Inglefest is a grassroots independent music festival, showcasing up-and-coming artists from the the vibrant Bristol music scene and beyond. What started as an around-the-campfire jam has grown, in just a few short years, into a 1000 capacity, two-day camping festival with a line-up spanning three stages and over thirty acts.
The festival is made possible by a passionate group of family and friends, who volunteer their time into making a bespoke, one-of-a-kind event with a real homespun feel. From meticulously crafted artwork, props and sculptures, to all the organisational ins-and-outs, Inglefest has grown purely from the love of live music and our commitment to welcoming everyone into the fold.
We are proud to support local businesses and provide our acts with a platform in front of a friendly, attentive and like-minded crowd. We run on a strict no-clash policy, meaning each act gets as fully attentive an audience as possible! This year we have moved from our original location and upgraded our site to cater for an ever-growing demand. 2019 will see the 4th Inglefest and our biggest, most ambitious year yet.
We have a NEW site for Inglefest this year! We are still keeping the location secret but can tell you it’s in the heart of Gloucestershire within the GL12 postcode. All attendees will be emailed the full address and directions one month prior to the event.
where is inglefest?
The site will be open to all campers and non-campers from midday on Friday, and closes again at midday on the Sunday. One-day only ticket holders are not permitted to camp on site and must vacate the premises by midnight on the day their ticket is valid for.
Please make sure your e-tickets or QR codes are ready when you arrive to ensure a swift arrival process.
There will be plenty of space for you to park your cars. However as we all endeavour to reduce our environmental impact, please consider travelling as a group or lift sharing.
If you are stuck for a lift please feel free to contact us here and we can see if there are others coming through the same route. There is no direct public transport to the site and public transport throughout Gloucestershire is not very regular, so the best way to access the site is by car or bike. Also, feel free to look on our event facebook page here to see if anyone has a spare seat in their car.
Please be advised that our new site is all in one field. A single entrance will be managed with two gates and a holding bay in between. All cars must temporarily park in the holding bay while collecting wristbands before being allowed through the second gate into the main car park, which will be accessible for the rest of the weekend.

We have put on extra expense this year to cater for children and make the experience for parents and children a safe and enjoyable one.
By providing options for children’s tickets we hope to offset the extra costs for parents who want to come and enjoy Inglefest. Checking that the correct ticket has been bought for children is difficult, and we expect your honesty when purchasing tickets for them. All children must be accompanied by an adult to enter the site.
Children are welcome to attend Inglefest! However, across the weekend all kids 13-and-under must be accompanied by a responsible adult. Children under 5 are free of charge and kids 13-and-under have a reduced fee. Please refer to tickets above.
Our bars operate a strict challenge 25 policy, and as a result we are introducing under 18 wristbands. If you cannot provide proof of age on the front desk when collecting your wristbands you will be given an under 18 wristbands and will not be served alcohol. We will not tolerate underage drinkers who bring their own alcohol.

Please take all precautions necessary to keep your money safe. Inglefest is a very safe and friendly festival, but we cannot take responsibility for your cash.

music & entertainment
Every year Inglefest relies upon volunteers and fundraisers to ensure the smooth running and success of the event. Volunteers working on the front desk, car park and bars are all important to us. If you are interested in volunteering in exchange for a free ticket, or would like to get involved in any shape or form, please get in touch with us via our contact form (please see the menu) - we look forward to hearing from you!
We have plenty of camping space for you so if you wish to camp make sure you grab yourself a weekend camping ticket - day passes do NOT include camping.
Portaloos, urinal units and water points will be available around the campsite and festival area. Sorry - no showers! To provide camping we must ensure sufficient toilet facilities as well as water sources, as well as waste disposal resources which is of cost to us (this is why we must charge a little bit more).
Unfortunately we do not have provisions to charge mobile phones. However if you feel you need your device across the weekend feel free to bring battery packs, as to the best of our knowledge there is suitable mobile data connections. Inglefest is not responsible for the care of your belongings so please do so at your own risk.
In the event of an emergency, please locate the nearest steward or team member who will assist you.
There will be a variety of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages on sale, most of which have been lovingly produced by local breweries such as Forgotten Orchard and Tiley’s Brewery.
We discourage bringing your own alcohol onto the site. In return, we promise to keep the prices affordable. Purchasing drinks from our bar is what helps fund the festival and ensures sustainable growth year-to-year. Moreover, it also supports the independent businesses who put time and love into their product, and have themselves supported our endeavour here at Inglefest these past few years.
Under no circumstances is glass allowed onto the site. As such, alcohol stored in glass bottles is strictly prohibited and will be confiscated. This is for the safety of everyone involved. Throughout the year the site is also home to horses, for which broken glass can be extremely dangerous.
We will have a range of different food stalls throughout the weekend, all provided by local, independent businesses. If your business is interested in having a stall at Inglefest, please contact us here.
Disposable BBQ’s or any other open flame cooking device are prohibited, as these can be a serious fire risk. Feel free to bring some of your own food with you that does not require such equipment. We recommend bringing reusable water bottles that you can refill at one of our water points (it’s very easy to get dehydrated at a lovely summer festival!)
food and drink
We will have a security team on hand at all times over the weekend. In the case of an emergency please get in contact with them either in person or through any of the help desks, which will be made clear upon arrival at the festival.
Everyone attending Inglefest is here to have a good time. We encourage all behaviour to be respectful of others’ enjoyment of the festival. Bad behaviour, harassment or damage to property will not be tolerated and dealt with accordingly. We hope to welcome you into our family and wish you a wonderful time at Inglefest.
