Size: 1500


Dance, Live Music, & Arts Festival
(where we play all day, and dance all night)


Chilled in a Field, 2015 Tiny Festival Runner Up2014 Gold Award Winner & 2013 Silver Award Winner, is a favourite of Festival Kidz because they have managed to retain the friendly festival vibe while creating a wonderful safe place for children to play. Due to its tiny size the children are free to roam around, make friends and explore while the parents can chill out and relax. There is live music, workshops and activities, local real ales and ciders, DJs and a relaxing Tea Tent so all tastes are catered for.

We are excited to hear that Chilled in a Field is returning in 2018.

Chilled in a Field is a feel good modern family-friendly festival. Having kids doesn’t have to mean you miss out on the best live music and DJs. Bring them to the party with you! Your friends without kids will love it too. This is a small but perfectly formed festival with everything you need to totally chill.

Grown from the London party scene of the 90’s, Chilled in a Field is a small, independent festival for grown-up party people and their kids. Free activities are available all day; bands, musicians, artists, science, theatre, performances and, of course, awesome dance music from some of the UK’s top independent labels mean you’ll have a great time with no need to keep finding extra cash.

Guests can indulge in the festival spa with a spot of pampering or a dip in the woodfired hot tub and sauna while the kids play safely within easy sight. There is even the chance to ride a mini steam train around the festival site!

The glorious surroundings of the Bentley Estate in Sussex offer a perfect location for a family festival. Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum is just across the way, and there’s even a brilliant tree top high wire adventure park called Branching Out Adventures. Both of these attractions are not part of the festival but offer lovely additions to an extended break in the school holidays.

Chilled in a Field

Chilled in a Field is an environmentally conscious not-for-profit social gathering run by volunteers. It’s a great chance for adults and children to make new friends, discover new experiences and enjoy nature, as well as having a whole lot of silly fun!

See for yourself why this award-winning family festival has won our Festival Kidz awards three years running!

Tickets are capped – to keep the festival feeling small and lovely – and it sells out every year so book early.

We can’t wait to play all day and dance all night with these guys again!
