TOM Zanetti and Bad Boy Chiller Crew will be among those performing at a Barrow music festival.

Barrow AFC are staging their first festival at The Dunes Hotel Stadium on May 21, with the international artists Tom Zanetti and Bad Boy Chiller Crew topping the bill.

Barrow company, Pitch Up Events, will be leading the organisation of the exciting project which will also see a host of local artists. such as Wallis McDowall and Joel Talbot, given the chance to showcase their talents to a crowd of up to 5,000.

It’s set to be an end of season party to remember, complemented by local food vendors to keep festival-goers charged up during the event.

The festival will also benefit good causes with Pitch Up Events set to donate a share of the profits to St Mary’s Hospice’s ‘Pay For A Day’ campaign and a charity close to their hearts, Alike.

“We’re really proud and excited to be bringing something of this magnitude to Barrow,” said Bluebirds General Manager, Alisha Henry.

“It’s something for us all to really look forward to and it’s an event that we hope the whole town can come and enjoy, not just Barrow supporters.

“It’s going to be an amazing day with the talent on stage but what we’re really excited about it just bringing the town and community together after what has been an incredibly tough couple of years.”

Tickets for the event will go on sale online from January 21 on Barrow AFC's website.

Things will kick-off from 12noon at The Dunes Hotel Stadium and the party will go on until midnight.

“We launched Pitch Up Events in lockdown with the vision of bringing people back together after a long period apart,” explained Pitch Up’s James Bonner.

“The ‘Pitch Up Pledge’ is to not only provide big events but to give back to the community we feel lucky to be a part of. We’re very proud to have donated a hefty part of our profits back into the local sports clubs that have hosted us so far.

“At the same time, we have generated new income for local vendors that attend our events and we have also been able to donate to local charities such as mental health charity UOKLAD.

“Our latest collaboration with Barrow AFC, Pitch Up Music Festival, is set to be our biggest event yet."
