It’s safe to say that CarFest was another hit this year.
The festival has been raising millions for children’s charities all across the UK over two festival weekends since 2011. Festival Founder Chris Evans has just announced plans for a bigger and better CarFest in 2023, bringing North and South events together to create One Big CarFest at Laverstoke Park Farm for the August Bank Holiday. Registration for Early Bird Tickets is now open here.
On the Sunday at Lavestoke Park, over 75,000 visitors were spoiled for choice, as Cinch presents CarFest had a massive seven festivals in one.
The UK’s largest fundraising festival welcomed guests over August 26-28 for the most incredible and fun-fuelled weekend with everything from food and music to cars and celebrities aplenty.
After a fantastic day watching the cars on the track, catching some interviews at the star fest stage, and enjoying festival fun, I managed to see all the artists on the main stage: Natalie Imbruglia, The Horne Section (who not only brought the music and laughs but also got the whole crowd involved with a TaskMaster themed game and a giant game of twister), Bjorn Again, Steps, The CarFest Supergroup (headed by The Feeling and joined by Freya Ridings), actors Max Harwood and Rob Brydon, a DJ set from Basement Jaxx; and ending the weekend on a massive high, Paloma Faith.
