We reckon it wouldn’t be the same without having an old console on the go. Reckon an N64 with 1080 Snowboarding should do it. Time Trial Challenge: Who is going to be the best of the festival?

Sowerby Bridge is a great town with a rich community spirit. An idyllic location with so many great venues all within short walking distance of each other. Easy to get to, both Bus and Train will drop you directly into the middle of the festival! You won’t have to go very far to find something for you. It’s all within easy walking distance and there’s an entire day to enjoy it in!

Don’t worry about a ticket, just turn up and have a great time! But if you happen to have some spare change along the way it’d be great if you could support the cause! We’re raising vital funds on behalf of Oxfam to support their life changing work around the world. Local music, global impact!

A massive thank you to our sponsors!
