About

In a world on fire, we’re still somewhere to believe in. After all the uncertainty and anxiety of the last two years, we’re hopeful to get back out there and continue the momentum of a festival that’s inclusive, open-minded, participatory and generous in spirit. We know we’re not out of the woods yet. But we are glimpsing more sunlight on the fields beyond the trees than we have for some time now.

Greenbelt Festival
26–29 August 2022
Boughton House, nr Kettering

What is Greenbelt?

We’re somewhere artistry meets activism, the secular meets the spiritual, politics meets positivity. We’re somewhere to come together once a year, where we’re just as likely to dream up a better world as we are to dance and debate, to pray and to party (ideally all of those things at the same time).

Our manifesto

We’ve been down in the darkness with Bryony Kimmings and up on the highest mountain with Mavis Staples. We’ve protested and partied with Pussy Riot, and built Jerusalem with Billy Bragg. Find out what we’re all about by reading our manifesto.

Our values

We’re somewhere lots of us have a stake in. We’re made up of a small band of people who spend all year dreaming up and delivering the best festival we can. Then there are our trustees, a family of hundreds of volunteers, a host of generous festival Angels, and a rolling sea of artists, activists, thinkers, dreamers and doers who make Greenbelt happen each year.

Our story

We were founded a long time ago by a bunch of misfits in a field. We’re still in a field. And we’re still somewhere that welcomes absolutely anyone and everyone. Particularly those of us who sometimes feel like we don’t belong anywhere else.
