Official lakefest 2016

Lakefest is a fairly new festival, which began as a music and cider festival, yet in its second year has booked big UK bands propelling it to the status of a full blown music festival.


Lakefest festival 2016


Lakesfest grew out from when Croft Farm Waterpark hosted its music and cider festival on April 9, 2011 It was attended by just over 1,500 people consuming 8,500 pints of cider. Bands including The Stages of Dan, The Roving Crows and The Wurzels starred. Classic West Country games like Welly Wanging and skittles were available to play with a prizes up for grabs. The feedback was so positive that planning went immediately into "Lakefest".
