OakFest’24 – Music and Beer Festival Saturday 8th June 2024

Following the huge success of our previous festivals we came back with our 8th OakFest on Saturday 10th June in the grounds of Oakley School, Worminghall Road, Oakley HP18 9QY. The doors opened at 1.00pm when the school drummers got the music started then 14 bands and artists entertained the audience through to midnight on our two stages.

The line-up included a 90-minute set of 80’s classics by local legends Sledgehammer. Other bands included Steve Winch and the Inception, Still Breathing, Eastern Block Busters, Prog Floyd, Restless Oceans, The Vibe and Oakley favourites, The Band with No Name, closing the show. Something for everyone! And Main Stage acts were expertly signed by Marie from Hand Talking.

See this page for the full line up and set timings.

The support from our sponsors, the musicians and the audience is tremendous and we have raised over £72,000 for the school, Oakley Pre-School and St Mary’s Church which is a fantastic achievement for our little school.

The festival has grown incredibly since the early days of our wobbly little stage with tarpaulin roof to the professional stages and superb sound system provided by our friends at Class Act, Westcott we now have.

We were delighted that Windmill Windows very generously sponsored the main stage and roadside signs, with Lovell Fuels, Turfsolv/Superleggera, Westfield Fasteners of Long Crendon and Oakley Wood Timber sponsoring the other main areas. Martin & Co Estate Agents boosted our publicity with sale boards in the local area.

As well as the superb talents of the wonderful musicians, there was a fully stocked bar, expertly
managed by Festival Spirits, featuring a great selection of real ales, ciders and lots of lager, a Pimms bar, the deliciously posh ‘OakFeast’ barbecue with meat donated by Waterperry Farm Shop, as well as a traditional tea tent sponsored by Finesse. For the children there was a tuck shop, bouncy castle, ice creams and festival merchandise plus a free cinema tent in the evening. Sponsor, Rugby-Tots and Premier Sports are both hosted free sporting sessions on the recreation ground. Our friends at Living Willow offered willow weaving workshops inside our beautiful willow dome.

The weather couldn’t have been better and everyone had a fun-filled day with friends and family.

The best little music festival in Oakley!
