Music for Everyone

LoxFest offers music for everyone and this year will be no exception. New for 2018! We are delighted to announce the addition of a second acoustic stage within the beer marquee! This will be a chance for local and up-and-coming artists to showcase their talent between the acts on the main stage. We promise a great experience, whether you choose to enjoy the vibes from one of our straw bales, your own picnic chair or join the dancers in front of the stage!
