Kidzfield is the family community at the heart of Glastonbury Festival. The dreams, magic and values that Glastonbury was started with, live on in the The Kidzfield. We’ve got all the usual brilliance that makes Kidzfield one of the most special places on earth, as well as some new LEGENDARY and MAGICAL acts to take things to the next level.

Here is the line-up poster (see below for lots more info).


The Big Top

The loveliest and most brilliant Magician on earth, Dynamo, is back with his awesome, kidz only, stage show. We are absolutely delighted to present, for the first time in the Kidzfield, Basil Brush with his full stage show, boom boom!

Star of CBBC, The Art Ninja has a crazy, creative stage show that will get everyone making things, joining in and Ninja Madness!

Cbeebies favourites Andy, Alex and Katy are bringing their Andy and the Odd Socks show, full of fun, comedy, music and crazy capers. As is the tradition for us, each morning Seikou Susso brings forth the sun with the wondrous sound of the West African Kora.

We have the very best of children’s theatre, treats that include Rhubarb Theatre’s brand new ‘Explorers Galorer’s’ show, DNA Theatre’s ‘Tom Thumb’ and The Flying Seagull Project,

Not forgetting The Star Kids and Mr Yipadee and his four legged friend, this is the Big Top at it’s best!

Out on the field, we are delighted to have all the Kidzfield classics. The Helter Skelter, The Castle, The Big Top, The Pirate Ship, The World Famous Make ‘n’ Do Tent, Swingboats, Roundabouts, Zipwire, Climbing Walls and The Legendary Kidzfield Entrance will all be there.

Around our field we have things to do and see, make or join in with, bounce on, jump off, climb up and fly in. We’ve got castles and aliens, bubbles and clowns, swingboats and roundabouts, explosions, magicians, stuntmen and technicolour nuns.

Little Kidz Area

The National Childbirth Trust

Kidz Field is the space dedicated to kidz at Glastonbury Festival. Glastonbury Festival was founded on, and is committed to, progressive attitudes and inspiring new generations. Children have always been given free admission to Glastonbury and we are the guardians of their domain and facilitators of the largest & finest free festival for kidz in Europe.

The Kidz Field is open from 12pm – 7pm Thursday and 9am til 7pm each day after.

The Kidz Field has a Lost Childrens and a First-Aid post manned by a large group of highly trained professionals.. It is 23 years since the last child was born in the Kidz Field (now a crew member) but we do have a qualified Midwife onsite …

We have a CCTV system to ensure safety and Strawberry Fair stewards are always on hand to keep you safe and ensure that you and yours have a happy childhood at Glastonbury
