Blisscamp is a reinvention of Blissfields, an intimate festival for all the family in the heart of the Hampshire countryside. It takes place from Thursday 5th June to Sunday 8th July 2018 (Sunday now has music and Sunday night camping), at Woodmancott, in Hampshire, in the South of England.
"One big difference we’re looking at with Blisscamp is a more inclusive arena and as such we’ll have no fence between camping and stages in 2018, we’ll be mixing up stalls and stages amongst craft and family areas – we know this will be something to really add to weekend and can’t wait to invite you onto the site."
The first acts are confirmed, all for Sunday, including Dub Pistols, Norman Jay, and Too Many T's.
For all of the details please see the line-up page.
Tickets are on sale, currently priced as follows:-
adult weekend: £95 plus £10 Litter Bond deposit
youth weekend: £80 plus £10 Litter Bond deposit
child weekend: £15
Expect music and craft workshops for adults and kids plus other assorted fun, an ale festival, a film festival, great food and festival stalls.
Blissfields have a scheme whereby children can attend the festival without missing any school. Due to the number of activities in the Angel Gardens arena, under 13's can officially count Blissfields as off-site learning, meaning that they won’t be marked as absent while at the event. The festival will provide all you need to make this happen, including an Absence Request Letter and a 'Blissfields Passport'.
Angel Gardens have skilled educators, play workers and therapists all of whom work together to provide immersive and educational activities for the children that enter the space at Blissfields. While they are not a school, they are educators and are firm believers that education can exit the classroom occasionally. All activities and workshops are designed to fulfil educational learning aims and objectives that can be used to enhance the education of all the children who attend the festival.
Angel Gardens have produced an absence request letter to hand to a school or educational body to allow off site education of a child (if under 13 years). By using the classification of ‘educated off site’ in the register, children are legally able to be absent from school on the agreed days. This term is a common and well-used method that schools use when children are experiencing learning outside of school and many schools welcome the chance for their pupils to experience these situations as it enriches not only their lives, but the school as a whole.
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your ticket reference number and organisers will send a letter for your school.
As always, Blissfields has a theme each year and this year's is 'The Bizarre'. Organisers are, "once again creating a playground from the imagination for you to discover across the intimate site. With brand new art installations planned to bring the bizarre to life, this corner of English countryside will be a vibrant backdrop to one of the biggest celebrations of… odd.."
Fun for kids
The place for little ones is packed with award-winning fun, games and activities that the whole family can get involved in, with storytelling, acrobatics, a fire show, and all sorts to entertain all day long.
A recent addition to Blissfields, this gorgeous woodland area is where the bigger kids can enjoy activities including tie-dying, wood carving, chainsaw carving, with a blacksmith and leather workshop among other things.
