Created in 2017 as the Festival of Beer, last year saw the festival relaunch as Stowaway, with a mission to deliver the perfect weekend antidote to the trappings of the modern world.

Festivalgoers can dance the night away in beautiful surroundings with internationally renowned musicians and DJs, with hidden parties, a woodland spa, wild swimming and canoeing, wellness and relaxation, kids’ activities included in the ticket price, plus artisan food and drink including craft beers and spirits.

Stowaway festival founder Duncan Wheeler said: “We relaunched as Stowaway last year because we wanted to take it back to the essence of what a festival should be about - joy, freedom and good vibes.

"We don’t want to rip people off so we keep our ticket prices reasonable and make the kids’ activities free on site. I honestly can’t wait to welcome old and new friends to this very special place.”
