Balter 2020 Lineup

The Balter Festival 2020 main lineup release!!


We’re super excited to announce the main lineup for Balter 2020. With some massive artists ranging from Punk to DnB, Hip Hop to Hardcore and just about every good style in-between, we feel like its our best lineup ever and we hope you enjoy it!

Welcoming headliners The Four Owls for the first time, with a new album coming soon this will be a treat for any High Focus fans. Joining them on the Caravan stage will be acts such as Slamboree, Smerins Anti-Social Club, Too Many T’s, Ed Cox & E-Coli, Pengshui, Gardna and many more.

The Hex and Buckyham Palace are catering for those who love amens, basslines, snares, foghorns, DnB, Jungle and all such like! Headliners Kings Of The Rollers & Inja are joined by A.M.C & Phantom, Chopstick Dubplate, Original Sin, T>I b2b Kelvin 373 with Irah, and a huge Critical Sound takeover ft. Enei, Kasra and special guest Bou. Amongst many many more!!

Fans of harder music are never left uncatered for at Balter and this year we’re expecting to see arms flailing and brains being blown by Hellfish b2b The Teknoist (first time ever!), Mat Weasel Busters performing a live set, Ceephax Acid Crew, Igneon System, Vandal b2b Mandidextrous, Tanukichi, and Malke performing a live drums hardcore set. Of course there are plenty more to see, check out the full lineup for a treat of heavy kicks, distorted breaks, and all-round filthy noises!

Off Me Nut are crashing the party in style, bringing their headliners Hixxy, Jamie Duggan and Taxman as well as all of their crew such as Phatworld, Ben Suff Donk, Thorpy, Deadbeat UK, Spongebob Squarewave and many many more! That stage is going to be a serious highlight this year!

Another new stage, The Northern Embassy, is also going to be kicking off all weekend. With The Whistlers headlining and joined by DJ Smurf, Stretch MC, and a whole load of northern crew playing Makina and other fun genres of music, this will be the place to be if you like going mental to some banging tunes!!

Fans of techno should be happy with Apollo 23, blasting off each evening to the noises from Altern 8, Mark EG, D.A.V.E The Drummer, Chris Liberator, 2 Bad Mice and more. On Saturday it will be taken over all night by the Japan Crew who are bigger than ever this year and will be bringing a taste of the east to Chepstow. Do not miss that one! 

Abba Gabba are headlining the Dutty Disco, with the rest of that lineup still to come.


Balter Festival 2020 is definitely on the way now, make sure you grab your tickets soon as this year is the one to be at!!

Fancy camping

Fed up of dragging your tent that long 200m walk from the car to the campsite?
Wish you didn’t have to pack it up at the end?

Have no fear – Balter’s very own posh campsite is here!
You don’t even have to be posh, although pretending to be is recommended.

We have yurts and bell tents, with prices starting at just £60 per person (£20 a night!)

As well as fully equipped tents with beds and lights, you have access to a dedicated reception yurt with free charging facilities, hair tools and large mirrors. Camping is right on the edge of the normal campsite so you are just seconds away from all the action, but in your own separate area surrounded by other people pretending to be posh!

Honestly, it’s better than that rubbish Argos pop-up tent you complain about every year yet always drag along with you!
