And over the last ten years music lovers and young people from across the UK who have travelled to Queen Elizabeth Country Park have been treated to incredible sets from home grown bands of all genres, rocking out on one of our stages.

"It's a great day out not just for young people but for families of all ages, with so much to do and see, all in the beautiful setting of beautiful Hampshire countryside. With not one but 3 stages of music all day, a high adrenalin 'activity zone' jam packed full of brilliant free activities, including the brand new addition of a zip wire for 2016, backstage acoustic sets from some of our billed bands, artist signings and a whole host of on site traders and community stalls this year we're pulling out all the stops to bring you the biggest and best Butserfest yet."
