Winsterfest started in the Peak District at The Miners Standard, Winster which is how it got its name. The first one was in 2012 when I asked a few friends to join me for a social weekend and we had a couple of bands. My friends enjoyed it so much the next year I made it bigger with more bands and a marquee! Each year got bigger and better. In 2016 it moved to a new site in Burton on Trent but in 2017 we decided it should be in the Peak District and so found a much bigger site, we had such a great time we are returning to the Peak District.
Plenty of room for camping. Dogs are welcome and there is a play park for children. The views are outstanding and there will be 3 nights of live music. You cannot get a better value weekend anywhere!!
For those that do not camp there are Bed and Breakfast nearby.
