About Us

Beacon Festival is Oxfordshire’s best family friendly music festival, held in Watlington each June.


The festival is a not-for-profit event that provides probably the best location to watch live music - not just in Oxfordshire - but probably in the UK, with stunning views across the Chilterns.

It is not just about the music at our event.  With a purely plant-based food offering, a dedicated kids Zone, a variety of workshops, a feel-good area - and of course, a well-stocked real ale bar, cider bar and guest bars  - Beacon festival is the perfect community even for all the family. 

Whether you want to spend the whole weekend with us camping on site, or just to visit us on either the Friday or the Saturday, once you have been, you will keep coming back.

If you have never been to a festival then this is the one to try. There is easy access to everything, no queues, and a wide variety of musical genres to cater for all tastes. If you are a seasoned festival-goer then we are probably already on your radar and if not, then where have you been?

When the sun starts setting over Oxfordshire late in the evening, Beacon Festival is the most magical place to be, with a drink in one hand some food in the other, friends and family laughing around you and a wonderful mix of music filling the night sky. Oh and when the night does come we light the Beacon on top of hill which can be seen for miles.

Join us for a wonderful weekend.


If you fancy doing something to contribute to the event, then take a look at how to volunteer, apply to perform, explore our sponsorship opportunities, or apply to be a charity partner.
