Tandem Festival celebrates culture, fosters cooperation and inspires change, and we’re back for our 3rd edition! This summer the Tandem experience comes to life from 16th - 18th June in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside at Lower Farm, Ramsden. Cycle powered, volunteer fuelled and community led, Tandem brings you different worlds of music, art, talks, workshops, film screenings and food. At Tandem, what’s good for your ears, eyes and dancing shoes can be good for the planet too!

Our diverse lineup includes internationally acclaimed bands from prog-folk to Nordic jazz acapella, late night DJs, gypsy and Greek sets, folk musicians from around the world and the best of local talent. At Tandem, it’s all about an unforgettable listening experience. Our intimate spaces enable bands to experiment with new arrangements and resonant performances, while our open-air main stage is loud and proud for you to dance your socks off.

As well as music, the festival will be packed with dance, storytelling, film, talks, crafts, creative space and eco-friendliness. We also have an incredible programme of workshops to introduce you to topics from laughter yoga and massage to bike maintenance and feminism for dads.

Eco-friendliness and inclusivity are at the heart of our festival. We incentivise low-carbon transport to the festival (get on your bike!), avoid non-recyclable waste, upcycle everything we can and only serve veggie/vegan ethically and locally sourced food. The site is step-free and family-friendly with unisex and accessible toilets. Get in touch if you have any queries.
