The UK’s biggest alcohol and drug-free music festival returns to Queen Elizabeth Country Park.

Butserfest, is now in its ninth year and has provided a place for music lovers of the younger generation to get that festival feel in a safe environment.

With many festivals and venues increasing their lower age limit to 18, Butserfest is unique in providing an opportunity for young people to experience world class live music in an alcohol and drug-free festival environment.

Butserfest, which is organised by East Hampshire District Council, has built a solid reputation as one of the best festivals of its kind in the country and the impressive line-up this year means it is set to be the best year yet.

Leader of the council, cllr Ferris Cowper said: ‘Butserfest is a unique event which has become part of the calendar for our young people.

‘I regard it as one of our great community achievements which is why the council continues to support it and help it grow.

‘It’s amazing to think that the festival will be celebrating its 10th anniversary next year. Long may it continue.’

The music will be spread across three stages, with 38 bands playing a range of pop-punk, metal and hardcore genres, making Butserfest a rock concert with a difference.

Headlining the event on September 12 will be British rockers Don Broco.

Fans will also be able to enjoy free activities including a skateboard simulator, zorbing, last man standing and base jumping.

Doors open at 11am, with tickets costing £24.90.
