The Enemy to headline Friday at Godiva Festival


Returning to the festival for the first time in 15 years, indie-rock superstars The Enemy will be headlining the Main Stage at the 2023 Godiva Festival on Friday 30 June for a huge hometown show.

Born and raised in Coventry, The Enemy shot to fame with their iconic debut album ‘We'll Live and Die in These Towns' which went straight to number one in the charts. In the years since, the band have achieved a whole host of awards including two further Top 10 albums and two Top 10 singles.

The Enemy have a long history with Godiva Festival. Their live performances in 2006, 2007 and 2008 are widely considered to be among the best performances in the festival's history.  Now they return in 2023 to add to that list.

Early Bird tickets for the festival will go on sale on Friday 3 March and are fantastic value. An adult ticket for the Friday night costs just £6 and a weekend pass is available for as little as £15.

However, there will only be 20,000 Early Bird tickets available, so people are advised to get their tickets early to save money and avoid disappointment. Tickets will be available to buy at 9am on Friday 3 March from

Further announcements about the line-up will be made in the coming days.
