The Upton48 team is excited to announce two new festivals in March and October, that will bookend Upton-upon-Severn’s busy spring and summer seasons.

The first new festival, titled ‘Spring Fling’, will be held between the 13th and 15th March 2020. The team believes these festivals will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase the idyllic town and its local businesses. These festivals are planned to become a regular feature for Upton, should the project’s first year be a success.

The name ‘Upton48′ comes from the project’s slogan, ’48 bands in 48 hours’.

The 48 bands heading to Upton will cover a wide variety of genres, from solo acoustic acts to five-piece bands, and the gigs will be spread across ten great venues, with free entry to all guests. Further information, including a full list of Upton48’s venues are available at
