Last year’s inaugural festival was a phenomenal launch. With meet and greet opportunities and a warm, friendly approach, the festival encouraged a special connection between artists and fans and a wonderful communal atmosphere. 

Where else could you have your pint pulled at the bar by your favourite country artists? Where else could you wake up in the morning to the sound of some of the genre’s best talents jamming on their guitars just a few tents away? The festival encapsulates everything country music should be – love, laughs and a big like-minded family.

This year promises to crank up proceedings another notch, with an array of immensely talented musicians from all over the world coming to the festival to showcase their craft. 

The British Country Music Association will be hosting the ‘BCMA Stage’, presenting some of the brightest talents and rising prospects from the British country music scene, and there will also be a huge number of UK acts thrilling audiences on the Paddock Stage.

On the main stage, fans will have the opportunity to see a variety of international stars including Sarah Darling (USA), whose critically-acclaimed album ‘Dream Country’ has received worldwide admiration, as well as American Young (USA) who bring a wealth of song writing experience from Nashville and Australia’s Morgan Evans who has toured with superstars like Taylor Swift and Alan Jackson. The main stage will also be a platform for some of the UK’s stars to perform with full bands; a rare opportunity for fans to experience our artists at their very best.

As well as the music, conservation of the surrounding environment is also a matter that Buckle & Boots are passionately supporting. The site is situated next to Compstall Nature Reserve on the banks of the River Etherow, home to some of the region’s most beautiful and endangered species of birds, dragonflies and butterflies. Some of the funds generated by the festival will aid the conservation of these species and their natural habitat for years to come.

Tickets are priced at just £55 for a weekend ticket, £20 for a Friday ticket, £30 for a Saturday ticket and £30 for a Sunday ticket. 
Should you wish to camp and make use of the award-winning toilets and hot showers, weekend camping passes are available for only £15.

Performing at Buckle & Boots was a life changing and thrilling experience for me. One of the highlights of my career so far! What an opportunity, what a setting and what a Festival!!
