The Original Yorkshire Family Music Festival
1st & 2nd July 2022
Yes, we are back! After two years of shearing sheep, sowing the crops and polishing the combines, we feel the time is right to open the gates and let everyone come safely back in and celebrate the beginning of a new era in our history.
We hope we can have a party weekend the likes have never been seen before in this part of Yorkshire, and maybe make up for some lost time. We certainly have missed you guys over the last two summers and judging by the amount of messages we have received we believe the feeling is mutual.
Staxtonbury 2022, our twelfth, is going to be our best festival yet, after all we have had 3 years to plan this one, and plenty of experience to get things back to normality. With your support we hope to re-establish ourselves as the number 1 family music festival in North Yorkshire.
There will inevitably be a few changes to our usual format, but these will be made with your health and safety foremost in our plans. With our 24 acre site and limited numbers we plan to adhere to all the Government recommendations at the time for such large events.
The gates will be open on Thursday 30th June 2022 to allow campsites to get established and then the stages will be in full swing Friday / Saturday 12noon until 11pm. There will be some new bands who have been desperate to perform on our stages for the past few years, along with some old faces to get you back on track.
There will be plenty of entertainment for everyone besides the 22 hours of none stop music! We have plenty of varied international catering outlets, retail outlets, children’s entertainment and cinema, a disco, sports coaching sessions, small fairground rides, larger fairground rides including our magnificent big wheel, assault courses, climbing walls and inflatable’s galore! Please support them during the festival as they put a lot of effort in to make your experience one to remember.
The arena and the four designated camping areas (2x family 1x quiet 1 x mixed) are specially prepared. It is an idyllic site that is secure, flat well lit and most importantly sand based , which means we never have any problems with mud. We have 24 hour security and a small army of stewards who have been working with us since we started , and will only be too pleased to help with any problems or queries during your stay. Our reception office will be open daily at 8am and first aid cover will be on site during the showtimes (fri/sat 12noon x 11pm) but most of all we have as much fresh air, sunshine and scenery as a person can take in a single weekend. So come along and join Yorkshire’s number 1 family festival, you won’t be disappointed!
This year in particular we will be limiting the numbers and as in every year we will only sell advanced tickets. If ever there was a time to get your tickets early it really is now! Don’t miss out on this one off fantastic family music party weekend. If you are thinking about going to a festival this summer, then go to the best. Ask anyone who has been before and check out the footage of past festivals on Youtube and see for yourself.
Note. If for any reason the festival does not go ahead in 2022 we will do the same as we did in 2020, which was to refund the tickets and not to ask that you carry them over to the following year. So please get on to the ticket page asap and get your tickets booked before it is too late. Any queries please see our contacts page and follow the links, not Facebook.
See you soon!
