Get your Early Bird Tickets before they finish on Tuesday 31st May, 2016.
Early Bird full weekend tickets now on sale for just £55. A bargain price to see some of the best Bluegrass around with three American Bands booked and one waiting to be confirmed.
Apology if the website plays up, it’s probably us trying to sort out the photo galleries again!
We have two headline acts confirmed for Didmarton this year and both hail from the U.S.A.
Front Country from San Francisco: http://www.frontcountryband.com
Cahalen Morrison & Eli West from Seattle: http://cahalenandeli.com
We’ll be posting more information on both of these as the weeks go on, plus the rest of the line-up as it’s finalised, but in the meantime, check out their websites, Facebook pages and Youtube, to hear the fabulous music they are going to be playing for us.
It’s looking dry for Didmarton 2015 🙂
Advance Tickets we’re left a day or two extra but it will be cash on the gate now.

Ever wondered how to make felt? Here is your chance to find out how and create a wondrous woolly masterpiece – choose to make a flower or vase.
- MAKE YOUR OWN BLUEGRASS INSTRUMENT WORKSHOP, Saturday 2 – 4pm
Rummage through our junk modelling materials and put together your very own Bluegrass instrument. Fancy making a fiddle, blinging banjo or bostin’ bass? Come and join us for the ‘make & take’ fun.
*Parents, feel free to bring anything that can go in our rummage box for instrument making*
Check it out – Didmarton 2015 – something for everyone
Just go to ‘Line-up’ tab then ‘Programme’ to see just some of what’s happening
Thank you for your patience. It’s been a fair amount of work tracking musicians down and getting them to fill in paperwork, send in photos etc, especially when it has to go through agents and third parties. We are getting there and should have our programme/running order fairly well nailed down shortly – All artists performing are on the slider on the home page.
The NEW children’s area is going to be a hive of activity with various activities including face painting and instrument making (if you have any useful materials for instrument making, please bring them along.) We are even going to have a children’s stage for our blooming young performers.
Not long now . . .
Del Rey is an extraordinary guitarist, engaging entertainer and unique ukulele stylist. Should go down well with you old-timers out there (according to FOAOTMAD).
Thank you to all who have purchased an Early Bird Ticket, it helps us out massively with pre-festival costs.
There is still a saving on the Advance Weekend Ticket so don’t feel you’ve completely missed out on a bargain ticket price. ONLY £55.00 for 3 days of fabulous music and 4 nights of bonfires, beer, burgers, bikers and banjos (also, fiddles, mandolins, guitars, double basses, dobros and more!)
A Bluegrass Festival not to be missed, an atmosphere like no other.
We still have more bands to confirm but there’s a great line-up already.
