Excitement is building for next year's Valley Fest as the first wave of acts have been announced.

Renowned as the 'best-tasting music festival' of the South West, the event will feature Sister Sledge, Sophie Ellis Bextor, Tinie Tempah, The Feeling and The Skids from August 1 to August 4, 2024.

Valley Fest, which is set around Chew Valley Lake, near Bristol, is a firm family-favourite, offering "the best view at any UK festival".

Marking its 10th anniversary, the festival promises an exciting line up including Tankus The Henge, Nubiyan Twist, The Nextmen, and many more, with additional artists to be revealed next year.

The festival pairs music and food, allowing guests to enjoy cooking demonstrations, masterclasses, and an assortment of street food.

Luc Hasell, Valley Fest founder, said: "From pop to rock, disco to DJs and everything in between, everyone needs to GET ON MY LAND and celebrate our big birthday.

"Packed with wholesome fun, families - you’ll find something for your toddlers, teens, parents and grandparents."

A unique feature of the festival is the Alchemist Playground, a haven of activity for children and teens.

The playground is crafted using recycled military materials, with the Woodland Tribe assisting children in constructing the play area.

Guests can also anticipate the return of the Afterburner, a stage derived from a Rolls Royce jet engine for night events.

The stellar night show features multi-million-volt bolts of electricity lighting up the dance floor from the Lord of Lightning.

As part of its entertainment offerings, the festival promises educational activities centred on organic and regenerative farming practices - a core value of the festival, hosted on a regenerative farm.

Tours provided by the Community Farm and regeneratively farmed food showcase these sustainable practices.

The festival is relatively accessible, located 9 miles from Bristol and Bath.

Anticipate a side-splitting comedy line up too, details of which will be disclosed soon.

Lastly, don’t forget the enthralling Somerset sparkle and whomping festival tunes.

Weekend tickets are priced at £144.99 (plus booking fee), and can be purchased in instalments at www.valleyfest.co.uk.
