It’s no secret that Skipton’s well known for being the “Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales”. It’s beautiful scenery and its warm and welcoming community ignites a sense of pride of what Yorkshire is really about. Which is why we felt the need to launch Gateways Festival at Aireville Park.
We recognized that there was a real gap in the market for a fun, friendly and family orientated festival that not only celebrated it’s idyllic location, but it was important to us that we gave back to the community.
With the festival running for 3 consecutive days and featuring a fun fair, stalls, festival-style food, live music and an outdoor movie night, we believe we’ve organised plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained. Subsequently, the footfall expected to hit Skipton and it’s surrounding areas will not only attract business but will allow visitors so see how beautiful and entertaining Yorkshire is.
The feedback we’ve received on our incredible line-up has been outstanding, as we’re lucky enough to launch with two incredible headliners, Razorlight and Feeder, and outstanding talent from our other confirmed artists.
We’re also in the process of organizing a “Battle of the Bands” style competition as we feel it’s extremely important to showcase the array of local talent that we know exists in the region and hopefully give them the platform they deserve.
The potential popularity Gateways will ignite is not something to be underestimated. The event organisers and I have over 130 years’ experience within the events industry and are extremely excited to bring the family festival to Aireville Park. We expect it’ll become an annual event, which will be around for many more years to come.
So join us in Skipton 6th-8th August 2021 for a fun weekend filled with live music, an outdoor cinema, fairground, the very best street food vendors, bars, stalls and so much more.
