Description

Voted Staffordshires Best Music Festival - Staffs Fest is brought together by Stafford based LR Partnership, a popular annual music festival that has already made its mark on the UK music scene attracting local, regional and national musicians and audiences from all over the UK. The festival which celebrates its sixth year in 2020 is held at Lower Drayton Farm, Penkridge near Stafford ST19 5RE

Having used a single large performance stage in the first three years to host all acts, this year the Main stage caters for Rock, Blues, Britpop, Glam Rock, Folk and Soul lovers. In 2018 they introduced a second marquee which this year will house Northern Soul DJs playing only vinyl. Staffs Fest 2019 introduced a third marquee which hosted Reggae Rockz 2019 production by Basil Gabbidon one of the founder members of Steel Pulse which hosted a mixture of Reggae, Ska, Jazz, Funk and 2Tone.

The festival is not one dimensional, in addition to the wide ranging live music on offer, there will be displays and workshops from local community groups including Bombay Jam, Balliamo Belly Dancers, Dance Nuvo and Stafford Salsa. There will be a range of food and drink vendors and retail stalls, clothing and ethnic outlets, whilst the beer marquee promises to never run out of beers and spirits throughout the weekend.

As befitting a family orientated music festival, provision is made for younger members with free access to Lower Drayton Fun Farm, which includes everything from animal feeding to adventure playground. As with previous years, LR Partnership are allowing all children under 16 free admission throughout the festival weekend and must be booked at same time a responsible adult.

The 76 or the 76A service run by Arriva bus from Stafford to Wolverhampton passes the festival site. Lower Drayton Farm has its very own bus stop at the top of the lane so just ask your driver to drop you off there. Once you are at the top of the lane its just a short walk down towards the festival site. Please take care as its a single track road so lookout for vehicles.

Both Stafford and Penkridge have train stations which you can then catch the connecting 76 bus service or a taxi to get to the festival site.


NB Lower Drayton Farm is an active and working unit so heavy machinery maybe coming down the tracks, also because the festival is situated in a field you may find some of the areas of the ground uneven.while we ensure your safety is upmost in our minds, we do not accept any liability for any injuries or accidents of any kind
