FESTIVAL OVERVIEW

After the magic & success of Soul Town Festival 2023, we will  be pulling out all the stops to make  Soul Town 2024  a weekend to remember and our best festival yet!
We will be bringing together the biggest Soul, Motown, Disco, Funk & House acts from across the globe across two days on Saturday 31st August and Sunday 1st September 2023.
Its all going to be going down on a sun-kissed and much improved site to bring that summer soul to the South East. Soul Town Festival plays out on a beautiful site in Beckenham, Kent which is having a whole host of upgrades to really bring the experience to life with more themed spaces, more bars, more staff, more toilets and improved disabled access and viewing points.

Plus our newly improved food village will be boasting over 40 street food stalls serving a whole host of tasty treats, cultured food and providing drinks from entry level to premium gins. There will be music across two spectacular main stages with immersive light, sound and visual shows, as well as special VIP areas.
VIP tickets include separate queuing for fast track entry, a drink and food voucher (beer, wine, spirit and mixer), Soul Town merchandise, private bar, luxury toilets, makeup bar, prime stage viewing area at both stages and more.
