Nearly There!

Vantastival Nearly There! VT KCurrams chillin3


In just a few days we will open the gates to Beaulieu House and welcome you all to join us for the eighth installment of Vantastival!

We’ll be up and ready for you on Saturday morning, with our Box Office kicking things off at 10.30am. There will be no access to the site on Friday so please don’t arrive a day early, as you will be turned away.

We’re teaming up with Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles again this year and have a whole host of new and exciting features for you to enjoy over the weekend. We have two brand new stages – the Glasshouse and Backwards late night area – both jam packed with musicians and DJs to keep you going until the wee hours. Along with all your old favourites and a riveting line up, we think this is going to be our best year yet!

Don’t forget the Volkswagen Campervan Cook-off! Our favourite cooking competition is back and will take place at 4pm on Saturday near the Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles Centre in the Main Arena. This is a hotly contested competition with a trophy and VW goody bags up for grabs. This year’s cook off will be MC’d by Today FM DJ Phil Cawley!

Make sure you also visit the Firestone Music Station for some brilliant music from up-and-coming local bands, and a nice chill out area to relax in that sunshine!

Important festival info – please read!

Our beautiful venue Beaulieu House is home to green lawns, shady woodlands and blossoming gardens and we want to keep it that way.

PLEASE BRING WARM CLOTHES. Even when the weather is great it gets very cold at night!

Barbecues are permitted in the campsite but must be raised off the ground. Please don’t use disposable barbecues directly on the grass as it scorches the earth.
