Tonefest appears to have been discontinued. Their web site only shows dates for 2013 but there is no message to say what the status of the festival is…


ToneFest3 is a unique small or “Boutique” festival, to use the modern festival terminology, with a Big ‘Vibe’ on the foothills of the beautiful Purbeck Hills in Dorset. The festival is unique and keen to remain that way. The vibe is special and created by the people and the bands, who come from all corners of the UK. The festival is only two years old and growing nicely. We keep the numbers to only 500 paying festival goers to keep it the amazing festival it is.

The aim is not to produce a massive festival, full of overpriced food and drink outlets and camping miles away from the event. It is quite the opposite, a small family orientated ‘party’ with lots to do and see, we want you to be able to camp in the same area as the event and be able to park next to your tent. Our bar is by far the cheapest of all the festivals around, the toilets are ‘posher’ than most people’s home toilet and the music, well……. that’s just special, amazing and fun!
