Festival organiser Flounder Murray told TheFestivals.UK: “Whilst OUT West is synonymous with a quality line-up, it’s not all about the music. It’s the friendly, party vibe that we create.. and that’s all of us – Crew, Public, Bands. There is no “back-stage” for VIP’s – the whole party is out the front and accessible to everyone. It’s a proper West Country Party.”

An experience borne of Boomtown & Glastonbury

The team – based in Frome and Bath in Somerset combine elements of the areas that they run at Glastonbury & Boomtown to bring along a unique experience at a grass-roots level.

”The overall plan is to have a party that we would want to goto with a friendly vibe and featuring acts that you wouldn’t normally be able to see at an event of this size. We’ve been in the industry for 14+years and over that time have booked across many festivals, enabling us to get acts that would normally be gracing the stages of much bigger events.
Expect local, national and international acts from as far afield as the USA & Europe featuring Swing, Ska, Dub, Folk, Punk, Filthy Blues, Twisted Country, Rockabilly, Bluegrass and
beyond. On top of this there’s workshops, kids entertainment, Game Shows, quality food, drinks at pub prices, beautiful views and possibly the best vibe in The West…”
