With a programme that grows year on year, Head for the Hills continues to curate a programme of artists, family events and workshops to compliment our award-winning lineup.

Each day more extraordinary than the next, over the weekend you can expect an electric mix of interventions, strolling artists and hands-on workshops to keep the kids (and big kids) happy! Intertwining with our festival goers, artists pop up around the festival site to perform across the day during and in between your favourite bands. Head for the Hills keeps a playful spirit at the heart of its programming, perfect for all family to enjoy. 

In 2018 we enjoyed: Baba Yaga’s House | L_ve Hangman | Playground of Illusions | Pendulum Wave Machine | A Bird in the Hand | Life of a Bee | 

Get the sunscreen on and the wellies out and prepare for something unexpected and magical at Head for the Hills Festival.
