BUSFEST NEWS - APRIL
We hope that you have had an enjoyable Easter weekend!
The festival management team have been beavering away the past few months, planning for our festival, and keeping up to date with the recent national dilemmas.
You may have noticed that many of the postponed events from the spring and early summer calendar are trying to re-schedule for this coming September - the traditional time of the year for the 'one and only' festival - BUSFEST!
With everything expected to be 'back to normal' way before then, and as The biggest and best VW Camper Festival in the World, it's anticipated that Busfest will be a very sought after destination after so many weeks of 'event drought' and uncertainties, so if you want to guarantee joining in the fun, make sure that you secure your place soon!
We can assure you that the Busfest Production Team thoroughly plans each years event, and always puts in place the necessary measures to protect the public and maximise safety, whatever the cause, and we always review our plans as any circumstances change. With this in mind (and with our 2020 Festival still 20 weeks away), we continue planning and preparing for our event, whilst at the same time closely monitoring all developments with the current situation as they arrive, and adapting if necessary.
This may necessitate us having to make a few changes to our existing plans here and there, we just don't know yet......but rest assured, you can rely on BUSFEST to be your 'Light at the end of the tunnel'.
We have another outstanding festival lined up for you again this year, so don't miss out on your chance to get hold of what will be very much sought after tickets!
You can book your BUSFEST TICKETS HERE;
With more attractions yet to be announced, here's a taste of what you can expect:
After the success of last years addition of a new catering area in the Chill Zone, we will again have our STREET FOOD VILLAGE at the festival this year. This is located between the Chill Stage and the Pamper Zone.
This is in addition to our two other main catering villages situated on Main Street outside Severn Hall, and Trade Village opposite the Sheepshed Stage. With everything from Fish & Chips, Hand made Pizza, Sushi, Vegetarian, Curry, Burgers, Carvery, Burritos, Paninis, Doughnuts, Mexican, to name a few......
We also have The Stockman's Restaurant over by the Avon & Wye Halls serving a full carvery and A la carte menu, and Food for Thought in the Severn Hall offering snack foods.

CamperVin will once again be serving you a variety of beverages from their collection of converted vehicles that are dotted around the site.
With over 300 trade plots, our Trade Village is by far the biggest of any of the festivals. It takes a day just to go round this part of the festival!
Bringing their unique style of mayhem to Busfest, we welcome back THE 2MEN. Keep an eye out for them - they'll certainly be looking for you! We will also be welcoming our wandering dinosaurs, who will be mingling amongst you.
