The second edition of Tandem, Oxfordshire’s eclectic sustainable music festival is back for Summer Solstice weekend (19th-21st June)

One of the first and most unique festivals of the Summer is returning to its beautiful rural site just outside of Oxford to bring you an exciting three day celebration of the vibrant cultures across Europe.Intimate and eco-friendly, the festival was first conceived as a means to bring environmental issues to new audiences through the arts in a fun and accessible way, whilst promoting the collaboration of international musicians and artists.

After a successful 2014 debut, acts will once again be cycling form Italy, Netherlands, France and UK cities to convene at the 62 acre Hill End Outdoor Education Centre site in Oxford.

This year's line up is an exciting mix of folk, jazz, gypsy, afrobeat, balkan brass and experimental music including Òkina, The Turbans, Balloon Ascents, Tribe of Tinkers, Art Thiefe, and Bossaphonik DJ Dan Ofer, on stages curated by Nightscapes productions, Sofar Sounds, and Oxford’s own Catweazle Club. 

There's lots to love and to learn away from the music too. Alongside the live stages, will be a whole host of interactive activites and performances– from bushcraft, storytelling, upcycling, and holistic relaxation, to pop-up theatre, writing workshops, a spoken word stage, live visual art creation, a seasonal openair restaurant and upcycled hot tubs, to name a few.

The adventures don't just start when the gates open– there'll be organised bike rides from hubs across the UK and Europe in order to promote eco-friendly transport as a sociable fun experience to audience and artists alike.

Don't worry if you can't stay for the whole weekend, there's plenty of Day passes available too. So whether you want to dance til you drop to the gypsy rhythms of The Turbans at the mainstage on Friday evening, take part in the antics of Apple Cart's topsy turvy promenade theatre on Saturday or lie back and enjoy story telling from some of Oxford's most promising new writers with Emma Press on Sunday there's something for everyone throughout the three days.
