After a quarter of a century of being Europe’s biggest, best and most popular VW show, Bug Jam 25 is back once again with a line-up of both on and off-track action that reflects the history and heritage of this iconic event. Once more, it’s time for the incredible VW-inspired, weekend long party, where over 33,000 show-goers can expect to have fun in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
As well as non-stop drag racing from the pros, there are numerous chances for you to have a go yourself in the many ‘Run What You Brung’ sessions held over the weekend. Running on the strip throughout the show will be Fireforce, Santa Pod’s own 280mph Jet Car, the insane Jet Beetle and of course, the 7-second quarter mile turning 2 seat dragster, for the very brave to ride in. Polishing buffs will also love the Autoglym ‘Show and Shine’ area, where Europe’s most beautifully finished creations compete for top honours.

Music fans will hit ‘overload’ thanks to a packed itinerary of live bands across four music arenas, including chart-toppers The Candle Thieves, D:ream and The Farm headlining on the Friday night, and Indie favourites, The Wonder Stuff doing an extensive set on the Saturday. Mix in live DJs and comedy tents to provide something for everyone - and you’ll begin to understand why the event has such a broad appeal. Comedy is always a big draw at Bug Jam and this year, with ‘Mock The Week’ and Radio 4 regular Milton Jones heading up the talent, expect significant hilarity throughout the entire weekend. Frustrated singers and performers are also welcome on the ‘Bug Jam’s Got Talent’ stage, where we can’t promise Simon Cowell, but you might just win a few fans for your trouble.

But that’s STILL not all! There’s free camping on-site all weekend and better still, the under 13s get in for absolutely nothing! There’s a huge funfair and festival traders on site for all to enjoy and to tug at the old heartstrings, The Battle Of Britain memorial flight with a WWII Dakota will be putting in an appearance on the Saturday.

With a capacity crowd expected, show goers are advised to book their tickets early, you DO NOT want to miss this one!
