We had a blast at CarFest 2017 and enjoyed some epic music. Have a peak at just a few of our main stage highlights. #tbt The Jacksons Busted Seasick Steve Melanie C Sophie Ellis-Bextor Manic Street Preachers Jess Glynne KT Tunstall ... See MoreSee Less

How do I apply to play at Carfest next year, we're a Southampton based Soul Band?

Had such an amazing time in the sunshine at CarFest South this year! I'm now a believer in "people change" LOVED Rick Astley! Had a great boogie "You wouldn't get this from any other guy . . . . "

Want to do it all again x Janet Wardle

    We had a fabulous weekend …thank you 😁

  6. Lovely weekend but please, please sort out the chairs on stage for next year. Can we have standing, then blankets (no reservation allowed) and chairs right at the back. Then everyone can see the stages and get on and off stage safely. I can’t bear to think what would happen in an emergency. People built fortresses and took up way too much room. Festival love is a bit lacking #selfishfest

    IT was fun!

  8. Thank you to everyone who donated for a Dream Ride – we have never been so busy and with your help, we raised over Β£59k for Pudsey πŸ™‚

    Lots of lovely food to choose from and a great atmosphere. Shame there was far too many people we couldn’t see a thing on the track and everything for the kids to do was fully booked. The main stage was dangerous with all the chairs, beach buddies and volume of people, we decided to leave before any of the music. I’m sure you made a great sum of money for charity but felt organisation and safety to be lacking a bit.

    Had a fantastic weekend. The only thing letting it down for me as a first time attendee was the prices of the food. We were going to bring the children but glad we didn’t as the food and drink was so high priced it really would have bankrupted us. Great time was had and looking forward to next year.

    Had a fabulous weekend let down by 3 things. Price and quality of awful booze-especially lager. It was just undrinkable. Also toilets. Not enough and not cleaned often enough – by Sunday morning many were unusable ..

    Another amazing Carfest weekend. Congratulations to all involved in the organisation and to everyone who worked so incredibly hard during the weekend to raise such a huge amount of money for children in need. 😎

    Thank you for a great weekend!! πŸ‘

  14. Did anyone go for the whole weekend. Which day was best in your opinion? We only went on Saturday and thought the music acts were poor (with the exception of Cold Place and Seasick Steve). Everything else was brilliant. Just wondering for next year whether there is a better day to go??

    First time we came. We had the most amazing weekend . We have 2 small children and could not complain about any thing . Very well organised great music every night , great food and the children loved . We will definitely be back next year. Great job to everyone ❀️

  17. This was our first CarFest we had a Great weekend helped by the weather. Entrance needed more staff on Friday as long queues. Would be good to have marked walkways into the arena which are lit at night to allow for easier access. This was put in place to the disabled stand on Saturday and Sunday as exiting on Friday in a wheelchair was dangerous. Overall we loved it and will attend again. πŸ™‚

  18. Totally agree, but did have a great time weather was amazing but better toilet facilities needed, after all we are paying a lot of money for the weekend if I wanted to slum it I would have gone to Reading festival, this was our 4th time it was so much busier and so I feel it has lost a little of its charm but still loved it

    Sunday definitely best for us x

  20. Great weekend but agree with some comments, it’s got a bit too big & greedy & suffered a bit as a result. Very long entry process for day trippers on Friday meant they list half the day. No shade anywhere and lack of chill out spots. The walk from car to campsite was knackering, a 4K round trip which most of us had to do more than once. Showers much better than I expected but toilets needed more regular attention. Didn’t have any real issues with the main stage but witnessed loads of place marking with chairs etc in the early morning which is very irritating. Food/drink expensive. We loved it though & will be back (when I’ve recovered!).

  21. Appreciate a lot of the previous comments , but as festivals go this must be one of the cleanest and best organised I have seen. saying that the rubbish bins were just not man enough for the job, and it was only individuals good consideration that kept it tidy.
