The opening night headliners Happy Mondays, are supported by Echo and the Bunnymen, plus Peter Hook and the Light, The Farm, The Rain Band, Graeme Park, Echo Tape, and The Mantels, and more acts to be announced.
Topping the bill on Sunday is Razorlight, with support from Johnny Borrell & Zazou, Diversity, James Arthur, Nick Grimshaw, The Hoosiers, Coolio, Tinchy Stryder, Shannon Saunders, Youth Club, Alexander Wolfe, and King No One. With more big names to follow.
The main stage will be on the pitch at Gigg Lane, with the second stage line up yet to be announced. BL9 is the result of a collaboration between Bury FC's Chairman, Stewart Day, and music industry guru Andrew Brooks.
Andrew commented "Football clubs all over the UK offer the perfect infrastructure for a festival and, rather than being in remote villages, they are easily accessible and perfect for our needs. Our ambition is to work with crew and suppliers from the local area to demonstrate that Bury FC caters for music and football fans alike, creating an unmissable event."
Early bird tickets go on sale from 9am today, Monday 9th March, priced at £60 for the weekend, or £35 per day (adults).
