Attendees are welcome to camp and make the most of a weekend of music from blues rock to bluegrass, country blues to New Orleans, acoustic to soul and gospel. The festival which is self funded through a combination of camping, festival merchandising and local business sponsorship and advertising attracts 1000 s of people into the shops & pubs of Upton over the festival weekend, promoting both the town and local area whilst providing a weekend of free entertainment.
The camping is very important to the festival as, without the revenue it generates there would be no festival. Prices for camping have not yet been announced.
