ABOUT UPTON BLUES FESTIVAL 2022
After two years of no UBF, we are so happy to be back in 2022, bigger and better than ever and celebrating our 20th anniversary to boot! NEW for the campers in 2022 - we are opening the campsite on Wednesday before the weekend, this way you can get pitched up early, get settled in and ready for the weekend, then you can chill & relax. Also NEW at no extra cost to campers we are not closing it until the Tuesday after the weekend, this way you can avoid the departing crowds because you do not have to rush to leave on masse Monday morning, you can take your time and experience the town on the Monday without the hustle-and-bustle of the festival crowds and then leave on Tuesday feeling stress free and relaxed. We are giving the Monday night camping option totally free, look at it as our Brucie Bonus!
The Upton Blues Festival committee are unanimous in being determined to keep the spirit of the festival alive, front and centre for when we can all get back together on the stages, in the campsites, the pubs and on the streets. The UBF committee isn't going to take the ravages of Covid 19 lying down!
All the bands booked in on all main stages who very kindly agreed to transfer their contracts from 2021 into 2022. We are again in partnership with Andy Loo's and will have the usual high quality toilet & showers with attendants available 24/7. Again new this year in partnership with Hobsons Brewery will also have the campsite stage, bar, restaurant and other fantastic stalls which will only be available to the campers, as well as this we will be offering a campers discount on the official program and official merchandise, we are also looking at other campers discounts to make available exclusively to you over the weekend. We have simplified our campsite pricing structure as well, it is now a straight £15 per person per night. Don't forget all the amazing music is absolutely free to watch, there is no entry charge to any venue or main stage anywhere in the town.
Directed by Frazer Sheppard and the backing music is written and performed by the fabulous Stone Mountain Sinners.
