Endorse It In Dorset Festival


Endorset Festival & Campsite Information

We go again! After the success of last year's festival, the Endorset team have decided to put on another Endorset event at Cerne Abbas Brewery.
We're going to kick off this year on a big Thursday, the 1st August. You're welcome to come along early doors and camp up during the daytime; there's plenty of room in the camping field which will open from 8am, the bar will be open from 11am and you can watch us make the final preparations. Bands will start at 3pm on the Thursday and go through until midnight. There's an extra bonus Sunday for you now as well because we're especially nice and we want to see more of you. On Friday and Saturday, live music starts early doors, from 10am onwards so best get yourselves dressed (or not) and head into the arena.

Tickets for this year are still capped at 500 people maximum so be quick.
Let's get down and dirty! Get your frock back on!
The first 100 tickets are on sale on the 27th October and will be at the special early bird price of £110 +£4 booking fee.

This year's festival is still at Cerne Abbas Brewery- a traditional Dorset brewery, purveying outstandingly beautiful beer in the sacred Cerne Valley and under the watchful 'eye' of the Cerne Abbas Giant and your landlords Jodie, Vic and Danny the Chief Brewer will be knocking out the quality ales, ciders and lagers at unbelievable low prices for an event of this magnitude..
Adjacent to the amazing festival arena you will find the beautiful campsite, literally a stone's throw away.
