The BIG PURPLE FESTIVAL is on the 12th September at the Boulevard in Wigan from 11am until 4am!!
As part of their initiative to support local bands and artists in the North West, they also aim to raise awareness and money for Kidney Research UK.
This is their second year in the festival business, so they want to continue where they left off last year and make it HUGE! Not only do they want to raise awareness and money for a great charity but also to promote the local live music scene.
