12 years ago a small group of musicians, living in Lapford, Devon decided to put on a music festival for the village. It was a huge success with massive local support so a group of live music enthusiasts volunteered to do it again, and again as an annual event; and here we are in our 12th year.
The festival is a ‘not for profit’ event with ticket prices kept as low as possible. This is due to the efforts of a huge band of volunteers and wonderful musicians who keep their costs as low as possible because they love our festival atmosphere, the great setting, the superb sound system and an appreciative audience. (check out this years musicians on our line up page)
Despite getting some big names and over a thousand people, we are still a village music festival with Friday night set aside for up-and-coming local young musicians who rarely get the chance to play to a festival crowd.
Saturday is full-on music across 3 stages with local bands and a few from a little further away. In addition to the music, there are two arenas of colourful traders and workshops, Turkoman style yurts, activities and fun for all the family.
Our real ales and ciders are sourced locally as is the food which is expertly prepared and cooked by some excellent local chefs (although they think of themselves as just good honest cooks!). All the vegetarian food is prepared and cooked separately.
All run by volunteers just to raise the funds to cover the cost of the bands, hire of the tents and loos and professional services of stage, sound and light.
Come and have a great time!
