One of the UK’s premier Bluegrass, Americana and Old-Time music festivals.

The Festival is held every summer at Kemble Airfield (Cotswold Airport) in Gloucestershire. Now in its 31st year, Didmarton is hosting another awesome line-up of International and UK artists.

It’s one of the UK’s quirkiest Festival sites, with vintage bi-planes flying overhead and the guys and gals from Ogri Motorcycle Club serving a fantastic selection of real ales and ciders at good prices. Experience three days of sensational music with main stage, open stage, slow jams and old-time sessions. Bring your instrument and join in the jam sessions, especially the ones around the popular late night bonfire.

During the day we have traditional dance displays and free instrument workshops to learn some traditional bluegrass or old-time playing. A second open stage is for new or in-experienced players. Saturday night we square dance with a live band and get up Sunday morning for a bit of Gospel!

The Festival market has instrument and vintage clothing stalls, beautiful textiles and jewellery, musical knick-knacks and of course the festival merchandise tent. Catering is our army style cookhouse in a sit-down marquee, hot crepes, pizza oven, real coffee and ice cream.

Whether you’re new to the Festival or a seasoned attendee, Didmarton has something for all music-lovers (inc. children). Best enjoyed by camping-over the weekend, we even have hot showers!

Don’t forget your instrument - Double Bass, Fiddle, Banjo, Guitar, Mandolin (or any other!!)
