Last years line up included Legends of Goldie Lookin Chain,Lonely the Brave, Scouting for Girls and local acts over two stages. This year will be even bigger and we are having two stages once more.... Headline acts to follow shortly!
3 Stages
We have a main stage for our big acts. The second stage is for new and local acts. This stage is being run by Playingaloud. Our final stage is in our chill out area, offering a more personal experience.
We have a range of acts that will add to your festival! Earth Bound Misfits will be there to provide Circus & Street Theatre Performances.
No problems. We can offer camping for tents, camper vans and caravan on the site. The campsite has loos and showers just for campers. There is even a communal campfire with seating and hammocks… What more could a festival goer want?! Well if that’s not enough we have a midnight cinema for those film lovers among us.

Campervans are welcome in our designated area at £25 per vehicle.
Car Parking
The festival is set on an old RAF Airfield. As you can imagine we have plently of spaces! Car Parking is Free for Mudfest ticket holders.
Airfield Anarchy
Mudfest isn't just a music festival. We also have an Mudrun or OCR race over the weekend. Check out Airfield Anarchy
