Great festival, defo coming back !!
drink prices were expensive my mate said it was a bit young but hes 32 the geratric.
Great festival but food and drink was a complete rip off, 2 drinks cost me Β£17.
Great day, good venue. Not too big. Cues were not too long at the entrance. All round good vibes. For garage nation- there was ALOT of drum n bass.
I always enjoy moondance but I and others would prefer each arena has a tent
great nights but drinks cost to much I dome over 200 pound and I'm not drunk

loved the music bus that brought us to venue food from some vendors overpriced for what portion size given and poor quality. atmosphere awesome .came from Cambridge and glad I spent the day with bootiful people XXX
the previous year was a lot better this year was alright que for drinks wasn't impressed considering I had vip I think this event should have bar for vip and toilet like other festival
Candice Elaine Cordrey
had an amazing time. definitely going next yr, loved it π
Brilliant experience, atmosphere and location. Can't wait to come to the next one if at same place
The breakin science stage should have had the full light production on from start to finish but except from that it was a brilliant day
absolutely loved it
no thinking just dancing ππβ€
the music wasn't all that compared to last year when we came here. as it was so hot there was hardly any shade so maybe a shaded area for next year would be nice. also food stalls we have a burger that was sitting in a heater for 7 pound I think that was a bit of a rip off.
A wicked day, djs were on point weather was amazing and the vibe was lively
Great day out, just wish there was more visible security
Great day out for a good rave up
Was great day. Could have done with more jungle but that's just my preference.
More shade would have been good - it was 30 degrees!
Ravers were chilled and pleasure to rave with. Great day.
Amazing day !!!!!! Amazing music, friendly staff, friendly atmosphere! Will be back next year !!!!
Lovely day event in great surroundings, safe and fun!
Banging day good vibes and a good mix of old and young ravers loved it
love sunborn! went last year aswell for my hen do!

Nobody could've known what a hot day it was going to be but it should've been flexible because of this. Later last entry (was 19.30), water more readily available. Some djs had to stop playing already at 21.15. Though the others went on til 22.00. Beer and other drinks prices extortionate. Ticket prices were very cheap if buying early bird. There were good security. Friendly and efficient though working in extreme heat. I'm glad I went but unlikely to go again.
Was a great festival, great day. Wasnt really worth upgrading to VIP. But would go again!!
great day good vibes nice of new and old ravers but the price of food and drink was a joke
Courtney Elle Jordan
very expensive drinks ...no tissue in toilets ...very dirty toilets ...rubbish everywhere
Michael Van Meer
Loved it every minute!
Vibes....people....music....everything was fantabulous!!! Drink prices a lil steep but what do you expect🤔
Amazing day, same time next year ❤️
I enjoyed the festival, it was lively n fun
Brilliant day lovely crowd of people and the music was spot on 🤪
It was so much fun with great music
Great music and proper good venue too
People got stabbed, clearly unsafe event to go to if security are not using metal detectors!!!
Brilliant event and can't wait for next year
Kieran O Shaw
Great time! 👌
Generally good day, couple of attendees had the wrong attitude but I guess you ignore the d**kheads. Food & drinks were too expensive though, £9 for jerk chicken and £6 for a can of strongbow is excessive when you can get them for a pound in a shop...
Great event with good organization. Will certainly be returning next year. Music can be louder than at other venues as it is a good distance from neig*bours. That's always a big plus.
Mr Denzil H Gunn
Event was amazing good djs and mcs
Price of drink was high and the event run out of dark fruit cider early
Garage Nation was a good Day/Night Out with my group of friends... followed By good vibes, good music and amazing weather !!
Myself and my other half look forward to this every year - This year completely smashed last year's, an epic festival!!
Had the best time ever !
staff were all really nice friendly. breakin science and moondance stages were epic
Location was not the best for public transport
Lee Fleming Free Birthday Pass
A couple of bad things
Didn't really have enough information about the sun cream and where to get it
No disabled toilet in the vip as some of our friends are in wheel chairs
Charlie Jacobs Free Birthday Pass
Great festival .. couldn't find a cash point though
Had a really good time can't wait for nx yr
Went to sunborn in 2017, loved it so much booked again for 2018, certain events happening over that particular weekend made me a bit anxious to attend however it didnt disappoint! Loved it equally as much & cant wait for 2019 :)
Good vibes, great day
Loved it set out nice was great music and had a fabulous day. However drinks were very expensive for e.g red strip can 5.50 it's 1 pound in shop. Rip off
Ive been to a lot of festivals and Im not going to lie I was a bit apprehensive about going. Me and my friends were the last ones to leave. It was amazing. Music, atmosphere just everything. Amazing. We are all buzzing for next year!!!!!!!
the bars were a complete rip off, the music was ok, some of the dj's i expected to be good were not. would go again
more signage to and from the station to event would be good next year-
Wicked vibes, wicked event.
Over priced everything and location difficult to find
Miss Tamara Leitch
First ever festival and I wasn't a raver back in the day, but can't wait until next year's and will definitely look out for similar later in the Summer - a mist excellent experience!! πππ
Had such a great time will definitely be going again next year.
Just need a few areas with some shade for when it gets to hot.
A bit far out.
