Main Stage

We've secured our best ever line-up for 2019's FOSStival, including country stars Ward Thomas, a selection of up-and-coming local bands, and young performers from a number of musical projects in the county.

As well as raising money for music and performance at Selborne Primary School, the aim of FOSStival is to create a safe and encouraging environment for young festival-goers and artists.

Music shouldn’t just be something that takes place on television and big arenas - we want young people to develop a passion that will stay with them for the rest of their lives, whether through performance or appreciation.

Whatever music you enjoy, from country to indie, pop to folk and rock, there’s something for everyone in this year’s line-up.

For the first time, this year's FOSStival will conclude with a DJ set of classic 80s tunes, so bring your dancing shoes and prepare to dance into the summer night in the beautiful surroundings of Selborne.

You can listen to our special FOSStival playlist on Spotify or Amazon Music.

Our biggest ever act!

Hawkley-born sisters Catherine and Lizzy are currently promoting their new album “Restless Minds”, the follow-up to their 2016 No. 1 charting major label debut “Cartwheels” which firmly established them as leading exponents of new wave country tinged pop.

We're thrilled to announce that they'll play a short acoustic set at 7.20pm.
