Following a hugely successful launch last year, Buckle & Boots Country Festival will return for a second year in June at Whitebottom Farm.
Located in the heart of the Stockport countryside in Etherow Park, Buckle & Boots provides a unique opportunity for country fans to experience some of the greatest talents in British and US country. Taking place over three days in June, the festival combines stunning music, great food, top quality camping facilities and an unrivalled community spirit, creating one of the most entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable events of the year.
This year promises to crank up proceedings another notch after last year’s phenomenal launch, 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 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, whose critically-acclaimed album Dream Country has received worldwide admiration, as well as American Young 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.
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.
