Sound Control 'Glabstonbury' music festival to celebrate young Sale man with terminal cancer

Some of the UK’s finest music acts will play Manchester’s Sound Control this Sunday to help celebrate the life of a young Sale man diagnosed with terminal cancer.

Chris Glaba was recently diagnosed with stomach, liver and kidney cancer and given just a few months to live – prompting his sister to launch a bucket list appeal to ensure her brother got the chance to live life to the fullest in his last few months.

Her generosity has spawned Glabstonbury, which will kick off at 2pm, for a full day of live music and DJs at the city centre venue on New Wakefield St.

Brit alternative rock band Maximo Park will headline with support from The Views Kyle Falconer, performing an exclusive acoustic set, The Sunshine Underground (DJ set), Happy Monday’s legend Bez and Chris Helme of The Seahorses.

A host of other DJs and acts also form part of the solid Sunday line-up which promises to give party and music-loving Chris a day to remember.

A raffle hosted by the legendary Bez on the day will see a huge selection of amazing prizes up for grabs, with all proceeds going directly to Macmillan.

Raffle prizes include tickets to see The Courteeners at the Etihad Stadium, VIP Kendall Calling, Hideout Croatia and Kendall Calling tickets and a host of other exclusive merchandise and goodies.

A small selection of tickets are now on sale to the public, priced at £20 each, with all proceeds going directly to Macmillan and Chris’ bucket list.
