In 2018 Elderflower Fields will take place from Friday 25th to Monday 28th May (which is a bank holiday and the start of summer half term for most schools).


After two brilliant years, in 2014 we waved a fond farewell to the Bentley estate and began to settle in our new home of Pippingford Park, in the heart of the Ashdown Forest. Pippingford is big, beautiful and wild – we love it! It’s got loads of space for us to run around and stunning views across rugged heathland and ancient woods. Is also really easy to get to from both Brighton and London. Full details can be found on the travel page here.


Kids Activities

We pride ourselves in creating an exciting and inspiring range of activities for children. From sports and arts camps, the urban woods activities, wildlife and environmental projects, music, theatre, dance, science – there’s something for everyone. And most importantly, with the exception of a few special activities, it’s all included in your ticket price. Some sessions will require booking in advance, others will be drop in. More details on all the activities content will be published early in 2018.


Over 40 diverse acts on two stages, check out the performers page for confirmed line up announcements. A full schedule with timings will be published shortly before the festival.

Food & Drink

The food and drink on offer at Elderflower Fields is one of the most prominent and enjoyable parts of the festival experience. Our aim is to provide a range of delicious food and drink served up by people who are knowledgeable and passionate about what they offer. We specifically promote quality, family run, Sussex based ventures who are committed to using locally sourced, organic and fair trade ingredients whenever possible.
