About Lunar Festival

Lunar festival is a family friendly music festival for approximately 3000 people, set on farmland and green fields. The terrain can be uneven in places, but is mostly flat. Wet weather may make navigating the site more challenging for those with mobility issues. It is a relatively small site however and the different areas are no more than a 5-7 minute walk away. Umberslade is a working farm and visitor attraction so there will be livestock in surrounding fields.
