Welcome to the APPFEST COMMUNITY

Daniel Pardoe set up APP-FEST in 2008, under the original name Farmers Arms Apperley Festival, which was located in a small rural village near Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire. It was here, where Daniel had the privilege of being the pubs landlord for over 10 years, where the event was hosted in the pub’s large gardens and adjacent farmers’ fields.

It was during the first year that locals from the village suggested to change the name to APP-FEST and so our charity, community festival was born. Daniel envisaged APP-FEST as a way to bring together the local communities and raise money for local and national charities through our love of great music. Over the years, the event has raised money and awareness for many charities including Winston’s Wish, Cancer Research, Help For Heroes, Air Ambulance and many more. One of Daniel’s passions include working closely with local communities, developing relationships and striving to help others who are struggling and doing what he can to support others in need.

Daniel’s passion for music begun at an early age after a serious accident which left him mentally and physically in a lot of pain. It was then that he found that music was a way of channelling his feelings and helping with his depression. Music has seriously helped Daniel over the years and you will often see Daniel singing a song or humming a tune as he works, its just a shame he can’t sing a note.

APP-FEST ran for 10 years at The Farmers Arms selling out every year and being enjoyed by many thousands of people over the years. People not only from the local Gloucestershire communities started supporting the event, but from further afield to the stage where the event and so had outgrown the land available. A difficult decision had to be made and that was to relocate the event to a new venue that could support the numbers and continue to benefit the local communities and charity partners.

The FUTURE

After all the issues that we have all endured during the Covid-19 pandemic which has resulted in two years of postponements, we are now extremely excited and driving forward towards APP-FEST 2022, that will be held from Thursday 28th July to Sunday 31st July 2022.

We have continuously added extra days and extra bands as a way to offer excitement and reward for the APP-FEST community to stay engaged and have something extra special to look forward to. We are very much towards the end of our planning stages and have finalised a line up that offers unbelievable value for money. The new venue at Hillworth Farm, Longdon near Tewkesbury has the land, scenery, amazing views and the opportunity to grow the event for many years to come and we feel it gives us all a very exciting future.

We will continue putting our best foot forward, working tirelessly to bring you an event the APP-FEST community can be proud of and we will continue to work passionately for the benefit our of local communities and our charity partners.
