Is this the first time you’re thinking of going to Alfresco? Are you wondering what to expect? Well, we’re an obliging bunch, so here’s a little bit about us and the unique experience our festival offers…

From small foundations, we’ve built a big reputation as a top-tier UK festival with an unprecedented family-friendly atmosphere. Some of the world’s best DJs, bands and acts have graced our stages over the last few years and we’re really proud of the line-ups we’ve pulled together, but what makes Alfresco really unique is the crowd and the setting.

Now is the summer of our disco tents

You can soak up the sounds at the stunning stages in beautiful woodland, or next to sun-dappled lakes. Then, when the sun goes down, the outdoor stages take their bow and the party heads indoors – into the majestic circus big tops where the atmosphere is always electric.

The stages are all easy to find and within a short walk of each other. It cuts down on the lost hours trying to find your friends, and means you won’t miss half a set trudging your way across an entire farm!

Once you find your spot in the woods or by the lake, the chances are you’ll dance the day away and immerse yourself in what’s on offer. Before you know it, dusk falls, daylight turns to moonlight and the lights and sounds travel between the dancing crowd. It’s an experience you won’t forget in a hurry.

We are family

And as for the people… We feel truly blessed with the crowd at Alfresco Festival. Everyone gets to know each other and after four days you already feel like lifelong friends. Younger and older party-people, families, and 16 Loop networkers all unite under the trees.

We proudly cater for everyone – families with young kids, people who turn up with teenagers in tow and those who don’t have children. It works because we’ve taken the time to make sure we get the balance right. We encourage the children to take part in whatever way they want while you get to party with your friends enjoying the music and atmosphere safe in the knowledge that they’re nearby and having the time of their lives.

Small festival, large groups, no worries

Futhermore, group bookings are becoming more and more popular. We can arrange for large groups to camp together and help shape the experience for whatever you are celebrating. With stages featuring disco, funk, house, techno, reggae, Balearic and even some spoken word, there’s something for everyone!

Raising the bar

From cocktails to craft ales, Pimms to prosecco and cider to sambuca, we’ve got whatever you need at our bars and if booze isn’t your bag, we’ve got a fantastic selection of non-alcoholic drinks as well. We’re also lucky enough to have an incredible range of food stalls, with Asian, Mediterranean, West Indian, Southern American BBQ, Italian cuisine and more.

See you there!

Come and join us for four days of wonderful escapism in the most stunning of settings with the most amazing people! For 2021 we have moved back home to Colebrook Lakes, the site of our first festival. Those who came to our early events will be amazed how the lakes and woodlands have been landscaped into something even more magical.

The line-up and the setting are sublime, but it’s you that makes the event so special. The Alfresco Festival team awaits you and we’ll see you in the trees.
