KITE Festival is a brand new festival of ideas and music for curious, inquisitive and cultural minds, taking place in Kirtlington Park. The three day event will feature a mix of live music, comedy and educational talks from a pioneering lineup.

A bold line up presented across four stages. Focused on alternative music drawing from indie, folk, soul and musical traditions from around the world. Music to make you dance, to help you think and lose yourself in the moment. From intimate shows allowing you to get up close and personal with artists to open arenas where the biggest acts in the world can spread their wings.

KITE festival will offer room to dance and space to think. In an age defined by the ubiquity of the internet and social media, there is a growing public appetite for knowledge, debate, and discussion. Audiences are looking for more alternative and non-musical activities at music festivals. KITE will rise to the challenge by creating a unique offering for people who are passionate, and curious by tapping into the public’s increased awareness and interest in the world around them.
