On Saturday 11th June over 3,500 festival revellers were welcomed into Arlebury Park for the seventh Alresford Music Festival. That’s around 300 more people than the previous year and they came to see over 25 bands and to enjoy a day full of chilled fun, free family entertainment and of course amazing music, which this year was more diverse than ever.
The increased numbers has meant even more money has been raised for charity and worthwhile causes; £2,000 has already been donated to Winnall Rock School www.winnallrockschool.org and £3,000 to Key Changes Music Therapy www.keychanges.org
There’s been loads of fantastic feedback from so many which is always appreciated. Festival goers, campers and artists alike really loved the whole day’s vibe; the relaxed and happy atmosphere, the bigger space, the increased amount of FREE things to do in the dedicated family arena, the extended festival village and of course - the amazing bands and artists. It was an infectious mix, which embodied the AMF spirit of a family ‘party in the park’, but with exceptional and varied music across four different stages.
Camping is available on the festival site, Arlebury Park, which is set in beautiful countryside overlooking the south downs. Access to the campsite is available from 4pm on Friday 9th June 2017. The campsite closes at noon on Sunday afternoon, PLUS hot breakfasts will be available on the festival site on Sunday morning. There is plenty of parking in our main car park. This year we also have a motorhome and camper van site available just 600m away from the festival site (but there are limited spaces, so book early!).
We are pleased to announce additional FREE shuttle bus services now from both WINCHESTER and ALTON train stations dropping off only a minutes walk away from the festival site. We are delighted to add this environmental friendly service to the festival, and extend the ethos of a ‘walk to’ festival from the local area. With trains running late into Saturday night, this FREE service really opens up the festival to a much wider audience.
