Flashpoint Festival

Rockingham Castle, Market Harborough
Passed

This event has been and gone.

For the last few years Flashback Festival has been storming the UK and they are now delighted to present its new sister Flashpoint Festival, which is set to take place this summer within the grounds of Rockingham Castle. The first of its kind, the weekend will host an array of seminal artists, meaning there will be something there for everyone.

The opening party on the Friday night will be exclusively for weekend ticket holders only, and so for the full Flashpoint experience people can stay over the whole weekend. There is a range of camping options available with standard camping, VIP camping and campervan, and caravan camping.

For those taking little ones they will be kept busy and entertained all weekend with plenty to see and do within the kids area, and for anyone who likes to dress up the theme of the weekend will be Rockstars and Popstars.
