There’s a new festival in town this summer and it’s being held at the Market Harborough Showground. Hot on the heels of Download, Leicestershire is continuing to keep it real this festival season with Texfest.
There’s some big names playing including Example, Tinchy Stryder and The Fratellis. Yet weekend tickets are only £75.60 for adults, with reduced prices available for students, teens and free places for children under 12. This makes it one of the best value festivals around! Camping tickets must be purchased on top of this though, and of course VIP upgrades are available. VIP access also includes front row viewing area and a chillout garden space, which sounds pretty awesome to me!
There’s a lot more than 3 days of live music and DJ sets on offer. Texfest has paired up with LCFC, the Leicester Riders and the Northampton Saints who will all be putting on activities and challenges to keep you occupied. There will of course be plenty of street food available in the arena too.
It’s been a tough year for festivals, with a number of much loved events being cancelled in 2018. Smaller festivals like Grillstock have disappeared as the organisers ‘ran out of time’, whilst Portsmouth’s Mutiny Festival was cancelled as a precautionary measure after the terrible news of the drug-related deaths of two people occuring on the first day. It’s clearly a difficult time to run a sustainable festival so I wish the Texfest organisers all the very best with their inaugural event!!
