Somerstock is Back!

Somerton’s own one-day, family-friendly music festival

Right here in the heart of town!

Plus ten more great bands on two outdoor stages bringing you 11 hours of fantastic live music


The first thing that hits you is the voice. From caressing sympathy to full-throated resentment, Alex Lipinski has grabbed unwary listeners from the West Country to Krakow, Berlin and New York


Featuring earnest lyrics, lilting melodies, and a mix of spare acoustic and plugged-in, full-band arrangements, Bess Atwell's debut album, Hold Your Mind, arrived in 2016.


Be prepared for a whirlwind tour from some of the UK best musicians. Chris launched 'Timeline' to mark 50 years as a professional rock drummer, performins a varied set list


The Decatonics are a high energy brass driven ska/mod/soul band based in Dorset, combining some of Bournemouth's best and finest ska musicians.


A celebration of the music of Jeff Lynne and ELO – performing all the classic hits such as Mr Blue Sky, Livin’ Things, Telephone Line, Don’t Bring me down, Evil Woman, Last train to London, Turn to Stone and many more…


Rampaging out of the south west, IRIE FIRE, an eight piece reggae fusion band are here to entertain you and to spread their passionate vibes far and wide.


A visual 5 piece Rock Show! Expect classics from the likes of AC/DC, Bon Jovi, Def Leppard and Van Hale


Ginger bloke, ginger guitar, ginger tunes... Nick’s songs are often tongue-in-cheek and cheerful, and on the rare occasion when fun IS poked (usually at himself) it is always with a wry smile and an element of satire.


Their expansive sound blends dream pop and garage rock with the urban ennui of Dietrich and the Velvets. The band’s urgent grooves are laced with conspiratorial vocals and lysergic flurries of violin and synth.

More beer, more bars, more food, more great stuff in the Kids’ Zone, more stalls and loads more fun.

Don’t miss out – get your advance tickets now !

Somerstock Family Fun Day

11.00am – 6.00pm  Sunday 10th July
Somerton Recreation Ground

The Family Funday is a FREE event, but please download a FREE ticket for everyone attending. You will need to show your ticket at the gate to gain entry.

The reason for this is because attendance now exceeds 499 people, the limit at which it becomes necessary to have an event licence. In order to obtain this licence we have to submit an event plan to the council giving them a maximum number of attendees which in this case was 1000. This has nothing whatsoever to do with bars and drinks licences. It is a safety issue to ensure that events have the appropriate number of stewards / officials / safety measures in place.

A limited number of tickets may be available as returns are being re-released.

Somerstock tickets are kindly sponsored by West Country VW Camper Hire

We have also teamed up with Yacooba to offer a special Somerstock package which includes a two night stay at the Best Western Surubbery Hotel on Friday 8th and Saturday 9th July.  Details can be found at Somerstock – Yacooba
