Green Gathering 2022 Review

3 years after its last outing, Festival Kidz were delighted to return to the stunning Piercefield park on the Wales/England border. So with car packed and sun hats adorned, Adam and family attended their first Green Gathering to check out why this award winning, eco-conscious, festival was consistently praised among the festival masses.

Valley Fest 2022 Review

My kids have a new favourite thing. It involves a man in a full body chain mail suit, climbing on top of a massive van der graaf generator, and firing lighting from his hands. 

I’m not sure how I’m going to top that this summer.

Folk by the Oak 2022 Review

Folk by the Oak 2022 couldn’t have come at a better moment. It was our first little toe dip back into festivals after a long pandemic break. We were eased in with soothing songs and a laid back vibe. Just as well, with the weather building to its record breaking crescendo, a chilled out festival was just what we needed. We even got to go home to our own beds afterwards.

Timber 2022 Review

Timber for us as a family marks the start of our summer, and all I can say is that it didn’t fall short of our expectations. There is something about the natural beauty of the National Forest, combined with the festival setting that captures our hearts. I am 17 years old and have been going to festivals since day dot, and Timber is one of my favourites and I can assure you it will become a tradition to go.

With a 12 year old brother also, Timber provides both of us with exactly what we need from a festival. I’m currently studying geography at A level, so looking for evidence of sustainable management is engraved into my observations; Timber demonstrates many sustainable approaches and the ethos of respecting and celebrating the landscape is at the heart of the festival.

bluedot 2022 Review

Out of this world!

It’s some time since we’ve discovered a new festival all the family enjoyed equally. The relatively new but already large-scale bluedot ticked all the boxes as a super well organised family festival and something a little different to the norm.

Shindig Festival 2022 Review

It’s been a long three years without Shindig Festival and the whole family was incredibly happy to see it finally back. After a day at the festival, one of my twelve year olds exclaimed “This is the friendliest place I’ve been to in a long time! I love it here” and the whole family agreed.

Black Deer 2022 Review

Black Deer has been awarded several ‘best new festival’ accolades and it’s easy to see why. We had no idea what to expect and deliberately didn’t tune in much to the pre-event festival hype as we were excited to rekindle those ‘first time festival vibes’ with the kids.

Maui Waui Review 2021

Maui Waui we love you! It’s been some years since we discovered a new festival and immediately felt at home. This perfectly formed little hidden gem ticked all the boxes for the whole family and we just adored it. A proper festival without the commercialism and rubbish of some these days, it just had that special authentic magic we haven’t found since saying goodbye to Festival Kidz favourite Blissfields.

The 8th Maui Waui was held at the festival’s new home of Hill Farm in Norfolk. Considering its tiny size of around 5,000 guests Maui Waui did not disappoint, and even though there were a few teething problems expected from a new festival location, we would highly recommend it to other families and are already planning to return with friends.
