1771 Festival

£25 per night plus booking fee

The 8th, 9th and 10th July 2022 sees the first ever 1771 Festival - Derbyshire’s newest open-air event that celebrates an eclectic mix of musical genres. Some festivals have a great line up and others the perfect location. 1771 aims to combine the two to create a one-off atmosphere.

The inaugural 1771 Festival is an assortment of live acts in the historic yard at Cromford Mills. This unique festival promises old-school rock, indie, electro, reggae, parody and so much more to keep you singing and dancing all night long. Starting on the Friday night, we are bringing Derbyshire an unforgettable weekend of live entertainment, food, and drink.

Headline bands on the evening of Friday 8th July:
The Boo Radleys, Mark Radcliffe’s UNE, Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican, and Please Yself Skiffle Band.

Headline bands on the evening of Saturday 9th of July:
Stereo MCs, Tony Wright (Terrorvision), The In Here brothers, and Brew Droop.

Tickets for the Friday and Saturday evening headline bands must be purchased to gain access into the Mill yard. Doors open at 5.15pm and the performances start at 6pm.

From 12pm to 4pm on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th of July, all visitors to Cromford Mills can enjoy great sounds from a line-up of local artists. The weekend afternoon performances are free to watch.

There are a limited number of early release tickets for the evening shows on Friday and Saturday. Early release tickets are £25 for each night. If you want to come to both evening events, you must purchase tickets for the Friday and the Saturday night separately.
