Poole Harbour Festival 2024 isset to be the biggest yet!


Get ready for the ultimate family live music experience this summer in Poole and Bournemouth, where thousands of music enthusiasts will gather for the area’s most anticipated weekend event.
With an early bird special offering savings of up to £30, eager fans are securing their spots well ahead of the festivities.
This year’s festival is boasting a line-up that includes the iconic Razorlight, the revitalised sounds of The Coral, and the 90s chart-toppers Reef. The line-up also features The South – former members of The Beautiful South– the 90s indie icons Toploader, the comeback of Southampton’s Artful Dodger, the energetic folk punk Ferocious Dog, and the crowd-pleasing Dr Meaker.
‘Last year’s festival was the best yet in terms of line up – we’re definitely putting Poole Harbour Festival on the map,’ says festival organiser Ben Dyas, who has been listening to the feedback on last summer’s event. ‘Last year we had so many last minute ticket buyers that we did have queues, but we’ve learned a lot from that and this year we’ll have more and bigger bars, many extra toilets, easier entry and more staff and security across the site, with better signage for things like water points and toilets.
‘It’s going to be a brilliant weekend!’

Four stages and 50 acts
The dance tent is set to pulsate with beats from the legendary Lisa Lashes, chart-toppers Ultrabeat, the inventive Jaguar Skills, and the renowned Seb Fontaine. Fans of tribute acts will be thrilled by performances celebrating the music of Queen, Madness, Ed Sheeran, Amy Winehouse, and, for the first time, Fleetwood Mac.
With an impressive line-up of 50 acts spread across four stages, the festival also proudly showcases top local talent from the BCP area, including the infectious Mother Ukers, the Americana sounds of Sixteen String Jack, the energetic Celtic punk of Blackwater County, and folk favourite Gaz Brookfield.

Not just about the music
The festival’s renowned family-friendly vibe includes free circus performances, kids’ entertainment, dinosaur shows, and activities throughout the weekend. Coupled with affordable ticket prices, the Poole Harbour Festival promises a perfect start to a summer by the sea.
‘It’s the party weekend that Poole is now famous for!’ says Ben. ‘And people can help make the event even better by taking advantage of the much cheaper launch offer tickets – this really helps us plan and book the facilities needed.’

  • Poole Harbour Festival is on 26th – 28th July. It opens at 5pm on Friday, 12 noon on Saturday and 11am on Sunday, closing at 11pm on Friday and Saturday and 7pm on Sunday. Tickets available now at pooleharbourfestival.com.
