises a weekend of amazing activities and events for all the family.
The festival runs from 11am to 10pm on both Saturday and Sunday, and along with the busy music line-up there will also be live shows and performances by Beauty & The Beast, The Minions, Mister Maker and Basil Brush.
