Lunar Festival 2018
Umberslade Estate, West Midlands.
Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult. We cannot issue refunds to under 16s who are not accompanied by an adult.
After taking a break in 2017 to focus on becoming even better than before, Lunar Festival is returning in 2018 from 26th-29th July! We are planning to shake things up a little with some higher profile artists, awesome new venues, inspiring exhibitions, thoughtful installations, uplifting processions, plus much more whilst keeping true to the Lunar spirit of years gone by!
To ensure this happens, we have introduced Lunar’s 7 Elements – Listen, Learn, Move, Create, Taste, Relax and Laugh – which all add up to an incredible festival experience. These elements cover everything that’s going on at Lunar from our line-up of bands and workshops to our food, bars, nightclubs and more. This includes the Glee Club curating a line-up of stand-up comedy as well as the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Space Centre running family-friendly workshops throughout the weekend, plus late night sounds with high calibre DJs taking you through to 3am.
