Description

Greenbelt Festival may appear to be a massive Christian music festival, but scratch beneath the surface and you'll discover the experience is more complex and special than you thought. Sure, the biggest names in Christian music grace the stage, but they have been joined in recent years by mainstream headliners like U2, Moby, Amy Grant, Aqualung, The Proclaimers and more. The festival attracts over 20,000 music lovers and campers each year. They come for the music, but also for the robust program of visual and performing arts, spirituality, comedy and discussion. While the festival is firmly rooted within a Christian tradition, that doesn't mean the discussion shy away from controversial topics. In fact the festival has a spirit of inclusiveness and acceptance that is honestly refreshing. The festival always takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend.
