Dentdale Music & Beer Festival

Dentdale Music & Beer FestivalDentdale Music and Beer Festival is a free-entry, community-led, not-for-profit festival that aims to provide entertainment for all the family.
The main stage marquee is on the Festival Field in Dent village where you’ll find terrific real ales and locally sourced, home-made, freshly cooked food.
As well as giving adults access to a wonderful time, there is a separate area on the Festival Field dedicated to younger visitors. Throughout each day, parents have the opportunity for their little ones and young adults to experience their own festival fun, with games, live entertainment and the chance to learn new skills (or develop existing ones) with craft demonstrations and participation.
In the two village pubs, music of all varieties rings out throughout the day and into the night.
Add to that street performers in the cobbled roads – clog and traditional dancing and other individual and group musicians (sometimes impromptu) – and you’ll have a totally unforgettable experience.

2020 Festival

The organising committee of the Dent Music and Beer Festival have announced that the event will not take place in 2020. They are however planning to organise a festival in 2021. In a letter to volunteers in October 2019 the organisers have said the postponement is to, “Allow time for the committee to work on some issues that have been identified following this year’s event and to review the organisation to ensure that we have a robust structure to enable us to take the Festival forward as an annual event in the future. We will also be planning for the next Dent Music and Beer Festival in 2021”.
The committee thanked all the volunteers who made the event possible and have asked for ideas or thoughts that may help in planning for future festivals.
