Coventry’s Godiva Festival returns to its traditional summertime spot for 2023.

Festival organisers have announced that the beloved event will be held in the War Memorial Park over three days from 30 June – 2 July.

The hugely popular festival will once again feature incredible live music from top name acts and the very best of the Coventry music scene. In addition, the event will also feature a number of unmissable family friendly attractions.

Organisers are now hard at work programming artists and attractions for the festival which in the past has featured incredible musical talent such as Tom Grennan, The Libertines, Craig David, Sister Sledge, Bananarama and Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

Further details about tickets and the 2023 line-up will be announced in the new year.

Cllr Abdul Salam Khan, Deputy Leader of Coventry City Council and Cabinet Member for Events, said: “I’m delighted that we’re able to confirm the dates for the 2023 festival. Traditionally, the festival has always been a summer event and it’s fantastic to be able to return to that classic early summer slot after being held in September for the last two years.

“This festival keeps growing every year and that’s a testament to the love and support that Coventrians have for it. It remains a crucial part of our city’s cultural calendar and of course brings lots of economic benefits to Coventry in terms of tourism.

“The Team is working hard behind the scenes to make sure that the 2023 edition is truly special. As always, we remain committed to ensuring that our festival continues to highlight the immense creative and diverse talent our city has. So, expect to continue to see a strong mixture of top name acts and local talent on the bill”

“I’m looking forward to another fantastic festival that will once again have something for everyone.
