Two days of live music comes to West Park in Wolverhampton on the 28th and 29th of May, 2022. Headlined by IDLES on the Saturday night, the line-up also includes Happy Mondays who headline on the Sunday, with Shaun Ryder pulling double duty over the weekend by also performing with Black Grape.
IDLES are taking the world by storm after releasing their number one album 'ULTRA MONO' and the band are an unstoppable live force. The event is curated by Creation Records supremo Alan McGee. Speaking of The Utilita Creation Day Festival, McGee says: "I'm very pleased to be asked again by the City of Wolverhampton Council & Toura Toura Festivals to curate the Utilita Creation Day Festival 2022. It's great to see that most of the bands that missed out on playing due to covid restrictions this year, have all agreed to come back and play in 2022 with the fantastic addition of IDLES”
