The festival has several stages, Site Art Installations, Wild Spa, Crafts Area, Healing Garden, huge Children’s Area, Walkabout Theatre, Play Zones in campsites, family camping, real ale bars from Otter Brewery, Folk Sessions and a vast selection of carefully chosen food & craft stalls. Beautiful Days has no sponsorship, branding and does not advertise.


Moovin Festival

Dub Pistols are delighted to be making their debut at Moovin Festival in Preston
Having heard so many good things about the festival over the past few years Barry Ashworth said “its an honour to have been invited to join the line up and can’t wait to play this fantastic event”
Independent throughout and with a counter cultural feel and devotion to booking the freshest acts and performers, Moovin Festival is a laid back way to catch an eclectic mix of favourite acts as well as exciting new artists. It’s about making new mates and discovering new sounds; it’s a place to enjoy ethically sourced foods and cocktails, to try some holistic healing treatments and enjoy circus performers, festival fun and surprises to help you forget the outside world for a magical weekend.

So get Moovin, get your tickets and see you in the fields!


Moovin Festival takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend at the eco-friendly Whitebottom farm, Etherow Country Park in the stunning countryside in Compstall (Just 30 minutes from Manchester), you find it through a magical canopy of trees, past a lake with waterfowl greeting you, and a breathtaking gorge welcoming you at the entrance.

Whilst the line ups are big the capacity is limited as to keep it friendly and personal as we feel this is what makes our little festival special. Stages include the Barn Stage, a large open sided cow shed with bales of hay to relax and chill on, as well as sound systems throughout the site that are guaranteed to knock your festival wellies off.

Dub Pistols have been put forward for BEST LIVE ACT in the Independent Music Awards. This is the indie record label version of The Brits.
They truly deserve it.. anyone who knows Barry Ashworth knows how hard him and his band work… and they are really brilliant live headlining loads of festies and smashing all their gigs.. They should win this but can’t without winning a public vote so I’d be massively grateful if you could please take 30 secs to vote and if poss share
