Oxfest is a three day family-friendly, independently run festival celebrating all things local, from the music acts you will be watching to the beer you will be sipping. Activities and workshops will be taking place over the weekend to promote outside and interactive play amongst the little (and big) ones, while those who prefer to soak up the August sunshine can enjoy open spaces to catch up with friends over a cold one, or two…
So Sussex will be joining us at Oxfest this year offering a dedicated artsy and craftsy area and there will two yoga classes each day, which festival goers can sign up to. Including a special kids yoga class running on Sunday. There will also be brilliant stories told by Jon Mason throughout the weekend for everyone to enjoy.
A jam-packed music schedule will run on the Wilf Rogers stage all weekend, with everything from indie, folk and alternative rock to 80’s disco and afrobeat. Oxfest aims to provide a diverse line-up of brilliant local talent, providing a platform for smaller and lesser-known musicians to perform. Check out the line-up here.
Over 40 different Sussex beers and ciders
Sticking to its beer festival roots, Oxfest is very much still a chance for us to showcase the amazing beer and cider scene the South East has. there will be over 40 to choose from, which is why a weekend ticket might be a good idea! For those more partial to a Mojito, fear not, the cocktail bar returns, as does a fully stocked soft drink bar.
The food tent
Our much-loved BBQ also returns for another year where slow-cooked delicious meats from our own farm will be served alongside fresh salads and hopefully, copious amounts of sunshine! A fish and chips stall is a new addition to the food offering at Oxfest and this year we are also thrilled to announce that Smorl’s Kitchen will be joining us and serving their INSANE vegan dishes to our happy festival-ers!
