Didmarton Bluegrass Festival

  • Didmarton Bluegrass Festiva Kemble Airfield Nr. Cirencester Glos. GL7 6BQ (map)

Didmarton Bluegrass Festival is one of the UK’s premier Bluegrass, Americana and Old-Time music events, held every summer at Kemble Airfield in greenest Gloucestershire. Now in its 30th year, Didmarton 2018 is hosting another awesome line-up of International and UK artists.

Kemble Airfield is one of the UK’s quirkiest Festival sites, with vintage bi-planes flying overhead and the guys and gals from the Ogri Motorcycle Club serving a fantastic selection of real ales and ciders at good prices. Experience three days of sensational music on the Main Stage and while late nights away around the bonfire with some really great jam sessions.

The Festival market is great for perusing, with instrument and vintage clothing stalls, beautiful textiles and jewellery, our army style cookhouse and sit-down marquee, hot crepes, real coffee, musical knick-knacks, and of course the festival merchandise tent with CDs and T-shirts galore.

During the day we’ll have traditional dance displays and workshops, and if you like what you see, you can dance the night away with a Saturday night square dance with live band. Visit different areas of the site for bluegrass and old-time instrument workshops, gospel singing, slow jams, and old-time session areas.

Whether you’re new to the Festival or an seasoned attendee, Didmarton has something for all music-lovers. And on top of all that, we’ve got real toilets and hot showers! Hurrah!
