WIN A WEEKEND FAMILY TICKET to one of the best family music festivals in the Chilterns!


Beacon Festival 2018Welcome to Beacon Festival…

If you’re reading this right now, it means you’re curious. Then let us take you by the hand and lead you on a short journey through the festival, it will only take a minute.

Imagine a sunset! You’re thinking the Bahamas, Mauritius maybe? Well what if we told you, that most beautiful sunset is much closer than you think, in fact right under your nose, here in Oxfordshire, near the longest day. Believe us yet? Then allow us to set the scene…

Music from this year’s headline acts Killerz and RustyShackle is blasting from the main stage, you have a huge smile on your face because these were the bands you’ve be wanting to see! You have discovered some new, up and coming bands this weekend but these two are your favourite. Your child is sat on your shoulders blowing bubbles and the soap keeps dripping on your forehead but you don’t mind, it’s making you laugh. Your partner is by your side having a little jig and your stomach is full from sampling some fantastic food at the stalls, but there’s still room for a nice cold beverage from the real ale tent and a Mojito (or two) from the cocktail bar.

Your thoughts wander for a moment and you laugh to yourself at the thought of trying to put that tent up yesterday (why can you never remember how it goes up?). Then after relaxing in the camping chairs for a moment and congratulating yourselves for finally putting it up, you take the children to go and play in the ‘kids zone’, all laughter and giggles. You wander round the stalls and buy yourself a bowler hat, it suits you, (or so you think?). Your friends arrive, so you pull up a hay bale, sit and chat and listen to the many varied acts whilst washing it down with a local cider from the bar and enjoying a side-splitting evening watching the late night comedy acts.

And then, there’s that sunset that we were talking about! It’s beautiful from this vantage point, just setting over the main stage and you can see for miles, you didn’t realise how far. Then they light the Beacon! And that smiles back again! Want to know more? Visit
