Win tickets to Valley Fest!

We've got two adult weekend (with camping) tickets worth £220 to give away – what are you waiting for?

This is the festival where the spectacular views over the Chew Valley Lake (you’d never guess you were just 9 miles outside Bristol) are given a run for their money by the delish organic food, sizzling music and atmosphere on the shore. Set on an organic farm in Chew Magna, north Somerset, Valley Fest runs from Fri 4–Sun 6 August – and two of you lucky people will be enjoying the weekend there for free –  we’ve got two adult weekend tickets with camping (worth £220) to give away!

Now in its third year, Valley Fest was set up by farmer Luke Hasell in memory and celebration of his parents’ zest for life and love of good food, and it takes place on a community farm growing and selling organic food.  Food is big here, with a giant communal Midnight Feast on Saturday night and possibly Somerset’s largest picnic on the Sunday, cooking demos by top chefs, plus loads of stalls selling exclusively organic food and drinks.

You could just sit and stuff your face but there’s too much else going on for that. Live music on the main Lake Stage and the seven tipi Tipi Stage is an eclectic mix including Argentian-Swedish indie troubadour José González,  legendary London and festival clubnighters White Wedding, popsters Goan Dogs – and a psychedelic orchestra.

DJs spin their decks from a booth within an old fire engine set inside an electric corral of rave wagons called The Yard (you can learn circus skills or take part in a hobby horse gymkhana when they’re taking a breather).


Lots of sitting or lying down stuff too – facials and massages,  yoga, storytelling, poems, relaxing by roaring fire pits.

Unlike some other festivals, there’s no kids’ area set apart from everything else: you’ll find stuff for them to do – train a sheepdog, foraging,  DJ-ing, kid’s raves,  arts and crafts – all over the place.

Come and camp for the weekend (a tractor will take you up to pitch your tent) or just stay for an evening or a day.
