Formed in 2009, local lads The Virginmarys are a huge success for Macclesfield. Featuring members Ally Dickaty and Danny Dolan, the heavy punk rock act have played Download Festival and supported huge acts including Slash, Queens of the Stone Age, Eagles of Death Metal, Shinedown, Feeder, Ash and Skunk Anansie as well as playing headline gigs of their own.
In 2013 they were honoured with a Best Breakthrough act award at the 2013 Classic Rock Awards.
Their sound has been described as the Arctic Monkeys meets the Foo Fighters and we can see why, these guys rock! Make sure to come see them tear up the Macclesfield Rocks Main Stage in 2018.
