The Rum Shack


A desert outpost with a musical welcome as open as the southern skies, the Rum Shack is the place for the random and unexpected. Soothe your homesick heart with melodies of the blues, folk, reggae, soul and anything else (literally) that pushes through our saloon doors. Main stage acts can come to let their musical hair down along with DJs who’ll play the tracks they’re passionate for.

Expect another merry mash-up of live Blues, Beatbox and Bass, top DJ's and finest rum, from around the world. A barn-storming treat... highlights including John Fairhurst Band, Kate Tempest (full live show), The Beatbox Collective, Rodney Branigan (on two guitars), B.Traits (BBC Radio One), JFB, Cadenza - and Jamaican star Brushy One String's debut at Glastonbury. Hosted by Lyrix Organix.

If that’s not enough chilli heat, there’s our selection of quality rums, as well as, Mexican street food and award-winning BBQ fare of coated chicken wings and ribs. Just when you thought your night couldn’t get any better, this cantina is your perfect late-night stop off for a true, dusty, sweet and soulful experience.

Bring your harmonica, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.
