Festival Information

Lakefest 2016 Overview

The fifth edition of Lakefest 2016 will see the festival moving away from its previous home at Croft Farm to Eastnor Castle - the former home of the Big Chill!

Lakefest is a family-friendly, intimate festival in the Cotswolds set in the magical surroundings of Eastnor Castle. Complete with lakes and simply stunning surroundings, they invite you to join them for their fifth year of musical magic. 

See our review of Lakefest 2015

"… and finally. Lakefest is on the move to Eastnor (site of the late, lamented, Big Chill) next year. If Lakefest 2015 taught us anything, it’s that line-up and location are but small facets of the make-up of a great festival. It’s people, its ‘The Family’ that really matter. Lakefest will carry their people with them. 2016 will be one hell of a year. "
