With less than 4 weeks to go until this years Nozstock – the Hidden Valley gets underway, here is a little of what you can expect from this amazing, family friendly festival:
WIN tickets to the fantastic family festie that is Farmfest!
We are giving a lucky Festival Kidz reader the chance to kick off the summer holidays with a bang and win two adult tickets (under 12s go free) to the Somerset hoedown with a difference.
Farmfest 2017 has a stonking good line up that includes Roots Manuva, Shobaleader One, DJ Yoda and Nightmares on Wax. With over 50 acts over eight stages/tents you won’t want to miss this two-day favourite, based at Gilcombe Farm, just outside Bristol, on July 28 and 29.
On top of the great music there’s an alternative entertainment programme of comedy, interactive playful stuff and plenty of kids activities. This festie has built up a family audience due to its chilled atmosphere, single field arena format and great kids’ tent.
We’ve loved previous Farmfests. Here’s a comment from last year:
“Farmfest is relaxed, safe and fun. I snuck out of the tent at 1am and went dancing on my own (while dad and kids slept), it was glorious!” – Lucy,
Don’t forget to look out for this year’s review later on in the summer.

Festivals are a big strain on the environment. Huge amounts of waste are created by events every weekend in the UK, sending hundreds of tons of extra waste in to landfill or off for incineration. For many families who live eco-conscious lives at home, the good efforts go straight out of the window when camping. There seems to be a disposable version of almost everything these days, and our throw away society is all too apparent when you see the piles of camping equipment and rubbish discarded on a Monday morning after a festival.
A family friendly festival through and through
Folk by the Oak is just outside London, but its leafy location feels a million miles away. As the UK’s largest one day folk festival it promises all the open air buzz of a 3 day festival packed into one joyous day of music, fun and bunting!
Born in 2008; the fruition of a long held dream for festival directors Adam and Caroline Slough, Folk by the Oak is about to celebrate the 10th festival with a sensational 2017 line-up that includes Levellers, Kate Rusby and Show of Hands to name but a few.
Where posh and festivals meet…
This year sees the 14th and final Cornbury Music Festival. Set in the gorgeous Great Tew Park in Oxfordshire, Cornbury has welcomed Festival Kidz warmly for many years. It is a great introduction to festivals for people with children.
