Moovin Festival returns to Manchester this August Bank Holiday with an explosion of sound and colour.

The festival promises to be a sensory overload, packed with world-class music, organic and immersive stage designs, delicious food and mesmerising fire shows.

This year’s festival promises to be bigger and better than ever but all within the usual (and strict) capacity limit.

The first headliners revealed are superstars from across the musical spectrum including Arrested Development, Basement Jaxx, KRS One, David Rodigan, Todd Terje, Mr Scruff, Eek A Mouse, Derrick Carter, Craig Charles, Beardyman, Plump DJs, Asian Dub Foundation and many more.

The unique and escapist location is the eco-friendly Whitebottom farm in the stunning countryside in Compstall, not far from Manchester centre.

The walk to the site itself is a magical experience, through Etherow Country Park, full of lush greenery, lakes and birds leading to a breathtaking natural gorge at the entrance to the festival site itself.

The festival is crafted with a real attention to detail to make sure there’s an extra special free-spirited vibe and fun-loving crowd each year. 

The lineup is stacked with quirky bands, fresh, up and coming acts, local talents, curious distractions, mouthwatering food offerings and plenty more surprises that make for non-stop adventure and exploration across the weekend.

Arrested Development

This year’s headliners include dance music icons Basement Jaxx, Grammy award-winners Arrested Development and New York’s finest, KRS. 

There will also be Chicago house originator Derrick Carter and Craig Charles bringing his infamous funk sound to the party.
