Lakefest

11th - 14th August 2017

Location: Eastnor Castle, Ledbury, Herefordshire HR8 1RN

Website: lakefest.co.uk

The first Lakefest took place in 2012 to wide critical acclaim.  Each year the team has built on previous years’ successes to make Lakefest even better, especially for families.

2016 saw a brand new location for Lakefest, with a move to the grounds of Eastnor Castle. Complete with lakes and simply stunning surroundings, Lakefest invite you to join them for another year of musical magic.

Lakefest 2016 Review

by Tim, Caroline, Gwilym (4) and Hazel (6)

lakefest 2016 tentHaving heard all the good reviews of this festival we were really looking forward to this one. It had moved from Croft Farm to Eastnor Castle which gave a great backdrop with the lake at the festival edge. Upon arriving I bought the organiser Lee Martin’s book ‘Hippie’ which is well worth a read, it’s just a bit of a shame more of his values aren’t portrayed in the festival. We all had a great time but it was more of a nice weekend at a festival rather than a particularly ‘festival’ experience.

Are festivals good for dogs?

With record high temperatures at festivals predicted this summer many of us will struggle with kids out in the sun. Essential festival kit for little ones included hats, water bottles, practical clothing and oodles of sunscreen. But did anyone think about what to pack for man’s best friend?

Lakefest 2015 Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERALovely family festival Lakefest charmed us once again with its perfect combination of size, music and family friendly fun, all set around a gorgeous lake complete with water sports.

This was our second Lakefest, the fifth to take place overall and in fact the final one to occur at its current Croft Farm location, with a move to Eastnor Castle planned for next year. But more on that later.

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!

Lakefest 2014 Review

???????????????????????????????

Lakefest is a true family festival held in the grounds of Croft Farm Waterpark near Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire.

The music takes place over the three days of Friday, Saturday and Sunday, but for a small extra charge you can buy a ticket that also allows you to camp on the Thursday night.

We opted to travel up on Friday afternoon and after a short journey from Bristol (there’s something to be said for local festivals!) and just a five minute queue to get into the car park, we were good to go.
