Small but perfectly formed and relaxed music festival set on owners farm in Wellow which is near Ollerton in Nottinghamshire.
WellowFest is the creation of husband and wife team who, back in 2014 decided to host their first festival at Chapel Farm in Wellow. Since then the festival has grown year-on-year and in 2016 Sir Bob Geldof’s band The Boom Town Rats was the headline act. In 2017 the festival featured over 40 bands playing across 3 days with a wide variety of genres including, Pop, Rock, Punk, Country, New Wave, 80s Classics and many more.
Opening the 2017 festival was Emma McGrath, an upcoming female soloist from Harpenden who at just 15 years old won the PRS Foundation’s Lynsey de Paul Prize for Song Writing. Other greats such as Toyah Wilcox, Hazel O’Connor, The Blockheads, and many more.
The headline act for Friday 13 July 2018 is Steve Steinman’s Vampires Rock so look out for a hilarious rocktastic show. 2018 will be the 5th year for WellowFest which maintains its roots as a family-friendly festival with a chilled-out and relaxing vibe. We have approx 40 national and local bands over the weekend with a great mix of interesting trade stalls, good food and wide range of drink. Kick back and enjoy the best of the English countryside whilst listening to an eclectic mix of sounds. For those looking to stay for the whole weekend take a look at our camping page for details of the accommodation available on-site.
Great for festival novices with posh loos, no mud and idyllic setting.
