What makes the Acoustic Festival unique?

The Acoustic Festival of Britain boasts quality names across all music genres performing their talents, but stripped down to its original format and surrounded by stories.   Some of the biggest bands on the scene have prepared special acoustic sets for The Acoustic Festival over the years. If you’re new to the idea – think ‘MTV Unplugged’ and you’ll get the picture!

Facilities and Site Features:

The whole site is on level ground and surrounded by a circular hard surface roadway.  This means that even in very wet weather it is still easy to get around the festival.

You can park your car next to your tent.  There are Posh ‘flushing’ Loos, Showers, and Caravan/Camper Van passes are available at no extra charge (pre-booking required).  There will also be some glamping options.

Tickets available from the website.
