Forest Live 16

Forest Live takes place June – July every Summer.

An eclectic mix of acts perform in seven spectacular forest locations across the country.

Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission to bring forests to new audiences.

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.
