7th – 10th June 2024 – Peak District, UK
Founded by Sheffield based Rosa Audio, Rosa Festival has since been establishing itself as one of the most exciting new festivals in the North. Organised by a group of friends with no commercial backing, the event feels unique, inspiring and intimate.
Located just outside Middleton-by-Youlgrave, the stunning landscape of the Peak District becomes a vibrant assembly of music, nature and community from 7th – 10th June 2024, as the budding festival comes to life for another year.
Last year’s headliners included Ed Solo, Basstripper, Oko and Sota, who was recently awarded “best newcomer” in the Drum and Bass awards.
2023 also witnessed several alternative acts and live performances from We Hate the Sharkman, Dub Princess, Bristol Ceilidh Collective and stand-up comedian Jacob Konman. Previous attendees are eagerly waiting for 2024’s lineup, which is set for release in January.
The organisers stress the importance of promoting grassroots talent. “Being able to give undiscovered performers a platform to showcase their talent brings us massive satisfaction. We aspire for Rosa Festival to be recognised as the grassroots festival that truly supports underground artists.”, says Artists Manager Zach Chant.
Beyond the music, Rosa Festival has an open-air policy that allows attendees to explore outside the festival on guided hikes and walking routes, enabling attendees to experience the natural beauty of the surrounding national park.
Set for their fifth anniversary, the Rosa organisers are excited about what the future has to hold, showing gratitude to all that have made it possible up to this point. With their increasing social footprint, early bird release selling out in under 10 minutes and tickets for the weekend currently sitting at £99 – you can be sure the Peak District will be a hotspot for festival goers in summer 2024.
