Forest Live takes place in June & July every Summer. An independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission to bring forests to new audiences, the festival showcases an eclectic mix of acts performing in seven spectacular forest locations across the country.

Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England’s forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife. Over Forest Live’s 15 year history, over one million music fans have attended the concerts and money raised has contributed to a wide range of projects, from wildlife conservation to making improvements for visitors.

With everything required for a great night out, including full catering and bar facilities, the gigs are renowned for their relaxed atmosphere.

Forest Live in this region takes place in Dalby Forest near Pickering and this year’s headline acts are:

  • Guy Garvey with special guest C Duncan - Friday 24 June

  • John Newman + plus special guest Rag ‘n’ Bone Man - Saturday 25 June

  • Kaiser Chiefs with special guests Spring King and support from Vitamin - Sunday 26 June
