A brand-new boutique festival is coming to Cheshire later this year and fabulous entertainment for all the family will be right at the heart of it!
Polo Fest will be held at the Chester Lakes complex just outside Chester on Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September.
Headlining and closing the festival on both days will be Brit Award nominated band Toploader. Since forming in 1997, Toploader have sold over two million albums and had a string of top 20 hits both at home and abroad. Their debut album ‘Onka’s Big Moka’ stayed in the top 5 of the album charts for over six months, whilst their 2000 single ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ became a global hit spending over a year on the European Airplay Charts.
Saturday’s line-up features award winning comedy singer-songwriter Jay Foreman who sold out a string of shows at the Edinburgh festival. Simon Webbe is best known as the voice behind iconic boyband Blue and will perform a selection from his string of top 10 and number one hits both as a solo artist and as a member of the band. Melanie C will be hitting the decks with her amazing 90s Mix tape DJ set. As part of the biggest girl band the world has ever seen - The Spice Girls - Melanie C is a house hold name all over the planet. In 1996, their debut single "Wannabe" hit number one in 37 countries, establishing the global phenomenon that was the Spice Girls. The girls went on to have an incredible 9 No.1 singles in the uk alone, selling over 31 million albums worldwide.
Sunday’s line-up features the high energy rhythm and blues of popular Cheshire band Zoot Serious and the Bellyful of Bop led by charismatic front man Nick Haggart. Next up is the is a voice which Gary Barlow described as “incredible” - Sam Bailey, winner of the X-Factor in 2013 can count Beyonce as a fan as she supported her on a recent world tour. And before Toploader close the festival we have a real treat – a DJ set from fashion expert and much-loved TV star Gok Wan.
