Camp fires , Real toilets and hot showers. We have 4 Music Stages, as well as children’s entertainment and art workshops.

All the attractions of a big festival without the crowds or huge price tag. Come along and enjoy the Fun!

We are looking forward to seeing everyone who has ever been to Hope Festival , come together for what is set to be another fantastic music extravaganza ! So if you have ever been to Hope, or never been to Hope, then come along this year for what is set to be the big party to start the summer! 

Tell your friends and help to make this the best Hope ever.


Hard to believe it’s 22 years since we first pitched our tents on a Welsh hillside at “Hope” to celebrate a wedding. We could never have known then that this annual celebration would still be running, stronger than ever, 22  years on.

Since then, and now at our third and and by far best venue yet, we have been entertained by literally 1000s of performers and welcomed countless new faces.

Every year Hope brings new exciting upcoming acts to the party and a chance to meet friends old and new.


We welcome anyone who would like to spend a few days in good company being entertained throughout.

The fully licensed bar sells a superb selection of spirits, real ales, lagers, Guinness and wine, while the coffee and juice bar ensures everyone gets going in the morning. There are food stalls – selling foods for every taste,everything from Burgers to Jamaican Jerk chicken to Vegetarian feasts and home-made ice-cream.

Come with the family or a group of friends. There’s plenty of space for comfortable camping. There is easy access on and off site and the car parking is very close to the camping areas, so none of that lugging heavy kit around.



Generally the first big camping event of the summer, Hope is an easy-going fun weekend, once you have experienced the festival, it will become a regular part of your summer diary.


We will be hosting new bands, favourites and surprises from our combined Hope musical heritage.
