The Music Barn Festival was set up with the intention of raising money for a Northamptonshire based palliative care hospice.  And we still donate to a number of local charities via the profit from our bar sales – so please give generously!!


The festival features a wide variety of music and activities, featuring some established acts rubbing shoulders with unsigned bands, from a broad spectrum of musical genres.  At the event you could hear a great local indie band on the up or catch a well loved rock act, get down with some old skool hip hop or get sweaty in the Slade stage with some upfront house music.  You can be as busy or as chilled as you want to be

The recent pandemic and the enforced closure of the events and festival industry has not blunted our enthusiasm.  Stay tuned to our socials for updates on incoming events.

There are "house" bars at the festival serving cold beer, cider and real ales at very reasonable prices.  We run a drink token system (£2.50 a token).  All alcoholic drinks are 2 tokens and non-alcoholic drinks are 1 token.  The money raised behind the bar is donated to our chosen charities so there is no need to bring your own.   You are allowed to bring alcohol into the campsites, but only alcohol purchased at the bars can be drunk at the stages.

(please note that token prices are subject to change at short notice)

The food stalls are all selected for quality and again make a contribution to the festival so please use them!  You will find a wide variety of food stalls at the event and include vegan/vegetarian options as well as taking into consideration individuals allergy concerns.


In order to keep our waste from the event to a minimum we have a reusable cup scheme in place.  Cups can be bought for one token at the start of the event and then reused throughout the event.  The cups are not refundable but you can use them at all Music Barn future events or at home. 


Please remember the Music Barn festival is held on privately owned farming land.  Please respect the owners and organisers of the event and dispose of any litter in the rubbish bins provided.


This is a glass free site.  Please do not bring any glass bottles or drinking vessels onto site.
