This year’s Gig on the Green music festival will once again be a spectacular weekend of fun, music and entertainment for all the family.
For the fourth year the festival will once again be held over two days on the weekend of Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 June 2018. Both days will be jam-packed with high energy music, dancing and fun, featuring a selection of the UK’s best tribute acts, interspersed with the very best local musical talent. Bring your own picnics, or enjoy meals, drinks and snacks from the many food outlets, bars and stalls. Bring your friends and family and join the party. We can’t wait! Can you?
We have another fantastic selection of tribute acts booked for 2018. Saturdays line-up will feature Maroon 4, Taylor Swift Tribute, Take That Experience, Stevie One and an amazing 80s selection from the Wild Boys. On Sunday don't miss Katy Perry Tribute, Abba Fever, Classic Clapton Unplugged and Oasish. Full details are on our Bands page.
Local acts will be announced soon.
Organised by Yateley Sports CIC and now in its eighth year, the Gig on the Green has become a highlight of the Yateley social calendar, bringing together the local community in a real family and friends-oriented event where all profits go towards supporting the sports facilities being developed around Yateley United Football Club.
Yateley is located in the north east corner of Hampshire close to the M3 and A30.
Gig on the Green Yateley will be taking place on Yateley Green, in between Reading Road and Firgrove Road. The Ticket Entrance on the day will be via a Firgrove Road entrance, near to the Car Park.
There will be limited car parking provided on the adjacent playing field to Yateley Green, adjacent to Firgrove Lane. Please respect our neighbours by parking responsibly and leaving the site quietly. If you live in Yateley, why not walk down to the Green?
If you live a bit further afield, please try to use public transport where possible as parking will be limited.
Yateley is served by the following bus service:
Stage Coach, Number 3 & 10 (www.stagecoachbus.com)
Fleet Station on the London Waterloo – Basingstoke line
Sandhurst or Blackwater Stations on the Reading – Guildford – Gatwick line
Come down with all the family with your deck chairs to enjoy a sunny, summer weekend. If you’d like to make a picnic of it you are welcome to bring food and drink with you. If you’d prefer not to, we will have plenty of stalls and concession stands selling food, drinks and snacks on site on both days. There will even be Ice Cream Vans! Ticket holders can bring in alcoholic drinks for their own consumption until 8pm. After 8pm, alcohol MAY NOT be brought into the festival. This applies to both admissions and re-admissions.
In response to previous requests, we are offering the opportunity to book a gazebo space for this year. There will be a limited number of spaces available for your gazebos on a first come, first served basis. The cost of a space is £35 and once payment is received your space will be allocated. Gazebo pitches can be booked through our online booking system. Only pre-booked gazebos will be permitted on site.
