Planning Vantastival 2018

We are now busy planning for the 2018 festival and as our valued patrons, we want you to have your say. What did you like or not like at the festival in 2017? Would you prefer a 2 or 3 day festival next summer? If you haven’t already done so, please take a few minutes to complete our survey and give us your opinion.

Vantastival will return to Beaulieu House & Gardens on the June bank holiday weekend 2018 and the first tier of tickets will be on sale from 1st December. This year children’s tickets will be available for advance purchase online for the first time, and all minor registration forms can also be completed online. Minor tickets will only be valid when accompanied by a parent holding their own ticket, and tickets for 13-17 year olds will only be valid with a parent who holds a weekend camping ticket. There will be no day tickets for 13-17 year olds for the 2018 festival. As our numbers grow, we will invest in improving the overall festival experience for everyone and will continue to showcase the very best of Irish music.

As always, we will have an open submission process for our 2018 line up. If you are a musician and would like to play at next year’s festival, stay tuned to our website where the application process will open on 1st November!
