Balter Festival 2014

Balter Festival is a three day event held in the grounds and buildings of the magnificent Baskerville Hall in South Wales, well within two hours drive of Bristol. We have brought together some of the best live bands and DJs from the international underground music scene for this extremely exclusive event.

Balter offers four decor laden stages featuring projection mapping, VJs and Void sound systems through out that will be smashing out the best in ska, hip hop, reggae, gypsy, klezmer, punk, rock, jungle, breakcore, ghetto funk, electro swing, bashment, grime, juke, DnB, techno, hardcore, hardtek, bassline, old-skool, and good old fashioned cheese.

As well as the huge line up you will also find a swimming pool, ball pit, circus & walkabout acts, funky stalls, free camping, great food, and a whole load more fun and games.
