Festival Information

Off The Tracks Spring Festival 2013 Overview

Off The Tracks is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and is an event that brings you two festivals each year from Castle Donington in the very heart of England. A great FFA favourite and voted a top "small is beautiful" festival by The Times, Off The Tracks is a marvelous, family friendly festival.

Artists booked to appear include Alabama 3, The Popes, Merry Hell, Dub Pistols DJ Set, Salsa Celtica, The Paperboys, and Blair Dunlop.

Our FFA reviewers simply love this festival (and the OTT Summer sister event!). Read what we thought of previous year’s Off The Tracks events under ‘Latest News’ below!

“Some festivals are truly great events; great atmosphere, great bands, great facilities, but they don’t have a VIBE. Off The Tracks simply oozes vibe. That electric feeling, from the moment you arrive, when you realise you are part of something very special.” FFA Spring 2012 Review.

Off The Tracks Spring Festival 2013 Event Info

This is a fantastic family friendly festival based in the heart of England.

This festival is situatated in the lovely countryside of the Derbyshire/Leicestershire border near Castle Donington.

Ordinarily a camping and caravan site, the facilities are great; proper loos, showers. There are hook up points for caravans and mobile homes.

There are 3 stages; the main, the 2nd and the barn, with a performance area near the ale bar with impromptu sessions in the farmhouse bar or in the courtyard
