Tandem Festival

“Come to listen, learn and dance in the great outdoors”

Intimate, international & eco-friendly, the first Tandem Festival was held in June 2014 with people cycling from across the country & as far afield as Belgium, to convene in Oxfordshire for a long weekend of music-making & celebration.

What binds the Tandem community together is its ethos, fusing community activism, creativity & sustainability. Tandem’s aim is to bring environmental issues to new audiences through the arts, whilst celebrating & promoting a collaboration between the vibrant cultures of Europe & beyond. Since 2014, the 3-day event has been packed with a unique blend of music, talks, workshops, & documentaries from over 100 international artists & 40 community groups, presenting sustainability in an engaging, fun & accessible way.

“Tandem is more than a music festival – it’s a celebration of happy & healthy living” – previous attendee

After a 1-day mini festival Tandem in the Garden in 2016, in partnership with Restore, the full blown Tandem Festival is back this Summer! Transferring Tandem’s unique eco-friendly & community-rooted ethos to Lower Farm, Oxfordshire. The Festival’s return has been heralded with success, as the Super Early Bird tickets have sold out in just a few weeks!


The Festival was born thanks to the initiative of locals deeply rooted in the Oxford community. Today, Tandem is still entirely volunteer-run & continues to work with local institutions, artists & projects, such as Oxford Community Action Groups, OVADA & Low Carbon Oxford.

Tandem now welcomes applications from local & international bands, workshop leaders & traders to become part of the Festival. Everyone is invited to get on board & share a piece of Tandem. Application forms can be completed here.

Listen to our line-up from the previous years here!

Tandem Sundays

Tandem Sunday is our monthly acoustic session at Silvie; a cosy, homey bakery on Iffley Road (OX4). On the menu: workshops, yummy Silvie food & 2 Tandem selected bands. Conceived as mini-festivals, the Tandem Sundays are made for our attendees to get a glimpse of what the Tandem spirit is like. We favour intimate gigs with a small crowd and feature at least one local artist during the evening. Tickets are available monthly on Eventbrite.
