Beautiful days is The Levellers own festival which they started to "offer not only the best in live music today but to re-create a community spirit that many events nowadays lack or choose to ignore. This event is about people young and old coming together and taking part in something that will be remembered for a long time." It's certainly succeeded in that aim, and has become one of the most popular festivals selling out year after year.
The dates for the 18th Beautiful Days are confirmed as from Friday 20th to Sunday 22nd August 2021 at Escot Park, near Fairmile, Devon, with gates opening on the Thursday afternoon.

Covid-19 festival entry requirements
The Disabled Campsite will have a named supervisor and team who will be based in an office at the campsite. The office will be stewarded 24hrs and will have information about the event, access around site, contacts and be there to assist with any queries or concerns you have during the event. They will meet and site everyone in the camping area as they arrive.
Organisers will do their best to ensure, in the event of wet weather, that information about alternative routes and/or assistance are made available for those in wheelchairs or with severe mobility issues to get to certain areas of the site.
The seated Theatre Tent features shows for children of all ages and adults with a programme including theatre, comedy, music, acrobatics, mime and magic, but with limited numbers it's best to get there early.
The Sunday theme for 2021 is SUPERHEROES! Your favourite superhuman character or real-life hero. Comic book characters, caped crusaders, the incredible and the admirable. Who will you be?.
As well as music there's street theatre, a healing area, lots of site art and sculpture, many children's activities in a large children's area in the centre of the festival, plus theatre, comedy, family camping, camping facilities, licensed bars from local company Otter Brewery, world food, craft stalls, fancy dress, a 'village shop' on site, and more. There is plenty of family camping close to the car parks.
Early entry Thursday
The gates are expected to once again be opening on Thursday to weekend campers. Gates will open to the car parks from 12 noon on Thursday and then the site itself will open from 2pm. Stages will not start until Friday afternoon but caterers, traders and bars will be open on Thursday. Festival goers must be off site by midday on Monday.
