The Cursus Cider & Music Festival Header

The Cursus Cider and Music Festival is a tiny, friendly, FUN grassroots music festival on the beautiful Cranborne Chase in Dorset. It takes place on the late May bank holiday, running into the start of the half-term holidays.

500 tickets are available for this "Grassroots, non-corporate, friendly and down-to-earth gem of a festival."
eFestivals review 4/6/19

We offer an impressive line-up of original live music for a small festival, including major headliners, international artists and the best of local talent. 25 eclectic acts play over three days and nights, with a dedicated DJ tent to keep you bouncing in between! Previous shows at Cursus include Skinny Lister, The Dreadnoughts, Ferocious Dog, The Rumjacks, Dutty Moonshine Big Band, Black Water County, Random Hand and many more.

It's all about making new friends, meeting old ones and forgetting about the boring things in life. This is made more accessible with our communal campfire and well-stocked cider bar offering affordable, cheaper-than-pub pints!

We welcome families, groups, solo adventurers, tents and live-in vehicles. However, this is a working farm field without glass, fires, or BBQs.

Day tickets are also limited, including one night's tent camping.

Join the friendliest small festival on the circuit, and make it a bank holiday to remember!!!
