Held in the picturesque village of Penn Street in Buckinghamshire – just 26 miles from central London – PennFest is a two-day family-friendly music festival which was headlined in 2019 by Suede and Craig David.
PennFest has grown from its humble beginnings as Penn Festival in 2011 – a village festival attracting around two thousand people from the local area – into a hugely respected fixture on the UK festival circuit, able to attract big names across many different musical genres and draw a crowd of 10,000 per day. Since re-launching as PennFest in 2015, the festival has sold-out every year.
PennFest offers much more than just an impressive array of performers across its three stages. The site has been intelligently curated with high quality food and drink, shops and activities. There is a global artisan market with a selection arts based stalls and creative workshops, plus multiple bars and a wide range of quality food outlets, selling dishes from around the world
Camping is available on site, offering the perfect opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the Chilterns. There are free hot showers in the camping area, as well as glamping and pre-pitched tents.
PennFest is a fun and safe festival environment, suitable for the whole family. Children are well catered for with plenty of activities to keep them happy in the Kids’ Kingdom, including arts and crafts workshops, street entertainers and performers and a circus workshop where they can learn circus skills. Many of the children’s events are free.
