Welcome to BAMfest
BAMfest 2014 will take place in Bedale, North Yorkshire between Friday May 30 and Sunday June 1.
North Yorkshire's premier acoustic music festival is going to be bigger and even better than last year's phenomenal success. And we are delighted that T& R Theakston have agreed to be our main festival sponsor for 2014.
We have announced some of fantastic acts for 2014 - The Blues Band, The Men They Couldn't Hang, Martin Carthy, Babajack, The Young'uns and Jez Lowe are among the headliners but we will also have more than sixty other performers from all musical genres over the Festival weekend
There will be plenty of room for everyone to come and stay as we have secured a superb additional campsite. Camping will be available from Thursday to Monday. There will also be an earlybird concert on the Thursday night, headlined by Marie Little.
This year we will have a great new venue - the Festival Marquee - situated on the Big Sheep Little Cow site. It will seat around 300 people and will the focus for concerts throughout the weekend. We are also planning extra concerts during the day and on Sunday. There will also be a plenty of room for sessions and singarounds, either on the site or in the town. We will also be running the BAMfest song-writing competition again during the Festival.
There will also be a Festival craft market and great children's activities during BAMfest, as well as a new Festival bar - serving excellent Theakston ales - and a great food menu available across the weekend.
Online tickets are on sale now with the option to pay by installments when you book. Pay 20 per cent and then three monthly payments. We have also launched day and evening tickets to complement the weekend ticket.
Thank you to everyone who supported us in making 2013 such a memorable event. Without your support our festival wouldn't have happened. We had brilliant weather, a brilliant campsite, and brilliant music - what a combination! We hope to see you again in 2014 when it will be even better.
A special thank-you to all our sponsors for helping to put Bedale - and BAMfest - on the map!
