We are a FREE family-friendly music festival in an idyllic riverside setting with more than 40 acts playing across four stages, with all kinds of music from rock, indie and folk on the main two stages and all sorts on the Riverside Fringe and Buskers stages!

Established for 24 years, we are one of the biggest free events in Oxfordshire, and a big fixture on the local music calendar too!

All the bands who perform are mainly Oxfordshire based bands who willingly give up their time to perform for free. Just like the dedicated team of volunteers, who are all from the local community, who each year give up so much of their time to plan, build, run, and break down the festival, again, we all do it for free. We have never charged our visitors to get in to Riverside, and that’s how we want it to stay… FREE!!

During 2018 the UK experienced 6 weeks of beautiful weather, officially a heatwave! However, there was just one real blip in the glorious weather when the clouds rolled in and the wind and rain came.... that was the last weekend of July... Riverside weekend.

As we are a non ticketed event, the weather makes a big difference to our visitor numbers, and as you might imagine, cold blustery wind and rain kept the crowds away.

We raise the majority of our funding from sales at the bar, and as a consequence of the weather, for the first time ever, we didn't cover our costs.

For Riverside 2019 we have a big shortfall in our funds that we are looking to plug, and that's where we're asking for your help. Can you help us to keep Riverside FREE and ensure we can continue to put on this fantastic event for the local community, and for music lovers far and wide, some who come from many miles away to spend an afternoon or evening watching great music.

 And of course, we would love to see you all down on the Mill Field in Charlbury on the 20/21 July.

Thank you,
The Riverside Crew
