Wallingford’s Summer Music Festival, Rugfest 2018 –
22nd/ 23rd June 2018 at Hithercroft Sports Park – Wallingford

Rugfest is back! - Now in its Eighth year and hosted by Wallingford Rugby club, this ever expanding summer festival offers fans the very best musical talent from across the country, tonnes of activities for all the family and a superb range of beverages and cuisine to make a memorable weekend for all.
Having taken a couple of fallow years and after the last brilliant weekend that included a stand out set from The Christians, this year the organisers are delighted to announce that SCOUTING FOR GIRLS as our headline band. This million-selling British pop band who released their Greatest Hits in 2013, giving the band their fourth Top 10 album, continue to grow and have an exciting 2018 planned as, not only does this year officially mark a decade since the release of the band’s eponymous self-titled debut album, it is also the year Scouting For Girls release a new album consisting of ten brand new unmistakable pop anthems set to have fans all over the world singing along in unison. The Band will be headlining Saturday’s stage joining other bands already announced REWS, Michael Baker, Martin Harley and festival favourites RSVP Bhangra.

If this massive mix is not enough to whet your musical appetite then the return of RSVP Bhangra to the Hithercroft should be enough to get everybody jumping; a lot of different music styles offer something for everyone, possibly the reason that this festival continues to grow in popularity. Rugfest is truly is a family event with little ones being spoilt for choice this year. There’s everything from a Mini Bhangra dance lesson to Jan’s Blackboard Van, Zorb Balls to an Arts and Crafts tent. It doesn’t stop there; Bouncy Castles, Bungee Runs, Blow up Boxing, high flying trampolines, Face Painting and, if they’re still standing, a 2 hour disco; just for kids!

Enjoy all this with a local tipple of your choice. Variety is the key with freshly made cocktails from the mixologists of Wallingford's Old Post Office, plus Loddon Ales – Cotswold Lagers and chilled ciders from across the country. A variety of fresh and tasty hot food is available throughout the event, including some of your favourites but some exciting new ideas from Quakers, gourmet grill handmade wraps, chilli dogs, London pie and mash company and lots more including ice cream of course!
