Rebranded from the Upton Festival, the Sunshine Festival (28th-30th August) has been a fantastic success over the last five years and this year is going to be no exception, in fact the addition of the new Food Village is going to make it even more successful.
With food as diverse as its music, and vendors chosen for their reasonably priced fare, you can expect to feast on flavours of the Caribbean, traditional fish and chips and freshly made pizzas, but enough about the food, what a line-up of music there will be.
Internationally renowned stars along with local talent will be gracing the stages from Friday to Sunday. On the main stage you can expect the likes of the great UB40, ABC, Bad Manners, the Real Thing and a UK favourite, Suzi Quatro who is celebrating fifty years in the music business, amazing.
Stage 2 will host bands such as Riff Raff and Blind Lemon and the Sunflower Stage will host Woo Town and Skewwhiff amongst others. With Paul Daniels and the Chuckle Brothers on the Variety Stage this is truly a family event not to be missed.
If camping isn’t your thing then the Abbey Hotel, only twenty minutes’ drive from Upton, is the perfect base for your festival weekend. We offer you a superb range of accommodation and cuisine at competitive prices; don’t miss our fantastic Sunday lunch, what better way to finish off your visit.
