Summer Breeze music festival offers family-friendly alternative

Date Posted: 13/04/2012

The Summer Breeze music festival in Wiltshire this July is an independently-run, family-friendly event that promises an intimate and inclusive experience for groups.

Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall will be headlining the main stage on Saturday; and funky soul rhythm and blues movers Vintage Trouble, hailing all the way from Los Angeles, will headline the main stage on Sunday.

The sixth Summer Breeze Festival will take place at Warren Farm, Liddington, near Swindon, on the 13th to 15th July. Over the two days 50 acts will play across 3 stages.

Tickets are strictly limited to 2,000 - a big step up from its humble beginnings of 150 people in 2006 with profits donated to charity. A variety of ticketing options are available ranging from £15 to £40 and children get in free.

There is plenty of parking if you make your own way there or group travel organisers can arrange for a coach drop off and pick-up. Camping is available for Friday and Saturday night.

Two party bands will play Friday evening on the bar stage to kick-start the weekend with the festival officially opening on the Saturday.

Family fun will be provided in a dedicated children’s area, including a new big fun art and craft tent where activities are offered at no cost on the day. There will also be puppet shows, junk building, pizza workshops, circus acts and plenty more to keep kids entertained.

Plus, you can enjoy more than quality music, with a variety of fine foods and a real ale bar. There will be a vintage market with quirky festival traders where your group can enjoy tea parties, fashion shows, make-up and hair styling workshops, not-so-risqué burlesque lessons and a strictly adults-only late night burlesque performance.
