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 into 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.
