Underneath the Stars Festival has become an award winning shining light in the summer festival calendar thanks to it's relaxed & friendly atmosphere coupled with a large helping of down-to-earth northern charm. Now in its 7th year, this 3-day family festival sets itself apart with an astonishing mix of quality live music, fantastic array of foods, crafts, workshops and stalls, stunning views, cozy campsite and hands down THE kindest and most helpful volunteer steward team in the galaxy.

Set in the beautiful rolling hills of South Yorkshire, Cinderhilll Farm provides a perfect setting for a stress-free weekend. The festival is nice and compact, making it ideal for families to get amongst the action whilst never being too far from their base of operations, be it a tent, motorhome, caravan or luxury boutique camping spot... you can even drive your car on to the festival campsite and park right next to your pitch all weekend! - minimum effort :-)

Underneath the Stars Festival provides spectacular entertainment for all ages including lively street-art performers, music, dance & craft workshops, storytelling and oOdles more. The festival hosts a superb bar with a prime selection of real ales, wines and spirits from a range of local producers (at reasonable Yorkshire prices!) and the choice of yummy street food is absolutely tongue popping! 

Kicking off the star-studded line-up on Friday is Grammy nominated, singer songwriter Paul Carrack. Celebrating 20 years of phenomenal output as an independent artist, the Sheffield born artist has carved a niche for himself where blue-eyed soul and pop rock collide, promising a formidable live experience. His voice is instantly recognisable on numerous hits including “How Long”, Squeeze’s “Tempted”, Mike + The Mechanics “Living Years” and “Over My Shoulder”.

To honour Yorkshire Day on Saturday 1st August, Barnsley’s own nightingale, Kate Rusby will take to the stage, performing traditional folk and stunning self-penned songs. Yorkshire born and bred, Kate is known for her wistfully pure singing voice, good humour and the down-to-earth warmth of her live performances. In recognition of her outstanding contributions to folk music, dance or song, Kate is the latest recipient of an English Folk Dance and Song Society (EFDSS) Gold Badge.

Widely regarded as one of the most brilliant songwriters of her generation and an iconic female artist, Suzanne Vega will appear on Sunday. Her work, including hits such as “Luka”, “Marlene on the Wall” and “Tom’s Diner”, is as utterly distinct and poignant today as when she first made a name for herself. She is a masterful storyteller who observes the world with a clinically poetic eye.

Underneath the Stars festival is a community interest venture with inclusivity and community at its heart. The team recently enjoyed a week of celebrations as they won Small Festival of the Year and took home the prestigious Judge’s Award at the National Outdoor Events Association’s (NOEA) Awards ceremony on Wednesday 28th November 2019. They also gained an Attitude is Everything Silver Charter
