Birthday bash: DJ Dave Sweetmore returns to Rochdale’s Feel Good main stage

12 June 2017

Birthday bash DJ Dave sweetmore host.

Popular hometown DJ Dave Sweetmore has joined the main stage line-up for this year's Rochdale Feel Good Festival.

It will be Dave's 8th appearance at our summer event and he says with 2017 being the festival's 10th birthday it's going to be extra special:

"It's an honour to be asked back again to such an amazing festival. Rochdale Feel Good is always one of the highlights of the year for me as not only is it a great event to host, it's in my hometown. This year's line-up is brilliant - what a way to celebrate the 10th anniversary of a weekend which shows what's great about Rochdale. I think this will be the best one yet - and last years will take some beating … I can't wait!"

The club, radio, concert and festival DJ is nationally-renowned for his indie tunes and has spent two decades DJ-ing at venues across the country with residencies at many iconic nightclubs and bars, as well as working with bands including the Happy Mondays, James, Inspiral Carpets, Northside and Cast. He's a regular commentator on the North West music scene, always championing new bands and live music.
