Launched in 2012 Lakefest is a family friendly intimate festival in the Cotswolds set in the magical surroundings of Eastnor Castle.
Lakefest is a family festival - but not just in the sense that all generations will find something to delight them in the Herefordshire hills. Everyone involved, from the organisers, stewards, artists, and not least the marvellous audience, are part of the family. The festival provides a host of activities to keep the kids happy, plus BMX display teams.
The festival attracts some of UK's finest 'indie' bands, folk artists, and much much more - plus a stage dedicated to local emerging talent.
Here's what our FFA Reviewers thought of Lakefest 2018:
"The facilities were top on, the site and location lovely, the sheer variety of experiences, imagination, creativity, and organisation were all first class. This was a multi-media weekend package of the highest order. Tick it all off; BMX displays, SEGA zone, Land Rover trials, Spoken Word, Comedy, Fun Fair, loads for the kids and genuinely family friendly...
This experienced reviewer simply loves the festival scene but rarely gets such a raw emotional hit as was experienced at Lakefest. Let’s cut to the chase up front – it’s the bloody people! Everyone involved - organisers, staff, stewards, and not least the wonderful, fantastically diverse crowd are all active players here. Not a single person at Lakefest is passive, they all help form a marvellous, loving, festival community. "
