Updates

  • 28th April 2020
    • Buddhafield Festival 2020
    • 9-13 September
    • Holding to nothing whatever

Many of you have been waiting for an update on this year's Buddhafield festival. We appreciate your patience. Thank you for the messages of support and love that we have received. We’re ready to confirm what many of you have already guessed.

Buddhafield festival cannot go ahead in July this year. However, we all need something to look forward to and it would be good to gather on the land later in the year if, and when, it's safe to do so.

Our new plan is aimed at 9th-13th September. Our event will be on the same site, with the same numbers and the same awesome people coming together. We can't know for sure whether this will be possible - it’s all pending guidelines on mass gatherings.

We hold the aspiration and hope you're with us.

  Alcohol, Drugs and Festival Participation

All Buddhafield events are free from recreational drugs and alcohol. We believe this is one of the things that makes the atmosphere at our Festival special. A great many people come to Buddhafield because that’s our stated aim and a value we actively promote.

This applies to the crew as much as ticket holders. All crew (many of whom are on site for several weeks during set-up) are expected to strongly set the tone of the event. This policy applies to “legal highs” as well as illegal drugs and we reserve the right to ask you to leave if you can’t respect this.

People tell us that they didn't know they could enjoy a festival without their recreational drug of choice, so if this would be a new way of experiencing a festival, then why not give it a try! Whatever your views on recreational drugs, though, please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us, then we expect this value to be respected and adhered to.
