Music and cider festival returns to Cranborne Chase

Local festival-goers are celebrating the return of the Cursus Cider & Music Festival this summer on the bank holiday weekend (2nd – 5th June 2022).

The small capacity, grassroots festival has been on hiatus for two years due to the Covid pandemic. This year, it is set to return with the same energy, good vibes and great line-up as before.

Located just east of Salisbury in one of Dorset’s two areas of outstanding natural beauty, Cranborne Chase, Cursus offers a simple festival experience based around good people and good music.

The event is family and dog friendly, and live-in vehicles are welcome as well as tent campers.

With a huge camping area and late-night campfire, this is a festival to relax and make new friends as well as party.

This year’s Saturday night headliners are the incredible Dutty Moonshine Big Band, with a supporting bill including the likes of Random Hand, Black Water County, The Leylines, Skimmity Hitchers, Subgiant, Samantics and Emily Capell.

As well as nearly 30 live acts there will also be a selection of DJs throughout the weekend, all held together by legendary local DJ and compere Dapper Dan aka the Rock ‘n’ Roll Town Crier.

Speaking to the festival organiser, Kev Davis said, “Over the last eight years Cursus has built a reputation as a down to earth, fun and inclusive event in a wonderful location. Tickets are selling really well as people look to bounce back from the pandemic and rediscover the unique experience of small festivals.”

Adult tickets from £79 with discounts for children.
