The History of Guilfest
Guilfest, formerly known as Guildford Festival of Folk and Blues and Guildford Live, began in 1992 and is now a 3-day music festival with camping held on Stoke Park in Guildford, Surrey, England every summer.

NOT too big, not too small, Guilfest remains an independently run festival with a very friendly atmosphere, held in the beautiful surroundings of Stoke Park, Guildford over the weekend of the 10th, 11th and 12th July 2009. Visitors can expect a weekend of live musical entertainment coupled with comedy, children´s entertainment, street theatre, theatre tent, art/craft exhibitions, and caterers from around the world providing a variety of meals in a truly festive atmosphere.

With its 150 foot beer tent and calypso cocktail bar, an extensive KidZone and well maintained toilet trailers, Guilfest caters for young and old alike, to local visitors wanting to just come for the day, to families from further a field camping for a 3 day mini holiday! Guildford´s outdoor swimming Lido and Spectrum Leisure Centre on either side of the festival grounds offer easy breaks from the main festival site with a refreshing swim as well as a showering opportunity for the campers. All in all, Guilfest has something for everyone with its friendly relaxed vibe and eclectic mix of music and entertainment, so come along and see for yourself why we´ve been nominated as best family and medium sized festival for the past 3 years.
