ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

DAXTONBURY IS TOTALLY ABOUT THE CHILL AND THE VIBE. GLASTONBURY IT AIN’T! WE WON’T HAVE RADIOHEAD, ADELE OR (HEAVENS FORBID) KANYE WEST – BUT OUR TICKET PRICES WON’T LEAVE YOU BROKE FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR AND OUR LOOS (PROBABLY) WON'T OVERFLOW! WHAT YOU WILL GET IS GREAT MUSIC FROM A WHOLE LOAD OF BANDS YOU WILL WANT TO SEE AGAIN, A SHED LOAD OF NEW FRIENDS AND A GREAT WEEKEND BREATHING THE COUNTRY AIR.

NOW IN ITS ELEVENTH YEAR, THE EVENT HAS STEADILY GROWN IN POPULARITY WITH CROWDS INCREASING EACH YEAR. TOGETHER WITH AN EXCITING LINE-UP OF LIVE MUSIC THERE ARE HIGH QUALITY FOOD STALLS, BEER TENTS, A COCKTAIL BAR AND A UNIQUE RANGE OF OTHER ACTIVITIES SUCH AS PONY RIDES, DOG AGILITY COURSES, KIDS AREA, CLAY PIGEON SHOOTING, AND WELLY WANGING AND A CHARITY AUCTION.

DAXTONBURY IS ABOUT GOODWILL AND ABOUT GIVING TO A GOOD CAUSE. NOBODY MAKES A PROFIT FROM THE EVENT AND EVERYONE - ORGANISERS, VOLUNTEERS, BANDS AND BACKSTAGE CREWS - GIVE THEIR SERVICES FOR FREE. YOUR HELP AND CO-OPERATION IS ESSENTIAL IN MAKING SURE WE CONTINUE TO MOVE FORWARD – ENJOY YOURSELVES AND DON’T SPOIL THE ENJOYMENT OF OTHERS. APPRECIATE THE ENVIRONMENT AND LEAVE IT LOOKING EVEN BETTER THAN IT DID WHEN YOU ARRIVED. FOLLOW OUR FEW SIMPLE RULES AND EVERYONE IS GUARANTEED TO HAVE A GOOD TIME.

Location

DAXTONBURY FESTIVAL TAKES PLACE ON PRIVATE LAND CLOSE TO THE VILLAGE OF PODINGTON IN NORTH BEDFORDSHIRE. THIS IS A LOW-KEY, LAID-BACK CHARITY EVENT AND TO AVOID THE EXPENSE OF OVERWEIGHT FENCES, SNARLING SECURITY MEN AND UNSIGHTLY GUARD DOGS THE EXACT LOCATION IS KEPT UNDER WRAPS UNTIL YOU PURCHASE YOUR E-TICKET(S). BY USING THIS APPROACH WE AVOID GATECRASHERS, FREE-LOADERS AND MAINTAIN THE FAMILY FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE MAKING DAXTONBURY SUCH A BEAUTIFUL EXPERIENCE FOR ALL.

THE FESTIVAL SITE IS FAIRLY REMOTE ALTHOUGH WE HAVE RUNNING WATER AND ELECTRICITY. THERE ARE NO SHOPS OR PUBS NEARBY NOR CASH MACHINES SO EITHER COME FULLY EQUIPPED OR BE PREPARED FOR A LONG WALK OR A SHORT DRIVE! THERE IS PLENTY OF PARKING SPACE – BUT PLEASE ADHERE TO THE SIGNS AND MAKE SURE CARS ARE CLEAR OF ROADWAYS AND EMERGENCY ACCESS ROUTES. AS DAXTONBURY IS IN A RURAL LOCATION, THERE ARE NO DIRECT LINKS TO PUBLIC TRANSPORT. WE KNOW THAT’S A PAIN BUT SADLY THAT’S THE WAY IT IS. WELLINGBOROUGH IS THE NEAREST RAILWAY STATION AND FROM THERE IT IS A NINE MILE TAXI RIDE. OR A LONG WALK.
