2018 will mark the 8th Big Green Cardigan Festival, some of you have been every single year and others are still finding out about us.

So what are we all about?

We just wanted to do a festival that we would like to go to. So what did we want to see?

Great Artists – No particular theme, it doesn't matter if we  haven’t heard of them, let’s discover someone new. 

Real Beer at sensible prices

Home cooked food at sensible prices

Plenty of clean toilets

No queues

No Dogs

No Kids

At The Big Green Cardigan tonight a blistering power blues trio commenced our evening’s entertainment. True to the festival organiser’s previous form this lot was chased away by a young alternative rock duo, closely followed by Belgian swing, aboriginal/Sussex fusion trance didgeridoo tracks with the very fine Eddie And The Hot Rods headlining. Sadly we had to leave before the Victorian music hall act (seriously).


The Big Green Cardigan 2018

will be held over the weekend of

7th -9th September 2018.



The Big Green Cardigan  runs two live music stages and unlike many events, Big Green Cardigan-goers can get to see all the acts, as the stages perform alternately.

Come along; enjoy the event and the music, and respect the musicians, your fellow guest and the environment. Chill, have fun, meet some new pals and relish in the beautiful place, which enjoys fabulous views across the East Sussex countryside.

We are not family friendly, if that’s what you are looking for there are plenty of alternatives out there.

We  are vegi and vegan friendly.

We are over 18's only and aim for a hassle-free, relaxed end of summer vibe.

And when we say intimate we mean it, hundreds not thousands.
