Who are we?

Head for the Hills is a festival of established musicians, emerging artists, DJs and a vibrant family arts programme in Ramsbottom, a beautiful town in Greater Manchester.

You can enjoy great music, family activities for all ages and tasty local food & real craft ales in the Lancashire hills.

We used to be called the Ramsbottom Festival until we changed our name last year.

The Met

The festival is curated with care by The Met, Bury’s independent music and arts venue.

This year it takes place on Friday 14, Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 September 2018 and is delivered by a passionate team of volunteers and partners.

We’re also part the Northern Festival Network and share best practice, ideas and tips to stay creative and innovative.


Environmental impact

Sustainability is really important to us and we implement policies before, during and after the event to reduce our environmental impact. We’re in the third year of a pledge which aims to reduce waste disposal, energy use and the impact of our visitors. We’re doing really well!



We’re really focussed on accessibility. To achieve this, we work closely with our partners; Attitude Is Everything who improve accessibility for deaf and disabled customers, and All In Access who co-ordinate access on site for our festival visitors.



We’d love to see you on social media, why not share your experiences at #H4TH