I enjoyed the festival in the park. Hainault was the right place to have the festival; but the drinks were a bit pricey and there was no information about where to get tap water. I ended up buying a couple of bottles of water before I found out that other bar had tap water. The after party could have been in another location for longer than 2 am. Also, we were not told that we all had to have ID on us regardless of age to be let into the after party
Charging £6 a can was ridiculous and food prices were ridiculous didnt eat! The rest was a wicked day!
The drinks were very over priced Β£10 for a bottle of lemonade Β£160 for vodka thatβs ah bit high π€
Not as good as last year. Horrible vibe, full of kids, music wasnt as good.
Sunny Day. Lovely music. Happy Positive vibes from everyone.
Really great day out that was my second year hoping to make it three years in a row next year. Thanks for the free birthday ticket!!
Amazing event and the weather helped!
I had such an amazing time. The weather was good the food and drink were a reasonable price and I had the best company in my friends.
Everyone was just having a good time enjoying themselves and were so friendly.
I laughed hard and danced until my feet were sore.
My only regret was not going both days.
music was ok atomosphere was not that nice people ruin it for others
I cant really make an honest review due to the fact that we weren't allowed in due to the violence that happened the previous day. We arrived at 19:15 and were refused entry. The security informed us that the police enforced a 'no entry after 19:00' policy.
people were very rough and not a trace of politeness. The bar had NO ICE for the g&t! Having said that, the venue is great!
We received Free NHS tickets, it was our first time at this event, it was a shame the festival took place on Sunday, as we would have much preferred a Saturday. That a side, it was a brilliant day, people were friendly, staff were very friendly. the whole day was brilliant. Loved Breaking Science, gutted we missed MC Det on the main stage, but hey ho, we had a fantastic day.
Thank you very much,
Well managed festival. Layout was ok, but would be cramped had the weather not been so great!
Bring back Trent Park
brilliant music, brilliant atmosphere.. good day!!
I attended last year had a great time wnd this year I told my friends thst thos is a must and we all had a really great time. I will planning for next year.
A good outdoor venue, with good music, food and drink. Nice atmosphere, with fine weather, all in all, excellent.
Sunborn was great but I bought after party tickets but there was NO after party!!
Fantastic day thanks for NHS discounts
Had an absolutely fantastic day, would definitely go again!
Great day had by all, lots of different music and food, it was good to see so many bars available so the queues were not to big.
thank you for a great day.
Good vibes and people, quick easy entry!
Had a great time can't wait for the next event
Was a great day with fab music!
it was great!
Good day out...good music, like minded people and the weather was amazing so defo going again :)
great event, had a great time
It was a great event needs more seating areas but apart from that great day and vibes.
First time being Moondance and it was a blast, its just a shame I live on the complete opposite side of London!
the whole experience was awesome and amazing especially the magical skies above the festival I was definitely sunburn again.
indeed very good xx
Had an amazing time! 🎶👌🏻🔊
Drinks very overpriced
My friends and I enjoyed our time at the Sunborn Festival. For some of us it was our first time going to a festival. The vibe was great in general, there was some music that we had never heard of before and other music that fit with our type of music and liking. I'm not one for knowing genres of all music so checked out each tent now and then.
There was a bit of space towards the back where you could relax and chill out as well as hear a bit of music in the background. Perhaps having a 'quiet' area a bit further away could be of benefit to some who need a break from it all before going back to enjoy themselves.
Security seemed to be thoroughly searching some people which was good however confiscating legal drugs such as ibuprofen which was not on the banned list and not being able to discuss it with them was unfortunate. A lot of people had managed to get cannabis into the festival and so it was not pleasant at times when others were smoking cannabis in the same tent where the festival was occurring.
It was great to see a variety of food outlets, particularly encouraging a vegan outlet to be there for those who are interested or consume a vegan diet. The last set on the main stage was great before heading home. Overall a pleasant experience but there is room for improvement as discussed above.
Amazing venue, clean and great acts
Charlene St Ange
Had a great time, but drinks and food a little pricey.
Very good chilled out event
wicked day great security felt safe. great variation of music xxx
If you haven't been you need to good day out
Food and drink prices were absolutely RIDICULOUS!!! Your people took advantage and charged totllay SILLY STUPID prices for food and drink! Sorry but it shouldn't be allowed!
So happen there was free water bottles
Not enough security
the best festival of the year always look forward to coming to Moondance such an amazing atmosphere ππΎ
Drinks were expensive but other than that was a good day
Wicked event loved it just finished to soon
Was such a good festival and for such little money would deffo go again!
Music was good. A bit more variation would be perfect including afro beats, kizomba, rnb. I think their could've been better toilet facilities. The food was very over priced comparing it to street festivals like carnival. Please review this.
Too clicky, too much trouble there.
Sound systems not loud enough in most tents
Overall it was nice ok x
Sunday was fantastic, great music, great venue, great atmosphere ππ» xXx
Best place Iv been for a long time and Iv been some places.
Shame about £5/6 for a drink tho
Had a fantastic time! The journey was far but i personally enjoyed making my way there, thank you skiddle for giving me the opportunity to go to this festival I have never known about this until I got an email, thank you xxx
Awesome day cant wait for next year
Awesome festival with a great atmosphere only slight niggle was that the sound system was not quite fit for purpose, I dont think it was basey enough.
