Early bird ickets for Somerstock 2022 are now on sale via the Somerstock website. Somerstock, Somerton’s own one-day, family friendly music festival will take place at the Recreation Ground on Saturday 9th July, with 12 bands performing across two outdoor stages. Headlined by The Hoosiers, you won’t want to miss this year’s event. Early bird tickets will be on sale until the end of February, so grab yours now!
The festival organisers would like to thank everybody who supported this year’s Somerton Music and Arts Festival. We had a fantastic week of events throughout the town, culminating with Somerstock, our family-friendly music festival, at the Recreation Ground.
We still have a couple of events to come: Jive Night on 19th August and Oktoberfest on October 9th, both at Edgar Hall. Make sure you have your tickets…
It was disappointing that we had to cancel a couple of our planned events because some of the Covid-19 restrictions still being in place, and run others in a slightly different way to ensure everybody stayed safe and had a great time. But we will be back next year, bigger and better than ever, and we already have our headline act in place for Somerstock. The Hoosiers will be headlining on Saturday 9th July.
We would also like to thank all our sponsors, without whom we would not be able to put on the festival.
We hope everybody had a safe and enjoyable time, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
