Vale Earth Fair 2017
Come along and enjoy the sounds of local and overseas acts for a day of glorious music with the perfect views to match – a mini Glastonbury by the sea!
Now in its 41st year, the Vale Earth Fair is the longest running music festival in the Channel Islands. Over the years we have grown both in size and stature, always trying to bring music acts over to treat festival goers while raising money for humanitarian organisations. The event is run solely by passionate volunteers who collectively bring together 6 stages and over 50 diverse acts covering multiple tastes over the course of 12 hours on the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend.
Having brought over such acts as Asian Dub Foundation, Jungle Brothers, Buzzcocks, Roots Manuva and Skindred, we aim to make each year better than the last. Guaranteed to have special treats in store, we also bring together some of the tastiest vegetarian food in the island from our local chefs.
We aim to please the whole family, setting the festival in and around the historic Vale Castle (dating back to late 13th century), while providing not just an eclectic mix of music but also live arts and entertainers, and a children’s corner for the kids. Having been part of the community for 40 years we pride ourselves on allowing opportunities to anyone who would like to get involved.
The Dance Zone, Breaks n Beatz, and Pixie Stage will feature an array of DJ's, both local and imported.
As well as all the music there will be the usual bars, stalls and food tents, chill out tent and kids area.
