Cloudspotting Music and Arts Festival is a long summer weekend retreat presented by a collective of local programmers, produces and other creative organisations working in the music and arts. . This year is our 7th event and the fifth at Gisburn Forest. We are family friendly – but by no means family exclusive – kids bring a magical spirit to the festival, encouraging an inclusive atmosphere.

Approaching our 7th year, we have brought together our most exciting programme yet. Alongside two stages of emerging and established alternative music, we will present touring family theatre, interactive arts, music workshops, themed arts and crafts, fine food and a fabulous selection of ales and entertainment in our Beer Tent. 

We let the programme breathe and encourage a strong audience for all our performances, allowing our visitors valuable time to hang out and party together! That’s not to say there won’t be early starts and late finishes! At Cloudspotting you choose which end of the candle you’d like to burn down.

 The high proportion of returning attendees has made for an intimate and extremely friendly festival. 

We hope you enjoy our site and find enough information to make the choice to join us an easy one. If you do want to hit us up for more information., please contact or sign up with your email address for regular e-bulletins.
