Lazydays is flipping the traditional beer festival on its head to create an innovative experience like no other.
A true celebration of all things craft, from local gin and tonic with the best-paired garnish, to independent Essex wine-makers, refreshing cocktails, English-apple cider and a huge selection of craft beers and lagers.
Our music lineup is topped by some of the UK’s finest talent, including BBC 6music funk & soul DJ, Craig Charles, indie rock band, The Futureheads, BBC Radio 1xtra legend, David Rodigan and β€˜90s album charting, Sleeper.
