After a two-year break, The Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham is delighted to share the great news that it’s popular free music festival, Summer Jam is returning.  Taking place on Friday 29 – Sunday 31 July 2022, this year promises to be the best yet.

Now in its fifth year, the festival has gained recognition and increased association with Lakefest – the region’s biggest family friendly festival – and will therefore be partnering together.

Summer Jam 2022: The Lakefest Warmup will be three jam-packed days of live music and DJs, including Lakefest’s firm favourites, such as The Roving Crows, Erica, The Brethren, The Shakes, Lisa Unique, Glastonbury DJ Joei Supernova and DJ Shippers – all of whom promise to get people up on their feet dancing – or at least feet tapping as you sip your drinks sat in the sun!

Also on the hot list are previous Summer Jam favourites; Camilla Lewington and her band Just Shut up and Dance, along with The Kingsley Salmon Band, and The Mark Walby Band.

Featuring an eclectic line-up of acts from pop to rock, folk to funk indie to reggae – there is something to suit all tastes.

Alongside the music, some of the bars and restaurants from within The Brewery Quarter will be coming out to play, including newest bar Brewdog; The Alchemist; Brewhouse & Kitchen and The Botanist, who will be offering beers, cocktails, wine and soft drinks on different days, whilst restaurant guests are encouraged to sit outside to enjoy the atmosphere with some alfresco dining.

If you’ve not purchased a Lakefest weekend ticket yet, Summer Jam may give you a flavour of what to expect.  Tickets will be on sale at Lakefest’s shop at the Summer Jam event.

Lee Martin, founder of Lakefest commented “We’re delighted to be collaborating with The Brewery Quarter and giving the people of Gloucestershire a taste of Lakefest.  Our own festival takes place a couple of weeks later, in the beautiful Eastnor Castle country estate, on 11-14th August.  Our festival offers people a jam-packed weekend escape, with family friendly laid-back vibes, awesome music, street theatre, red arrows, wrestling, and SO much more. We hope that Summer Jam: the Lakefest Warmup encourages people to grab some last minute tickets while they’re there!”
