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.
We have already announced some of the fantastic acts we have lined up for 2014 - The Blues Band, The Men They Couldn't Hang, The Young'uns and Jez Lowe - just for starters.
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.
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 are also plans for a Festival market and great children's activities during BAMfest so watch this space for more details soon.

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 as it will be even better.
