In three short weeks’ time, a new festival will be emerging in the Bedfordshire fields – and this comes in the form of the brilliant Fort Fest.

Focusing very clearly on emerging acts that are breaking through in the underground alt/rock scenes of the UK, the festival brings the likes of Lonely The Brave and Young Guns stepping up to the headline slots – and heroic rockers InMe finishing the Friday.

Other acts include this year’s 2000trees favourites Black Peaks, The Xcerts, Arcane Roots and Max Raptor – all playing alongside friends such as Press To Meco, EMP!RE and Eva Plays Dead.

As a brand new event on the festival circuit, Fort Fest aims for an affordable and family friendly atmosphere – with both food, tickets and camps catering for all:

“We’ve kept ticket pricing as reasonable as possible and there are no additional charges for camping or car parking. Adult tickets start at just £30 and you can spend the whole three days with us for just £65!

“There will be a variety of good food, drinks and stalls and there’s even a farm shop and cafe on site. So come along and have an awesome weekend of fun and entertainment with some fantastic bands at a sensible price!” – Fort Fest

This will be an event not to miss – so get down to Scald End Farm, Bedfordshire on the 2-4th September 2016. For tickets, information and contact visit
