Valley Fest, the best-tasting music festival in the South West, has an outstanding line up this year: Basement Jaxx (DJ set), Razorlight and Tom Odell are headlining!!


The music festival, which takes place between 2nd - 4th August 2019 alongside Chew Valley Lake, also showcases the region’s finest produce. From charcuterie to cheddars and ciders to

sausages, it’s hedge-to-hedge Somerset style and sizzle.


Now in its fifth year, Valley Fest’s line up has always included some big names as well as

plenty of rising stars. And the consistently biggest crowd pleaser of all: the view. Chew

Valley Lake provides the sparkling backdrop that is edged by the rolling Mendip hills.

What we love about this festival

The local feel and its determination to avoid commercialism

Camping and Glamping Options

Camping is free for all those who have bought Weekend Festival Tickets.

Parking is £10, (which goes to charity) you can buy your parking pass online when you purchase your festival ticket. You will need a parking pass if you have a Sunday Day Ticket and are driving to site.

Campervan passes cost £60 (which also goes to charity), these sold fast last year so we advise you to book in advance. You will need to purchase a Campervan pass, on top of your Weekend Festival Ticket/s. We cannot guarantee Campervan passes will be available on the gate. You cannot park a campervan in our Parking field during the festival.

Campervans need to be under 6m in length and are allowed one small tent or awning next to it. Note: Animals are not allowed onsite, please do not bring animals in your campervan.
