There are loads of great music festivals out there up and down the UK. In addition to the bigger festivals that you all know about there are all manner of smaller, boutique festivals boasting amazing line-ups and superb atmospheres.
One of those is North Warwickshire’s Warton Music Festival. The festival’s roots are firmly grounded in the local Midlands music scene and was first founded by a collective of music enthusiasts back in 2007. It has since showcased some of the finest bands and solo artists – selling out its original venue every time. And, following a particularly successful event last year, the festival has announced it will be back for more in 2018.
Last year saw the festival relocate to a new 15-acre spot at Bentley Farm, and evolve into a three day event with on-site camping and two stages filled with awesome new British bands. These included the likes of Stone Broken, Grumble Bee and Go Primitive, alongside Scribble Victory, Quill and the Antarctic Monkeys, plus a whole host of local acts bringing big noise to the quiet Warwickshire countryside.
The first set of acts for next year’s event have just been announced, and includes hard rock heavyweights Scream Serenity – dubbed the UK’s answer to Black Stone Cherry – and south London’s nine-piece ska/reggae band The Dualers.
Warton Music Festival returns to Bentley Farm on 20-22 July 2018. Early bird tickets are on sale now, with a weekend ticket plus camping costing £30 and a day ticket just £10, while under 14s get in for free.
