Festival Information

Forever Sun Festival 2013 Overview

Forever Sun Music Festival takes place in Dorchester, Dorset between the 16th and 17th of August 2013. Over two days with free camping and 3 stages you can enjoy live music and performances from some of the top names in British rock and pop including ex Stranglers front man Hugh Cornwell and the legendary Neil Innes plus Irish female singing star Eleanor McEvoy.

Giving the Forever Sun Music Festival a taste of old school you will see live performances from Dodgy and Space plus the unique sound of sixties sensation The Zombies. Plus theatrical performances from the likes of steampunk master and all round good egg Professor Elemental.

Deep in the near seaside cleavage of dipthong Dorset and just a slight cidery stagger from the county town of Dorchester, the Forever Sun Festival bursts forth like a generous dollop of musical marmalade upon the toasted laps of another warm audience. Experience a summer pudding swell of original music and unique performances whilst lazing in the daisy splashed fields of sunny Dorset. From rock to folk, ethnic to urban with comedy, street theatre, food and lots of lurvly cider.

Artists booked to appear include Hugh Cornwell, The Zombies, Dodgy, Space, King Kurt, and The Dolmen.

 

Forever Sun Festival 2013 Event Info

Camping is free, parking is free, the folks are friendly, the food is delicious, and cider, wine and beer will provide a river of woozy delight to rock your boat on. Not a drop of summer rain will spoil your main stage adventure under their giant big-top or relax in a soft chair as you enjoy the musical, theatrical and comedy talents in their curiosity lounge and go al fresco and picnic in the sun to the lazy throb of their straw-clad 'Nobby's stage' - its name doffing a musical hat towards the late great Stevie Charles of Nobby's Cousins fame.

You can choose from a two day ticket or a one day ticket - both include free camping and parking. There are also children's tickets (14yrs-15yrs) available at a reduced price.

If your belly's full of tunes and you want a change of pace, the festival offers many other attractions. From retail therapy to wandering street performers, theatrical shows and amusement stalls plus a wide variety of delicious food and laid back bars. Why not learn a new skill at one of their workshops or veg out and grab a massage. There are many ways to withdraw, amuse and prepare yourself for a return to the live music extravaganza.

Festival Opening Times:

Friday 16th > midday - midnight

Saturday 17th > 8am - midnight
