2017 ACTS CONFIRMED

The best of British and European Bluegrass.

Continuing our tradition of bringing the very best Bluegrass Acts to Essex, our headline acts this year feature the very best of Bluegrass from the Czech Republic and the UK. Bluegrass tradition in the Czech Republic dates back over 70 years, and the highly acclaimed G-Runs ‘n Roses, previous winners of the prestigious European Bluegrass Band of the year will be headlining on Saturday night .

Bands confirmed so far are listed on the flyer below. Please get in contact with Rich or Mags via the website or Ffacebook if you’d like some copies of the fiyers.

Time, Place and Cost

The dates of the festival are confirmed as 13th – 16th July 2017. The location is unchanged from the past two years: Bulphan Village Hall, Church Road, Bulphan, Essex, RM14 3RU.

Ticket prices have been maintained at 2016 prices. This is challenging, as the uncertainty in the currency exchange rates impacts directly on the cost of bringing top international acts to the UK, as we have tried to do. However, with careful planning, we are holding advance ticket prices at £45 for a weekend ticket. As this includes camping, all concerts, workshops and evening jams, this represents fantastic value for money.

The Bands

Continuing our efforts to bring the best international Bluegrass bands to the UK & Essex in particular, we have some fantastic bands this year, including G-Runs & Roses and the Hot Rock Pilgrims. Check out the band page for more details. Of course, there will be your hosts, the Chadwell HillBillies, along with many others. Watch out for further annoucements here and on our Facebook page.
