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.

Chilled in a Field keeps getting better and better. This was the fourth time our family have attended this event, and it was by far the best. A mix of great music, a friendly vibe, and an amazing venue has made this little festival one of our families’ firm favourites.

Best Family Festivals 2015

CIAF 2014


Here are our top picks for 2015!

Whether a festival is good for you depends on what music you’re into and what other things you like doing at festivals, as well as the age of your kids. If you are new to festivals with kids, you may want to read our guide to Choosing the right Family-Friendly Festival.

We have included our affiliate links in the listings – if you click “Buy Tickets Now” you will go straight to the ticket page for your chosen festival. You will not pay anything for this but the festival will give us a small commission to keep Festival Kidz up and running – so please use them!

Chilled in a Field 2014 Review

CIAF 2014 - 59It’s easy to define what makes a good festival (organisation, facilities, activities and entertainment) but much harder to define what makes an exceptional one.

It’s just something about the atmosphere, the mix of people and the imagination of its creators. You get this right and you see magic happen, and that’s what Chilled in a Field manages to do every year.

I believe the main reason for this is because it is currently a non profit venture and run purely for the love of it – much like Festival Kidz in fact!

Best festivals for toddlers 2014

DSC_0941The toddler stage is possibly the most difficult age to do festivals, but it doesn’t mean it can’t be done!

For really young kids we recommend small festivals, particularly if you are not an experienced festival-goer or camper. For a successful festival experience with toddlers you need space to run around or relax, less crowds, smaller distances between campsite, arena and carpark, a good selection of child-friendly food and a willingness to take things at your toddler’s pace (see also Naomi’s Top Tips for doing Festivals with Toddlers).

Taking the Plunge!

Is this your first time?

Don’t worry if you’re a bit nervous about the whole idea of a music festival with children. Even if you went to a hundred festivals before you had kids, the first one with them is a completely new experience! Read more…
