The Big Festival Weekend is coming to Faringdon Park.

A double-bill of big events will be held in the town centre park on October 29 and 30.

First, The Big Nineties Festival will bring back old favourites to perform live with lasers, smoke machines and light displays throughout the Friday night.

Oktoberfest kicks off the next day for two sessions - 12pm to 5pm and 6pm to 11pm.

There will be entertainment across both sessions including live Oomph bands and DJ sets. Classic German dining such as bratwursts and bier will be served in steins along with other drinks like cider, prosecco, spirits and wine.

Marketing manager Tom Cullen said: “We are super excited to bring a huge weekend of live acts and DJs to Swindon. Following the recent announcement made by the government, events are set to resume from July 19th! Faringdon Park will host a huge weekend of live music, great food and drink, and everyone is invited.

"It has been a very hard time for musicians and all in the events industry. We cannot wait to bring something of this scale to Swindon. We also hope this event can bring a much-needed boost to the economy and the local area.”
