Tandem Festival celebrates international culture, fosters cooperation & inspires change. Come along to share in the Tandem community, a uniquely Tandemised 3-day journey on the border of the Cotswolds.
Cycle-powered and volunteer-fuelled, Tandem Festival is a journey of discovery… You’ll be transported to different worlds through music, arts & performance. Tandem’s talks, workshops, film screenings and ethically sourced vegetarian and vegan food will bring new facets of yourself to life!

This year we are moving our local festival to the wonderful Lower Farm in Ramsden. If you have ideas, suggestions, or just want to get involved, please get in touch – we’d love to hear from you! Explore photos of our past events in our lovely new gallery.
Music & Arts
At Tandem Festival, listening is key. Our acoustic performance spaces, from barns to yurts, will bring you closer to the music, enabling the rediscovery of sound without large amplification. We encourage bands to turn off their amps and explore what they can do without them: expect to catch unique and intimate performances. By night, our outdoor main stage comes into action. This amplified space brings the whole festival together for en-masse music and dance!
We’re not just a music festival though – there will also be theatre, dance, writing workshops, and art installations to tickle all your senses.
At Tandem we believe in sustainable living, and this is an ethos we want to share with our audience. At the Festival’s last edition, we brought together over 50 community groups delivering talks, workshops and films that presented eco-friendliness in a way that’s engaging, fun and relevant. Alongside this, we work with artists in all mediums to produce art inspired by the environment and climate change.
We are lucky to know some incredible musicians and artistic talents local to Oxford – but we’re also part of a global family with rich and diverse cultures, and we want to celebrate that too! We invite artists and performers from across Europe and beyond to join us, bringing you specially-selected, talented emerging artists who rarely play in the UK.
We also encourage our artists to use the most eco friendly method of transport possible – look out for bike convoys coming from several European countries!
