Location

Festival venues don’t get much more scenic than this - right in the heart of glorious West Yorkshire.

Once again we’re back on our 125 acre rural farmland site on the outskirts of Meltham, Holmfirth, situated on the northernmost fringes of the Peak District National Park.

With stunning views over the Holme Valley, and with the Wolfstone Hill Climb start and finishing line marking its southern boundary, this is a Yorkshire Festival through and through.
