Beacon Festival is back -- bigger and better!
Beacon Festival is Oxfordshire’s leading sustainable family-friendly music festival, held in the heart of the Chilterns-- and we're back for 2024!
The festival is a not-for-profit event that provides one of the best locations to watch live music - not just in Oxfordshire - but probably in the UK.
Held at the idyllic Watlington Hill Farm Sanctuary, Beacon Festival is the perfect place to soak up stunning views across the Chiltern Hills whilst you dance away to everything from hard rock to ska, world rock to folk.
With Sparkle Vegan Village offering a wide range of plant-based food and local artisan traders, a dedicated KidsZone providing a range of workshops and sessions for all ages, a relaxing Feel-Good area - and of course, a well-stocked real ale bar, cider bar and guest bars - Beacon is a festival that the whole family can enjoy.
Camping is available for tents and camper vans -- so why not make a weekend of it?
Join us for a wonderful Summer Solstice weekend, 21-22 June 2024.
