Truefest is an independent music & arts festival and epic mansion party rolled into one! 1 hour from Bristol & Cardiff with a swimming pool, hot showers, camping, hotel rooms, glamping and free parking reviewed by Mpora as the "The friendliest festival in the UK!". Expect band and DJ stages inside the mansion going until 5am and outdoor stages with amazing views of the Wye Valley and Brecon Beacons. When the sun goes down Baskerville Hall becomes the canvas for incredible projection mapping and AV shows from Guildhall Live Events. They will be showing unique VJ shows as part of their amazing light show. We also have a Tiki cocktail bar, an indoor pub and a variety of food with vegan and vegetarian dishes to choose from.

We have a big line up for an intimate festival (see below for previous artists) and as well as the music we have theatre and the arts in the same grounds that launched Green Man festival and our earlier incarnation Troyfest. If you need to relax and recover there is yoga and massage or even a short trip down to the river Wye for some wild swimming.
Mpora - "This party is made up entirely of awesome fun-loving folk. If you feel disenchanted by huge corporate festivals, Truefest is the exact remedy you need. During the day when we weren't lazing around in hammocks drinking cocktails, we were exploring the stunning countryside around us and swimming down the nearby river (the perfect hangover cure!). After sunset we danced to DJs and live music till 5am, before heading back to camp and watching the sun come up before bed"
Cultured Vultures wrote - "Truefest is, in essence, a 3-day long house party in a giant mansion near Hay-on-Wye in the shadow of the Brecon Beacons. It has to be seen to be believed"
