The family friendly Friends Of Mine Festival a brand new 10,000 capacity weekend festival happening at Capesthorne Hall, Cheshire from Friday 20th until Sunday 22nd May 2011.

When the organisers of Manchester bands showcase Friends Of Mine hosted a stage at the city's final ever D:Percussion festival in 2007, it planted the germ of an idea to do their own festival on a bigger scale – a proper, bands-in-a-field, camping-over, fun-packed, three-day extravaganza.


Confirmed headliners are Bad Lieutenant, The Cribs, The Charlatans, A Certain Ratio, The Phantom band, Black Lips, and Jim Noir. Other acts for the Satellite & Lake Stages are Buzzcocks, The Wedding Present, Get Cape. Wear Cape. Fly, Aziz Ibrahim, My Tiger My Timing, Factory Floor, Frazer King, Wild Palms, The Travelling Band, Black Daniel, Natalie Findlay, Electricity in our Homes, and more.

The line-up for Big Top & House Party! includes Howard Marks, Dave Haslam (Hacienda), Stephan Morris (Joy Division / New Order), Good Vibrations, Douglas Hart (The Jesus & Mary Chain), The Wasted Little Deejays, Same Teens DJs, Friends of Mine DJs, The Disco Mums, Breakfast With Yoshimi and Zaireeka, Black Cat DJs, Black Daniel DJs, Martin Moscrop (A Certain Ratio), Tim Burgess, The Gavin Watson Project, and Mike Joyce (The Smiths / 6 Music).
