Carfest news: BIG NEWS CarFesters! We’re busily working away to make CarFest bigger & better …

Latest update from Carfest

BIG NEWS CarFesters! πŸŽ‰ We’re busily working away to make CarFest bigger & better for you in 2018.

Who was listening to BBC Radio 2 & the The Chris Evans Breakfast Show this morning? He might have just mentioned the 2018 dates πŸ˜€

Because they were such great venues, we’re heading back to Bolesworth Estate 27-29 July for CarFest North, then swinging down to Laverstoke Park Farm 24-26 August for CarFest South.

They’re going to be brilliant weekends and we can’t wait to help raise more money for BBC Children in Need.

Get planning, July 2018 will creep up on you quickly!

Plus loads of lovely rain and mud! Still fabulous and see you next year!! 🀞🏻🀞🏻🍾

Uma paradinha para descansar as pernas e recarregar as energias πŸ˜‰ Amazing memories!! We can't wait for CarFest 2021! πŸ’• This is my moment from Carfest last year πŸ˜€

Dancing in the rain. Looking forward to Carfest 10 next year!πŸ˜πŸ˜β›ΊπŸŒ…

We had a blast at our first Carfest last year. Even with the mud and 🌧

Mud when we arrived at 1pm but we had an amazing dayxxx

Carol FS Anna Hughes Amy Cooper we didn't get to see many of these! πŸ˜‚

Need Bruce for the North 2021!!! Come on Chris you can get him !!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Texas were awesome as always πŸ’• Everything was fantastic!!

We had to leave was gutted 😭

Weather weather weather β˜”οΈβ˜”οΈβ˜”οΈ

This is our moment from Carfest 2018 πŸ˜€ Fabulous πŸ’•

Deffo need McCartney next year to celebrate 10 years although he does tend to do very long sets!! He could use the fireworks for Live And Let Die, everyone singing Hey Jude, loves charities, he would be perfect. Yeah I agree that on a video he does sound old now but having seen him do a 3hr set live in Glasgow in December 2018, I beg to differ, breathtaking live!

Dean Clamp we was there with the mud x

Karen Davies What a fab weekend, despite it being very wet πŸ‘Œ

Melanie Reynolds Martyn Reynolds one more vino and I may have been tempted although the thought of having to shower and doing the walk of Chanel and mud shame may have been to much β€οΈπŸΎπŸ˜‚ happy memories ❀️🍾πŸ₯°πŸ˜‚

Allison Sedgwick not sure I’m missing that mud! X

That is exactly where we we're stood till the very end...haven't missed that this year but that's all😟😟😟

Clare Richardson it really was a wet weekend 😱

Yeah then went to the nice vip showers while we had little respite and little hot water. So hard done by CE.

Brilliant! πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

  1. Emma Morris says:

    Please don’t make it bigger, more than enough people there

  2. Will Robinson says:

    James, Cheryl – Here are the dates for next year.! South is better as you get BH Monday to recover afterwards!

  3. Elaine Dunn says:

    I will make sure my waterproofs are dry for then

  4. Lucy Stevenson says:

    We’ve been day festers for the last 3yrs CFN but it’s getting rubbish. Will try for CFS next year. Much better acts because presumably cheshire is too far away?!

  5. Alan Kemp says:

    Stop making it BIGGER!! It’s fine. I know it’s for charity, and we can’t go back to the intimacy of the first one, but surely 40K is big enough???

  6. Clive Wheeler says:

    Not bigger,,, different music acts would be nice, I love Texas but, Texas, Sophie Ellis bexter , beautiful south are getting boring every year….

  7. Rob Mansfield says:

    Is bigger always better? The sound stage area was much more crowded this year. My 13 year old reduced to tears by abuse from audience members when only trying to wend his way to our seats.

  8. Nick Bradshaw says:

    Not a fan of bolesworth. Oulton Park was better layout

  9. Ian Fox says:

    The South this year had far too many people as it is, add another date if need be, bigger is not always better!!😫

  10. Charles McVey says:

    I can’t believe people are selfish and only thinning about themselves. “Don’t make it bigger. Too many people” More people make more for the charity as we heard this morning. First time at CFN and loved it. Previous year couldn’t get tickets. Not everyone gets a chance. People put in a lot of work to make it more enjoyable. Maybe CF Cornwall but would love CF Scotland.

  11. Nigel Portlock says:

    We enjoy CFS the way it is. But if it does get bigger, would that mean bigger bands will be tempted to play? Keep the steam fair, wigwam stage together and put the flying seagulls project in the same area

  12. Kathryn Wooding says:

    Two additional venues maybe one in Scotland and one in Ireland would be a better idea than increasing size capacity.

  13. Jackie Morris says:

    Does bigger mean more people or more entertainment or both?

  14. Lucy Thorpe says:

    Don’t make it bigger!!! Put on more venues or dates! Will loose intimacy and family friendly feel! Not sure we will go again if bigger. First couple of years definitely better. CFS parking and exiting was so much better this year though on Saturday…..they have finally got that bit sorted!

  15. Peter Lee says:

    Went this year for the Manics… Would never go again.. staff were terrible. And Manic Street Preachers beneath The Lionels and Rick Astley…. really? A covers band and a guy with two hits and had to fill his set out with foo fighters covers. Joke

  16. Debra Webb says:

    Wasn’t impressed this year. We have supported Carfest every year since it started and the same old acts are getting tedious. There were so many more people this year but they hadn’t increased the facilities accordingly, so spent hours queueing for everything. By the evening you just could not move around the site to get drinks and food as people were packed in like sardines. I know it’s for children in need but you still have to make it enjoyable or people will not go. We left early this year because we had had enough. Maybe more dates and venues rather than packing more people in?

  17. Ruth Fergyson says:

    It’s the same old bands & stands. Needs a shake up / rethink rather than making it bigger. Expensive too, runs into the 100s of pounds. The loos & showers are shocking. Always gone north. Might try south in 2018 but then that’s it for me. It’d be easier to just donate to CIN direct.

  18. Chris Ruggles says:

    It hasn’t been the same since the Red Barrows were dropped from the line up. I miss their crazy tomfoolery. Handsome chaps too.

  19. Paul Fowler says:

    Been to every Carfest North won’t be going again , it getting far to big and its getting the same year after year , it a shame really . The better way would be to do more smaller festivals around the country , Bolesworth is not really North 😑

  20. Jane King says:

    One thing car festival team sort out the toilets went to Carfest North they were disgusting spolit it for me and friends who went. Spoke to the site manager I think Joanna said they would be improved only think that’s putting us off going again.

  21. Sharon Young says:

    I would also love to see CarFest coming to Scotland! Or at least a bit closer to us….we went to CFN for the first time this year and loved it but it was a very long journey to get there.

  22. Kirsteen Davies says:

    Can’t believe how many people are moaning, simple option – don’t go if you are not happy! We saw no difference with the increased numbers at south this year, we had a brilliant time.

  23. Alan Beesley says:

    Does not need to be any bigger needs to be better…..just can’t bring myself to watch bloody Texas for the umpteenth time. And if one more person mentions the charity guilt trip once more…..😑

  24. Becky Allen says:

    Can we have the children’s stuff, like the flying seagulls and craft stuff back near the wigwam tent. I was nice before to be able to listen to music and grown up stuff while entertaining the kids. I felt this year the kids stuff was out in the middle of no where, with no bar or music. Not must fun for us adults.

  25. Rod Evans says:

    Carfest north ( cheshire) is ideal. Stunning views,over looking north wales mountains. Sunset is stunning when it’s not raining πŸ™‚
