The festival – celebrating its 10th birthday – will return on Saturday 12 August, confirmed organisers Rochdale Borough Council, who are promising another incredible showcase of entertainment, food and culture.

Past Feel Good performers include The Fratellis, The South, Scouting for Girls, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Toploader, The Feeling, Martha Reeves and the Vandellas, Badly Drawn Boy and The Lightning Seeds.

The 2017 festival will include live music across indoor venues,a main stage against the backdrop of the town hall, a quality food market and family entertainment.

The festival is funded by the council together with sponsorship from local businesses.

Warm-up events will be held the day before the festival and earlier in August.

Once again a local band will get a chance to play the main stage. Last year Rochdale feel good four piece ‘The Jackson Kay Band’ got the party started with a storming set on the Saturday afternoon. The competition will be launched in April with local acts encouraged to apply to win the coveted slot.
