Round off your summer with this year’s eagerly-awaited Off The Tracks music festival.

And we have two weekend tickets up for grabs in our latest competition.

Bands lined up to delight Off The Tracks festival-goers this summer include Dreadzone, Banco de Gaia, the Martin Barre Band, Dub Pistols and Zub Zub.

Off The Tracks isn’t your average festival. Fans of live music, real ales, beautiful countryside and great camping facilities need look no further than Off The Tracks for a wonderful festival experience on September 4, 5 and 6.

Off The Tracks is a family-friendly music festival staged at historic 17th century Donington Park Farm, Isley Walton, just a couple of miles from Donington Park Racing Circuit.

Dreadzone, headlining the marquee on Saturday night, blend dub, reggae, techno, folk and rock. Banco de Gaia, Friday’s headliners, fuse dub with Arabic and Middle Eastern samples over reagae, rock and trance. Martin Barre, of Jethro Tull fame, and his band top the bill on Sunday.

There will be at least 30 more acts rocking the main stage in the Marquee, and raising the roofs of the Black Barn, Oak Room and Threshing Barn.

If you get thirsty, the festival will be serving about 70 real ales, ciders, perries. The fabulous food includes venison reared on the site, falafel, a hogroast and proper cooked breakfast.

Off The Tracks has arts and crafts stalls, activities for children and our camping facilities and showers are tip top.

It’s the 27th year at this unique site, staging this very special festival in its beautiful setting.
