DUB PISTOLS TO HEADLINE – SATURDAY 11th JUNE 2016
The reggae-breaks-jungle mashup and gangster-swaggering festival favourite is arguably the biggest act we have ever signed as headliners. Spanning an 18 year career in music Dub Pistols has worked with heroes like The Specials, Madness, Busta Rhymes and Gregory Isaacs. Front man Barry Ashworth started the band because he loved the Happy Mondays – and never looked back, morphing the band into a mighty reggaematic bass-driven, super-tight live machine that has steadily won fans from Glastonbury to Bestival and across Europe. The Happy Mondays tweeted recently that the Dub Pistols were the best live band they’d seen in years.
With over 25 other acts to be announced soon our annual ‘Party in the Park’ is planned to be bigger and better than ever in 2016. Read more...

On Saturday 6th June 3,250 festival-goers were welcomed into Arlebury Park for the sixth Alresford Music Festival. That’s around 30% more of you than 2014, over a thousand more of you to see 25 bands perform and to enjoy the sun and all the festival fun.
We’ve had lots of fantastic feedback as music lovers, campers and artists alike all enjoyed the great atmosphere throughout the day, the variety of things to see and do around the festival and of course the great live music. It was an infectious mix and being able to stay over in the new campsite allowed more of you than ever to enjoy the festival ‘spirit’!
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 6pm on Friday 10th June (Friday camping is FREE!), and the campsite closes at noon on Sunday afternoon. PLUS hot breakfasts will be available on the festival site on Sunday morning. Please note we can't allow campervans or motorhomes on the campsite, the festival campsite is for tents only. For more information on motorhomes and campervans please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. There is plenty of FREE parking opposite the festival site and in our overflow car park a short walk away.
We are now pleased to announce that we will be offering FREE shuttle bus services from both WINCHESTER train station and ALTON train station, 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 local ‘walk to’ festival to the local area. With trains running late into Saturday night, this FREE service really opens up the festival to a much wider audience.
