Somerton Music & Arts Festival

Festival fortnight

Planning for the 2024 Somerton Music & Arts Festival has begun with events including a music weekend with local bands performing at our local hostelries, crafts workshops, talks, walks and special musical performances – including the world’s most authentic Fleetwood Mac tribute act at St Michael’s church.  The festival culminates, of course, with Somerton’s own music festival Somerstock, which will take place at the Recreation Ground on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th July.

The popular Arts Exhibition, which gives local artists the change to exhibit and sell their work, will be back as a prelude to the festival.

Look out for events as they are announced!


Acclaimed tribute band Fleetwood Bac is coming to Somerton this summer – the first event to be added to our 2024 calendar! If you are a fan of the original band you will not be disappointed. Fleetwood Bac looks and sounds just like the real thing and plays all the hits with uncanny accuracy. Critics describe them as “spot on” and “first rate”.

They will be performing at St Michael & All Angels Church on Thursday 4th July.

Find out more about them and other events as they are announced on our events page.

Somerton’s iconic music festival Somerstock is part of the Somerton Music and Arts Festival. Somerstock 2024 rolls back into town on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th and is set to fill the Recreation ground with summer vibes, music and dancing. We have a fantastic lineup of musicians playing on Friday evening and all day on Saturday along with all the usual attractions, bars and street food to set your taste buds alight.

Tier 1 tickets are selling fast. Grab yours before they go – Somerstock 2023 was a sellout!


Full Steam Ahead

The Festival Fortnight begins this year on 30th June with Cardiff Strings at St Michael’s Church. Events to follow include music nights at our local hostelries, talks and walks. It all culminates with Somerton’s own music festival, Somerstock.  But before this, from the end of May into June there are pre festival events including craft and art workshops, live music from Twisted Vinyl at the Sports Club and the Art & Photography exhibition at the Parish Rooms.

There is so much local talent in our area. Visitors to the festival can see it all and even learn some new skills themselves, whether music, history, crafts or bees are your thing. There’s something going on to suit everyone at various locations around the town and many of the events are free. 

We are a community event, and we couldn’t do any of it without the help of our sponsors and advertisers, and of course all our willing volunteers. If you’d like to join our merry team, please do get in touch.

We look forward to seeing you at some, or even all, of our events!
