A brand new music festival is coming to the West Midlands. Creation Day – in celebration of Alan McGee’s legendary Creation Records – is set to take over Wolverhampton’s West Park across the weekend of 29-30 May 2021.

The event, which is also in collaboration with the City of Wolverhampton Council and Toura Toura Festivals, will showcase a blend of some of the UK’s finest alternative exports and the country’s brightest up-and-coming bands.

Friday night headliners Happy Mondays and Sunday night festival closers Editors will be joined by the likes of Echo & The Bunnymen, Friendly Fires, Ash and Cast over the two-day event. Other acts confirmed to play include Black Grape, Glasvegas, Sleeper, Heavy Lungs and Marquis Drive.

Tickets for the event, priced at £55+BF per day, will be released in a limited capacity from Wednesday 21 October onwards.

Speaking about the inaugural Creation Day Festival, Alan McGee said: “I’m looking forward to this one, some of the best old bands with some of the best new bands. I can’t wait to come and bring it all to Wolverhampton. Creation Day is the first time we have done anything like this since doing it for the kids. Hopefully we can do this every year.”
