WHY RHYTHM FESTIVAL?
An introduction from Rhythm Festival founder, Jim Driver
Rhythm Festival is unique. If you’ve never been before, I think you’re in for a treat. We are not trying to clone Glastonbury, Cropredy, Reading or Isle of Wight, Rhythm Festival is happy just being Rhythm Festival. A small and friendly event centred around sensational music, great food and good drink, Rhythm Festival is big enough for you to spend the entire weekend having fun and still not have time to do everything you wanted to!
When it comes to music, don’t expect the latest fad or ‘in-thing’, just the best roots, blues, rock, reggae and folk we can find. There’s live music on three stages, comedy, a solar-powered cinema, digital funfair as well as a real 1950s fairground, kids’ entertainment, organised children’s sports and workshops, a therapy zone and more late night entertainment than you can shake a stick at. Should you have a stick you’d want to shake.
Rhythm Festival is supremely lucky to take place at Twinwood Arena, a near-perfect countryside site with the luxury of permanent facilities such as toilets, walkways and trees. And just four miles from Bedford railway station.
Over our first two years, the attendance at Rhythm Festival has doubled and at the UK Festival Awards, we were been nominated for more categories than any other event, regardless of size. Why? Because it’s a festival that cares about the important things: the festival-goers.
Our philosophy is simple: to misquote ‘Withnail & I’, we want the finest entertainers from around the world, we want them in Clapham (Beds) and we want them over the weekend of August 29th-31st.
Rhythm Festival is all about people. Please feel free to join in!
You’d be very welcome…
