Mighty Boof at the Stadium line-up not one to be missed

Maximo Park and The Ordinary Boys are set to headline The Mighty Boof at the Stadium festival in Whitehaven May 13 and 14.


Taking place at Copeland Stadium, this will be the first Mighty Boof at the Stadium since 2014.

Danny Maudling, CEO of Mighty Boof Promotions, said: “We’re really happy with the line up this year there’s something for everybody in it.”

Maximo Park will take the Saturday headlining slot bringing ten years of alternative rock and five studio albums of experience to Whithaven.

The Ordinary Boys will be performing on Friday night with their mod-ska music.

Support acts on the bill include two of the biggest up and coming bands in the country: The Sherlocks and Louis Berry from Liverpool – who is booked to play Kendal Calling this year as well as Leeds and Reading festivals.

Mr Maudling said: “Getting Maximo is a statement from us, we want to start taking this event up a level and putting on bands of that calibre is just that.” He added: “The Ordinary boys on the Friday is fantastic too, and I genuinely believe we have the best support bill possible. Bands like The Sherlocks and Louis berry are going places.”
