ENJOY, LISTEN, DRINK AND EAT
We have four fantastic areas for you to visit at The Music Barn Festival: The Saloon Stage, The Selecta Stage, The Electric Forge Space and The Slade. Have a read below to find out more.
THE SALOON STAGE
The Saloon is our largest arena where people meet, dance and laugh. The Main Bar can be found here along with the Main stage.
In 2024 this space will be fully covered so even in the most unkind British summer weather we can still enjoy the music.
The Saloon is at the base of an ancient cliff face created by iron ore mining in days gone by. The ironstone workings have long since finished and mother nature has largely taken back what she lost.
With the sun setting behind the cliff the stage comes alive and you will find yourself dancing to the very best live music artists aross a broad spectrum including reggae, rock, and indie music.
THE ELECTRIC FORGE
Back by Popular Demand!
Back for 2024 the Forge space returns to the festival with a more relaxed vibe. Open early in the event the stage will be showcasing the best in acoustic and folk artist. Surrounded by straw bales, seating and located away from the busy centre of the festival, you can sit back and relax, sip from a ice cold cider and take it all in for a few moments.
THE SELECTA STAGE
The space is downtempo during the day with DJs playing an eclectic range of styles from old skool Hip Hop through funk and breaks
However, as the sun sets the atmosphere becomes charged; rhythmic drums fill the air and the Selecta crew bring you the very best in jungle and DnB.
Prepare to get Sweaty!
In Old English and Saxon language a Slade means a valley or dale.
Harking back to these ancient times, The Slade arena remains chilled during the day with the sound of disco, soul and funk.
Later in the evening, the tempo picks up. The beats become more insistent and the stage is graced by international House DJs and producers.
Always a popular stage at the festival.
