About Backwell Festival

What do when you have the perfect, intimate amphitheatre, stunning views and a strong, creative community? Well, you make the most of your assets! Nestled in the Somerset hills lies Backwell Festival - a secluded cultural festival looking global, but loving local. Adored by festival goers and with a growing reputation as one of the region's best hidden-gem festivals, Backwell should definitely be on your hit list this summer. The great news? This hub of activity comes to life just twenty minutes south of Bristol city centre! From July 6th until July 8th 2018, this little pocket of North Somerset plays host to a veritable feast of art, thought and food. Resonating to its own beat for an entire weekend , Backwell Festival happens to be celebrating its 10th anniversary this year - so we're pretty confident that 2018's festival promises to be the best yet. From humble beginnings, Backwell Festival has grown into a much-loved independent music festival in an idyllic setting. If you've not visited Backwell before, expect something genuinely eclectic: spectacular dance and drama, wonderful gigs and music workshops, spoken word corners, political debates, foodie demonstrations and author talks, too. They raise money for great causes, care about global issues and put their community first ... think a pint-sized Glastonbury, friendly, forward thinking and properly proud of its roots. This year, their theme is "Ocean". Raising awareness and engaging festival goers with the critical issue of plastic pollution through art, theatre and discussion, Backwell's "EcoHub" will be hosting some truly inspirational green pioneers (Greenpeace, Plastic Oceans UK, City to Sea, FRANK Water, Surfers Against Sewage and Sustainable Backwell) who'll pass their knowledge and passion to festival-goers. Since its inception in 2009, Backwell Festival has raised £20,000 for Backwell Junior School, and £5000 for international causes. This year they will also be supporting Bhopal Medical Appeal as their international charity - so you can rest assured that you'll be doing your bit whilst having a great time.
