Combining good food, impressive cars, a blend of music, and a wide variety of child friendly activities, the 3 day CarFest 2015 festival boasts something for everyone. The festival, which is set in two different locations, also contributes 25% of all ticket sales to its partner, BBC Children in Need. Find out more about what CarFest 2015 has to offer below.
The festival is split between two different locations – one located in the north and one in the south. Set in the north, the Cheshire event is being held on Friday 31 July until Sunday 2 August. Arranged by Chris Evans, CarFest North is set to host an impressive array of events this year.
CarFest North lineup
Hosted across three days, the current lineup for CarFest North is an impressive one. With 7 acts confirmed on both Friday and Saturday, and 9 set to perform on Sunday – the mix of indie, pop, soul, jazz and rock acts including Billy Ocean, Scouting for Girls and Will Young is enough to impress all festival goers, whatever their musical taste.
With cars the main focus of the festival, the Cheshire festival has an impressive range of events and shows on offer for those lucky enough to have snagged the tickets. Famous and performance car lineups, owners clubs, driving experiences and stunt shows make up just some of the vehicular entertainment this year.
Located in Oulton park, the Cheshire CarFest offers a variety of things to eat, from classic festival food and sweet treats to gluten free options, too. With a Sausage Rolls Vs Scotch Eggs competition as well, you can even discover some home baking or get in the kitchen and contribute to the festival yourself.
CarFest Hampshire is being held on Friday 28 August until Sunday 30 August, and is also set to wow crowds with a whole host of musicians, versatile food options and numerous car shows, events and activities.
CarFest South lineup
CarFest Hampshire’s lineup is just as expansive as its Cheshire counterpart. Having currently confirmed 20 acts over three day festival – from Seasick Steve the Paloma Faith, Jools Holland and Take That – there really is something for everyone. Music usually plays until around 10 or 11pm, meaning you can enjoy the atmosphere well into the night.
Similar to the north festival lineup, Hampshire CarFest will host a remarkable array of show cars, welcome more than 20 owners clubs including the Ariel Atom, Nissansportz and VW Cabriolet owners clubs, and will see motorbike stunts, a go kart competition and high speed burnouts. As well as all of these, CarFest South will also host a Classic Car Auction for festival goers to make bids on old school vehicles.
Being based in Laverstoke Park Farm, visitors can look forward to more than just traditional festival food from food trucks. With a wide range of food and drink crafted from some of the best small producers in the UK – you’ll get the chance to taste something a little bit different. Similar to the Sausage Roll Vs Scotch Egg challenge, there’ll be a Cakes Vs Pies bake off for those who are interested.
Both festival locations provide a vast and versatile festival for all that attend, with events and music for adults, children and families alike. To find out more, visit https://www.carfest.org/
