Oxted Beer & Music Festival is three days of superb live music played in a quaint setting at the heart of the little town of Oxted. A 'grown up" music festival where the music is accompanied by a choice of over 100 real ales, ciders and craft lagers, a fantastic array of food, children's entertainment and much much more. For three days in July the beautiful Master Park gets hit with big music, great performers, fantastic street food providers and just a hint of that "Ibiza" feeling down at the resident Retox Cocktail Bar. All set around the local village cricket pitch, with high standard cricket matches being played throughout the weekend the whole mix is quintessentially English and quite unique.
Having started life as a small local beer festival in 2012, the festival now boasts 10,000+ visitors and pops up from nowhere to transform the beautiful village park, giving locals and visitors from an ever increasing distance a chance to mingle and enjoy the show. Everyone is welcome to the party and every year we try to keep it fresh and push things a little further to keep you all keen.
Expect to find a varied mix of music genres from our 20+ bands across the weekend ranging from blues, country and folk to rock, indie and house. We try to pick something for everyone from local acts through to national and international names.
Become a Sponsor and help raise funds to build a new Pavillon on Master Park!
The Oxted Beer & Music Festival is a fund raising event held in aid of local sporting organisations and charities. Proceeds raised at the festival are targeted at funding local sports infrastructure and development projects. We work closely with Master Park and its dedicated management committee together with the other park stakeholders, Oxted & Limpsfield Cricket Club and Oxted and District Football Club without whose support the event would not be possible. For more information of what the festival has funded since 2014 please go to our Charities Page.
The festival is held in the beautiful Master Park situated in the heart of the town of Oxted and only a 2 minute walk from Oxted Railway Station. It's easily accessible from London with journey times of only 40 minutes from London Bridge and London Victoria and by car Oxted is situated just off junction 6 on the M25.
Why not find a local place to stay and join us for the whole weekend?

Although there is no camping at the festival there is a good selection of quality accommodation in the surrounding area.
