Unfortunately, the Rockfield Festival has been cancelled this year
We hope to resolve this issues with the licence and site for 2016 and look forward to seeing you all then
The Rockfield Country Music festival is an annual 4-day event held over the first weekend of June.
The festival features more than twenty country music bands and artists. As well as having country musicians from the UK, we readily have country acts from around the world, too. In 2014, we had acts from Holland, Sweden, Ireland, Scotland, England and Wales. And in 2015, we already have performers from Mauritius, Sweden, Scotland, India, as well as all over England and Wales and some local, too.
The Rockfield country music festival is held down by the River Monnow, which forms the border between England and Wales. Rockfield is a small village 3 miles from Monmouth and equidistant between Bristol and Cardiff.
The event has grown steadily year on year since the first festival in 2010 which attracted around 1000 people. In 2012, around 3600 people went through the gates. (The festival was cancelled in 2013 due to ill health.)
As well as great music, the Rockfield country music festival also provides much Wild West entertainment for all the family. A majority of the attendees are country music enthusiasts and wear western dress much of the time - especially in the evenings when there are western dress themes, such as Native American, Gamblers, Saloon Girls, Mexican. Daily events include the fast draw contests, rodeo bull machine, line dancing lessons, and wild west re-enactment shows, prizes for best dressed and a nightly raffle. Many trade stands are on site selling authentic western items such as cowboy hats and boots, leather wear, crinoline dresses, and accessories. Day tickets and weekend tickets are available. There is plenty of free parking and free camping for all ticket holders.
Facilities at the festival include mobile shower unit, plenty of porta-loos segregated for male/female/disabled, food and drink wagons, water bowsers, and bar.
The festival is run by volunteers with any profits goin to the Victoria Eye Unit at Hereford County Hospital. We would like to thank all our sponsors for their support:
