The small family-friendly music festival returns for a fourth year to a natural amphitheatre in the Chilterns, showcasing established and emerging talent across three music stages. Festival goers will also be treated to the best of local food and drink, and plenty of entertainment for the kids and those who are young at heart.
"BerkoFest is all about quality and quirky music at affordable prices, and I think with this year's amazing eclectic line we have achieved that," explained festival founder Charlie Hussey. "It's also about loving local, and some of the monies raised will be supporting local charities including the Swan Youth Centre which again has its own music stage at this year's event."
James Walsh added, "I am really forward to playing BerkoFest. There’s a great line up of established and up and coming acts local to the area and beyond. Also did somebody mention carefully selected crafted beer? Lovely! See you there!"
