About Westfest

Westfest is undergoing some exciting changes! 


They've got 5 arenas of music, the legendary Main Arena, One Nation Drum & Bass, Hardcore Heaven with the best in Hardcore & Hardstyle, Rumble in the Jungle and Funkagenda in the VIP. Whilst changing the opening hours they've also thought about the layout of the site - Hardcore is going back to its original home in the massive Mendip Hall where many historic performances have taken place over the last 20 years.


VIP's are getting the additional benefit of getting exclusive access to the Main Arena balcony as well as getting priority entry and the usual VIP area with toilets and of course, the fire pit.
