Keswick Mountain Festival Returns To West Cumbria
Your ultimate outdoor weekend is just around the corner. Keswick Mountain Festival, the biggest of its kind in the UK returns to west Cumbria this June bringing with it an exciting mash up of music, adventure and family thrills.
Held in its usual location at Crows Park in Keswick, Keswick Mountain Festival, which last year attracted more than 20,000 visitors is set to be bigger and better than ever.
Taking place between June 8 and 11, a few weeks later than it usually does, the five day festival as usual promises a packed programme of outdoor activities, guest speakers, and family friendly activities.
Being described by organisers as a ‘great weekend of live music for the whole family’, the Festival Village will play host to two evenings of live music from headliners KT Tunstall and Cast while more acts are set to be announced nearer to the event.
Supporting CAST, The Peatbog Faeries will also play a set on Friday 9 June. The Faeries, who first performed at KMF in 2014 and proved rather popular, are returning for their traditional appearance, and promise to get visitors dancing with another high tempo folk set.
Over the years, the festival has built up a strong reputation for the wealth of events and activities for all ages and abilities – from families taking their first steps into adventure to seasoned outdoor enthusiasts and athletes.
Visitors can dedicate their whole weekend to the festival, taking on a new adventure each day including runs, open water swimming, sportive, and triathlons. And, after working up an appetite, Keswick Mountain Festival offers a wide variety of tasty treats to fill up on.
The 2017 Festival will be the 11th year the event has been running, and it continues to grow and develop year on year inspiring visitors from across the UK. Featuring a unique mix of outdoor activities, music, and entertainment, it’s no surprise that the event has become a firm favourite in the calendar of locals and tourists alike.
