 Dadstonbury: Win your dad his own festival for Father’s Day

Calling all dad dancers…to celebrate Father’s Day this year, Buyagift are giving dads across the nation the chance to attend the ultimate stay-at-home festival – Dadstonbury – in their own back yard.

Promising to be a celebration of dad dancing, dad jokes, dad bods and dad-chat about DIY, Dadstonbury is the UK’s first ever ‘dads only’ festival experience: including a live performance from an Oasis covers band so they can party like it’s 1999 all over again.

Dadstonbury was launched today with a cheeky parody of the infamous Fyre Festival promotional video, featuring real dads, rather than Bella Hadid, and a British back garden instead of the Bahamas. Yet unlike the Fyre Festival, Dadstonbury is the first festival where supermodels, trendy influencers and teenage YouTubers are banned. And of course, it will actually happen.

Buyagift will be providing everything you’d expect at a festival from a range of their experience suppliers. This will include refreshing beer and delicious barbeque food such as gourmet burgers and hotdogs.

In the run up to Father’s Day, families will have the opportunity to nominate a deserving Dad to win this prize by submitting a picture of their garden through Buyagift’s website. ‘Dadstonbury’ will then be brought straight to the winners back garden.

There will even be a live band so all dad dancing can be thoroughly enjoyed without any family embarrassment. The lucky Dad will be revealed on Father’s Day, with the festival happening over the weekend of 29th– 30th June. 


Dan Mountain, CEO of said: “Whether it’s at a major festival or simply in their own back yard, dads are constantly told their dance moves, music tastes and jokes are ‘cringe’ by their kids. This summer one lucky dad will can have their very own festival for him and his mates, to let their Dads bods hang out – without being told by their partners or kids to tone it down.

To enter the competition, head to this page on the Buyagift website and submit your embarrassing Dad and a picture of that garden that you will host your Dadstonbury festival. The competition closes on Monday 10th June 2019 and the winner will be selected on Father’s Day.
