The richly acclaimed Acoustic Festival is back, with more acoustic excitement than you can shake a wooden guitar at. Situated in the grounds of the Uttoxeter racecourse, the atmosphere of the festival works in perfect harmony with the beauty of the surrounding countryside.

The Acoustic Festival of Britain is loaded with fantastic live music, great atmosphere, weird and wonderful acts, and even music and drumming workshops that invite a sense of community, as you learn how to play drums with complete strangers, and end up making friends through the experience.

There are Real Ale tents which overlook two of the stages, so you can sit and take in two gigs at once! There is a breakfast club held in a Massive Purple bus, the perfect way to cure the results of the previous nights real ale intake.

The atmosphere is alive and vibrant, with Morris Dancers perform as you walk around the festival, strangers coming up and serenading you, and plenty of activities that all the family can get involved with.
