An annual well attended festival of folk and rock music held on the edge of the village of Cropredy, and run by Fairport Convention. The 2024 festival will take place at Cropredy near Branbury from Thursday 8th to Saturday 10th August 2024.

As is traditional, Fairport Convention will play on Thursday with a short welcoming set by the band's semi-acoustic line-up to open the festival with a marathon performance to close the festival on Saturday. 


The three most recent additions to the line-up (Tony Christie, Hannah Sanders & Ben Savage, and the Zac Schulze Gang) complete the roster.

Host band Fairport Convention will welcome festival-goers with an acoustic set on the Thursday as well as playing a two+ hour closing set on the Saturday night. This will be preceded by a surprise Special Guest.

As well as Fairport, other headliners include The Trevor Horn Band and Rick Wakeman with The English Rock Ensemble.

The performances are impressively diverse and chosen to appeal across genres and generations. Highlights include Big Big Train, Focus, DeWolff, Kathryn Tickell and the Darkening, Eddi Reader, Baskery, Black Water County, Elles Bailey, Richard Digance, Feast of Fiddles, Ranagri, Spooky Mens Chorale, SilverBlues.

It's a very friendly festival with great ales, no sell-out out to rampant commercialism, and no huge ticket prices.

Getting there

There is a regular service to and from the festival from both the bus and train stations.


Unlike many other festivals, here you can park your vehicle next to your tent. You MUST have a concert ticket for the day you arrive to camp or caravan. Space on the campsites is for concert goers only. If you wish to camp with friends or family you must meet up somewhere off-site and arrive together as spaces cannot be saved.
