Welcome to Alt-Fest THE largest Alternative Festival in the Universe!

Alt-Fest is about more than just music, with art, workshops and is a fully immersive experience. Not just a few tents in a field like so many other festivals. Fully themed and set in a beautiful greenfield location near Kettering UK. That said, musically we have a stellar line-up with over 180 bands.

See the current announced line-ups HERE with more bands and more headliners still to come!

Alt-Fest will boast 5 days of camping and 3 days of live music, with over 180 bands spread over 7 festival zones. As well as dedicated Metal, Gothic, Industrial and Steampunk stages, Alt-Fest will host an eclectic main stage line-up that will be topped by the MASSIVE headline acts that YOU VOTED FOR.

MORE THAN JUST A MUSIC FESTIVAL
AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE

Want more than just music? You've come to the right place. Alt-Fest will also have a full size circus big top with all day circus, side shows, burlesque and theatre. Plus art, workshops, activities and many, many attractions including a dedicated children's zone - kids 12 and under are also free at Alt-Fest! Watch the bands, lose yourself in the enchanted (and themed) woodland, camp on site or stay in local accommodation, and with a massive shopping village as well there will always be something amazing for you to see and do at Alt-Fest!

WHAT IS ALT-FEST?!

Alt-Fest is and will always be a crowd led event, for the fans by the fans, the first festival of its type ever and the LARGEST Alternative Festival in the Universe! From our humble beginnings we have always worked with you and our Alt-Festers to deliver the festival YOU wanted. With the activities, facilities and line-ups YOU asked for. Our initial seed funding in April 2013 was also crowd led via Kickstarter.

With your support we raised and smashed 205% of our objective (£61,762). This initial and massive support from our early supporters enabled us to book our intial line-ups and secure the festival site etc. From there we have further secured major independent funding and investment; and forged some amazing partnerships to ensure Alt-Fest's growth and success.

We now boast one of the best if not THE best festival locations/sites in the UK and a wealth of experience within our Alt-Fest team.

Alt-Fest's production is being handled by SWG, one of the largest and most respected festival production providers. The Southwest Group work on many festivals, year in year out, and are also responsible for the production and build for 9 of the stages at Glastonbury Festival, so we know we are in VERY safe hands. All aspects of the festival site and infrastructure are being provided by proven industry suppliers from security to sanitation (and beyond) to ensure your festival experience is second to none!

More detailed travel information can be found HERE.

WHERE TO STAY?

1/ Camp on site for up to 5 days from 10am Thursday 14th August right through to Tuesday 19th at 10am. You may arrive and leave at anytime, so you may prefer to just camp from the 15th-17th of August.

2/ Stay on site in luxury accommodation. Not quite so keen on 'basic' camping or simply don't want to bring your own camping equipment? You can book a pre-built tent HERE from Tangerine Fields OR book one our on-site luxury Glamping options (Yurts, Bell Tents or Tipis) HERE.

3/ Stay in a local Bed and Breakfast or Hotel accomodation. Just because it's a festival doesn't mean you have to stay or camp on site. Stay locally and travel to the site each day. More info on local accommodation HERE

4/ Day tickets will also be available nearer to Alt-Fest, come for the day and see the specific bands you want to watch.
