With a history that dates back to 1965, this long-running 5-day music festival has been offering up fantastic music in the small village of Towersey. Towersey Festival is a celebration of musical roots and it takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend providing the perfect end to the summer.
It has developed significantly from the one-day event it was in 1965 and whilst it has folk at the roots it has become more eclectic inviting a wider range of artists from singer-songwriters to poets and acoustic sets to street theatre performers.
There is a children’s festival working in the programme too, to keep younger festival-goers interested.
We're very pleased to announce that Billy Bragg, The Wonder Stuff, Kate Rusby and Midge Ure are among the headline acts lined-up for the 52nd Towersey Festival.
Having announced their intention to split after over a decade together, Bellowhead will play their final music festival appearance as part of Towersey Festival, in their home county of Oxfordshire, on Saturday 29 August 2015.
