“This Is The One”. Surely?
With all government coronavirus restrictions due to the lift on the 19th July, the organisers of SPIKE ISLAND – THE RESURRECTION have confirmed the festival will go ahead as-planned the following weekend.
Scheduled to take place on Saturday 24th July, the one-day outdoor festival is anticipated to be one of the first major music events to take place in post-lockdown Britain.
In a statement, the Spike Island – The Resurrection Team and organisers Lightbulb Festivals say:
“In light of the recent government announcement and their promise that 19th July will be the “terminus” date, we are delighted to confirm that we are proceeding with plans to hold the gig on Saturday 24th July 2021. This has been an incredibly difficult decision given the recent uncertainty, and the team have been doing a lot of hard work behind the scenes to try and make the event go ahead as planned. We are now very confident that our festival will be one of the first to take place in the UK after the re-opening… We are incredibly grateful for all the support we have had for the event, with a staggering number of people keeping hold of their tickets.”
SPIKE ISLAND – THE RESURRECTION is a day of celebrations planned to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Stone Roses’ era-defining gig at Spike Island, Widnes.
Originally planned to take place in 2020, the festival is bouncing back this year with over 85% of tickets for the 2021 fixture now sold out.
With its full and original line-up still intact, attendees can expect a number of further exciting surprises to be unveiled in the final weeks counting down to the festival. Stay tuned.

On 24th July, SPIKE ISLAND: THE RESURRECTION invites music fans everywhere to come together at Spike Island, Widnes to rejoice in Roses and resurrections, as live music returns in emphatic style.

A festival celebrating The Stone Roses’ era-defining gig of 1990 in all its glory, SPIKE ISLAND: THE RESURRECTION is a one day festival that will re-open the original site to music fans for the first time since that historic day. With a headline set by THE CLONE ROSES (the UK’s No.1 tribute to The Stone Roses), this celebratory day of music will aim to re-capture the sights, sounds and atmosphere of what is widely considered as one of the greatest shows ever. The event will also see performances from other top-tier tribute acts including: OAS-IS, THE SMITHS LTD, HAPPY MONDAZE, THE JAMES EXPERIENCE, and TRUE ORDER; plus a number of original faces from the iconic Madchester scene including CLINT BOON (Inspiral Carpets), BEZ (Happy Mondays), ANDY (808 STATE), and MC TUNES (Dust Junkys).
Making history in its own right, ‘Spike Island – The Resurrection’ will be the only live performance to have been held at the Widnes site since the Stone Roses headlined in 1990. The event is also on course to break records as the biggest tribute-themed festival the world has ever seen!
With 85% sold already and over 5000 tickets snapped-up on its first day alone, the public reception to the festival has been nothing short of phenomenal and organisers would like to thank those who have shown their support for the event throughout these turbulent months for the live industry.
