Valley Fest

Chew Valley Lake, Somerset

Friday 31st July - Sunday 2nd August 2020

New to Wicked Events for 2020, we're excited to be involved with Valley Fest, the South West most mouth-watering festival. Set in a beautiful lakeside location, just south of Bristol. From delicious food to brilliant live music, Valley Fest has it all.


Now in its 7th year, Valley Fest aim to put on the best party ever, including top UK headline acts and some of Bristol’s best-known culinary talents to cook you up a feast. Valley Fest is your chance to see the big names you’d expect at much larger festivals in an intimate setting.


At the heart of the festivals ethos is the story of founder, Luke Hasell. Luke set up Valley Fest in 2014, in memory of his parents who died too young but knew a thing or two about how to enjoy life.


Their love of sharing good times and tasty eats was the inspiration for the friendly, food-loving festival you can experience today.


We look forward to welcoming you to the party. See you by the lake!
