Bedford River Festival 2018

The Bedford River Festival celebrated its 40th anniversary at the weekend with tens of thousands of people descending on the town’s river and surrounding area to enjoy a whole range of entertainment.

First time attending and I was kinda blown away by the scale of the event and just how good it was. Live music was only a small part of what was on offer, with river parades, demonstrations and games along the Great Ouse as well as loads of food and drink stalls.

Below is a selection of acts playing on the main stage on the Saturday including headliners Dub Pistols, My Baby (who played in the region last year at Esquires), Kuenta I Tambu, The Scruff, The Hempolics and Ginger Snaps.

There was a fantastic range of music across the weekend thanks to promoters The Pad Presents / Esquires
