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 . . . . "

    Over a mile walk from the car park with a baby and a toddler. We’ve now been queuing to get in for 1 hour- not the best start CarFest organisers, please sort it out for future visitors …
    PS- I’ve attended CarFest every year since it started and this poor organisation makes me question whether we’ll be back next year.

    No problems tent up and coffee made.

  6. Traffic horrendous to get here and now have been in a queue to get in for an hour and still not even half way up. People fainting from heat. This is crazy and really badly organised. First and last time we’ll be coming.

    We have tickets for Sunday, never been before. Any tips to try and avoid the traffic/queues, what do we need to bring??

    Entrance from red car park security is shambolic over an hour in the sun with no organised queuing it was like a rugby scrum, children crying the organisers have seriously under estimated how many staff were required. Looking around you’ve obviously made it bigger and sold more tickets but not taken that into account. Shame as if it’s going to be like this next year we won’t be coming.

    Amazing weather CarFest south’ers. Better than us soggy Northerners. Have a ball!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽถ

  12. Will Hibberd remember our Carfest ?

  13. Overall we have had a good day but probably won’t come back next year….
    We queued for 2 1/2 hours in total (in car and on foot) with 2 young children towards the end needing the loo…
    And in the full sun in such a large crowd it got so hot. Young children and babies all around really struggling with the heat and several people around us fainted. There appeared to be only a handful of people swapping tickets for armbands and insisting they stick them on us, madness. A real shambles. Huge shame as we came because people had raved about the event.

    If only the queue had really gone this fast… an hour and 20 mins to get through security. There really were not enough people on the gates…

    Dreading coming on Sunday now after reading these! All public events have greater security than ever before so, for everyone’s security and peace of mind – I don’t personally mind waiting a bit longer to allow those checks to occur. But the organisation sounds like it needs a big helping hand to get people in and out quickly and safely. If it’s hot, access to water and shade etc. No idea what gettting in on Sunday will be like. We have to travel down from Cambridge and return same day as we couldn’t find affordable accommodation in the area for the family – and we looked upto 25 miles around CFS over the last few weeks. Bank holiday w/end didn’t help either!

    Had a fab time, great music BUT the traffic coming from Basingstoke was much worse than previous years and the 1.5 hr queuing to get a wristband was a complete joke and total lack of organisation, never experienced this in previous years, which also meant that the kids were way to late to get booked on anything -disappointing!

  20. Great day out but queuing to get in for 90 mins and then again for wristbands in the scorching heat wasn’t pleasant – kids missed out on some experiences as we eventually settled down 2hrs later than planned!!!
    Better organisation required for next year!!

    If the queue had gone this fast it would have been great but unfortunately after walking over a mile from the car park we took over an hour to get through the gates.
    In hot sun no fun. This was Friday, hopefully they have got their act together by now. Spoilt an otherwise great day.

  24. F onlythe queue had been that quick…we STOOD for 2 hours on Friday and no shelter for anyon… many little ones were suffering from sun/heat exposure
