Buckingham’s local Stowaway Festival have recently announced the day splits and set times for their third instalment of the annual music event.

The festival takes place over the August 16th-18th weekend, and is packed full of eclectic, musical mixes, across multiple stages. It is hosted at Blackpit Farm in Stowe, with 400 acres of land.

This year, the line up includes artist Max Cooper, performing as one of his only two festival appearances this summer. This news comes after previous headliner, Maribou State, had to make the decision to cancel all upcoming live shows due to an ongoing illness.

Stowaway festival also faced a similar issue last year in 2023, after their main headliner Roy Ayers pulled out and was replaced by Goldie.

However, despite these unfortunate events, the festival has received a lot of praise from previous attendees and reviewers.

On Friday 16th, Greentea Peng will headline the Main Stage, followed by a DJ set from Groove Armada at midnight.  On Saturday 17th, the Main Stage will be headlined by Leftfield, and Joe Goddard returns with a live band after closing Stowaway in 2023. On Sunday 18th, Max Cooper will headline the Main Stage with his  AV show, while Artwork will close the festival with a DJ set on The Jetty.

Aside from music, there is also artisan food stalls, craft ales, wild swimming, canoeing and paddle boarding as well as kids entertainment activities.

Holding court in a bucolic lake-side site, it’s all about small stages, hidden woodland parties, mellow relaxation, comedy, seriously good feasting and it’s kid-friendly… we love it. – Muddy Stilettos

Stowaway Festival was created with a mission to deliver the perfect weekend antidote to the trappings of the modern world. Offering the opportunity to dance the night away in beautiful woodland surroundings with internationally renowned musicians and DJs.
