Welcome to Beacon Festival…
Returning on Friday 21st – Saturday 22nd June, this year’s family friendly festival will be opened by local band, HALVER, who were the winners of last year’s ‘Teen Stage’ and were recently interviewed by ‘BBC Introducing..’ Since finding fame at Beacon Festival 2018 the band have gone onto win ‘Rock Week 2019’ as well as performing in ‘The Bucks Music Trust Battle of the Bands’ – could it be that our quaint, Not-for-Profit festival has found a future HouseHold name? We will all have to watch this space…
Headline acts this year include Tankus The Henge who will entertain the crowds on the Friday night with their funk filled repertoire of New Orleans inspired swing and heavy rock riffs. This self-proclaimed wild groove machine is currently breaking onto National Radio, so we really believe we have chosen one of the UK’s hardest working breakthrough bands.
Our Music will extend to almost 1am on both nights and the main stage on Saturday will end with Guns or Roses, who will rock the Chilterns with their classic festival anthems! While again the festival will close at 2am on both nights. Beacon Festival continues to attract the best of local talent but this year we even have a touring band from New Zealand, Hypnumb, who are about to make waves in the UK, .
As well as the music, there’s the real Ale, Cider and Cocktail Bars that will keep the liquid refreshments pouring while the eclectic international food selection caters for the humblest of pallets through to the adventurous foodie! There will also be a heavy vegan influence this year and the Health and Wellbeing zone is expanding to include more therapies, workshops and experiences. Little people can be kept amused for hours in the ‘Kidzone before heading to the main stage area to watch the lighting of the Beacon just as the sunsets across the hills, which really is stunning!
Tickets can be purchased via the website – www.beaconfestival.net – for one day or the whole weekend with or without camping.
