New Family festival launches on August 30th.
Now we know we have Broughton Party In The Pines on August 9th catering for the Indie lover and the hardcore ravers but it is an over 18 event and more adult rated. We also get local Fake Fest every year on Winterton showground.
What is different about the new Slate Festival? Well it’s cheaper than Fake festival for a family day out and fake fest mainly uses cover bands. Slate Fest is providing an affordable day and over night stay for families to enjoy.
If you and your family want a close to home day out and a night in a tent then Slate Fest won’t set you back too much with reasonably priced tickets and 1 child under 10 free with every paying adult.
The Line Up So Far:
COLDPLAY TRIBUTE (COLDPLACE) \ SAINT HARLOT \ THE STARKINS \ RAMBLE GAMBLE \ VAN HOOLIGAN \ JAMES SUNDERLAND COLLECTIVE \ DEAD SENSE \ ONE MORE MILE AN HOUR \ SAM WRIGHT \ MEGAN LOWLES \ JAMES BULL WITH MORE ACTS TO BE ANNOUNCED.
To add to the family fun there will also be:
- Festival Face Painting

- Inflatable Games Area (eg., bungie run, rodeo bull etc)
