Avebury Rocks Festival

Live and local music

Another rocking event enjoyed by all!

This year’s Avebury Rocks festival has been another successful fundraising event raising over £11,000 for Prospect Hospice! This brilliant achievement would not have been possible without the amazing artists, sound crew, vendors, stall holders and, of course, our fantastic volunteers, so thank you all so much! A massive thanks also goes to everyone who supported the event by buying a tickets and braving the poorly-forecast weather for the weekend.

Despite the morning downpours for the unfortunate people setting up camp, the sun shone for us throughout most of the afternoon. Even through the intermittent drizzle spirits remained high and our Avebury Rockers continued to revel in the rain.

We’ve had lots of great feedback and numerous requests for artists’ information, so we’ve kept all of the line-up details and performers’ bios on this page along with all of the brilliant photographs taken on the day by our volunteer photographer Grahame Bradfield.

A bit of background…

Avebury Rocks was the inspiration of local-born musician Nick Harper as a way to give something back to Prospect Hospice who provided care for his late mother. Nick, with the help of David Uttley and the original organising committee, set out to find a talented and willing group of musicians who would happily perform in a field in Wiltshire, next to the famous standing stones of Avebury.

These days you can expect an eclectic line-up of local and national artists over two stages on one weekend – keep checking our page for line-up announcements and more!
