About NFEST

This year the 23rd Needingworth Music Festival takes place over the weekend of 30th June – 1st July 2018.

It’s all about the music! > NFEST18 will see 15 acts grace our two stages over one weekend of amazing live music – Saturday Rocks and Sunday Blues. Details of all acts, facilities and information for visitors will appear on our homepage in the run up to the festival. You can also keep up to date on latest developments over on our Facebook page.

NFEST is a great weekend for all the family, with plenty of places to sit in the sun and relax while enjoying the fantastic bands. There is a lovely play park with an all-weather court, as well as lots of grass for games. And of course our huge marquee means that even if it rains the show goes on!

Sorry Rover…. > Unfortunately dogs are not allowed on the playing field, so please leave them at home to avoid disappointment.

Food and drink > As the festival is the main annual fund-raising event for the Needingworth Village Hall,  please do not bring your own food and drink. There is plenty of great choice on site, including a full bar, cake and refreshments stall and BBQ options.

Ticket info > 

Entry to the festival is by voluntary donation. The Festival is organised entirely by a team of unpaid volunteers, including Trustees of the Village Hall and other local heroes. The Village Hall is a registered charity and all profits from the festival go into maintaining the Hall as a resource for the whole community to use, all year round.

Festival Times > Gates open at 1pm on Saturday and the site closes after the last band finishes at 10.30pm. Gates from 12noon on the Sunday and the festival closes at 6pm. Our two stage set up means there is hardly any downtime between acts, so you won’t find yourself hanging around. It’s all about the music.

Want to help out? > You would? Great! We’re always looking for people to lend a hand for a couple of hours across the weekend – there are plenty of great roles helping to run the site or the catering. Please email us or send us a message on our Facebook page – you’ll find links at the bottom of this page.
