Cornbury Music Festival

What we love about this festival.

The eclectic mix of acts means that this festival would suit all but the most hardcore festival goers. We also love the stunning surroundings and the fact that going to this festival could easily be tagged on to a holiday in the Cotswolds. 

Camping and Glamping Options

You'll be spoilt for choice with glamping options but you could do worse than pitching up in the main campsite with spectacular country views. The glamping options are situated in the Great Tew aboretum and include Podpads, Cloudhouses (yurts and squrts), Tipis, Gregs Gypsy Bowtops, Glampervans, Salt and Dry Dining and the Pop Up Hotel/Motel.

A touch of luxury

There are plenty of "add-ons" at Cornbury to upgrade your festival experience. Therapixie is a gated area offering a wide range of treatments such as aromatherapy, hot stone massage, reflexology, Swedish massage and many more.

Cornbury undoubtedly has a quintessentially English feel and, despite being a little larger than some of the similar independent festivals, it certainly retains its charm and bespoke feel. 

Set in beautiful English countryside, and therefore providing an opportunity to visit many local attractions before or after the festival, your weekend at Cornbury could easily be part of a longer summer holiday. 

The acts performing at Cornbury include many big names, such as James Blunt, Cyndi Lauper, Ray Davies and Imelda May. So you clearly can have your cake and eat it: a stellar lineup up in a more refined festival setting.

Dubbed by the Daily Telegraph as "poshstock", this festival has attracted its share of the middle class smart crowd: David Cameron, Alex James and Jeremy Clarkson have been among those to be spotted sipping champagne whilst appreciating the bands.

Cornbury, a country fair with a "rock n' roll twist", will unfortunately be holding its final edition in 2017 and the organisers have, therefore, curated a lineup to die for to celebrate its grand finale.
