Off The Tracks Summer Festival 2018 Preview Posted on Wed 22nd August 2018
Thirty years old and OTT proves that quality counts…
The fabulous Off The Tracks festival returns to Derbyshire for its Thirtieth Birthday bash 31st Aug - 2nd Sep 2018.
In a throw away culture of one day fashion and thirty second Twitter Storms, the wonderful OTT once again stands as a bastion of quality, and proves, if prove were needed, that Good. Things. Have. Permanence.
Our FFA Reviewers simply love that famous OTT VIBE! Take a look at the Festivals For All Off The Tracks Summer Festival 2017 Review for just a hint of what does down at this daddy of the British festival summer scene. There is simply nothing not to like. For many, including these intrepid FFA Reviewers, OTT marks the end of the outdoor festival camping scene, and is a perfect location to do so. As we said, there is nothing not to like, and it’s an ideal festival to finish the outdoor year on a bang; the festivals is held on a permanent year round camping site, with all the facilities to boot, the festival is all under cover, and is held within converted farm buildings on a diversified farm… with its own permanent on-site pub and diner amongst other things! It’s a brilliant location. Throw in a real ale and cider festival, a wonderfully diverse crowd of all types and persuasions and an atmosphere to die for, and OTT, well, it has it all. No wonder some attendees have graced the event for each one of its glorious seasons. OTT is small, intimate, and with one of the most friendly, buzzing atmospheres on the scene. The Vibe is all at OTT.
The bands are not the half of it at OTT, but each year, the festival delivers a host of class artists throughout the line-up, with many an undiscovered upcoming band down the bill at OTT later to find greatness. Its that kind of festival. 2018 witnesses Transglobal Underground featuring Natacha Atlas, Aurora Dawn and the ScreaminSkulls with special guests, Dreadzone, John Otway and his Little Big Band, The Bar Steward Sons of Val Doonican, and Mad Dog Mcrea amongst a packed roster.
