Yungblud launches BLUDFEST, a new one-day festival at Milton Keynes Bowl

Internationally acclaimed artist and musician YUNGBLUD has announced the creation of BLUDFEST, a new experiential music, arts and lifestyle festival.

BLUDFEST – which is being produced by AEG Presents – will take place on August 11, 2024 at Milton Keynes Bowl.

Joining YUNGBLUD on the lineup is Grammy-nominated Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty, British rock duo SOFT PLAY and renowned punk rockers The Damned.

The lineup of artists that join the BLUDFEST bill has been curated by YUNGBLUD himself to appeal to a new generation of gig-goers and a younger generation of music fans.

Talking about BLUDFEST, YUNGBLUD aka Dominic Harrison said: “Five years ago we imagined a world of our own. In BLUDFEST, we have physically built one. It feels like the next logical step for me. I want to create a physical safe space where people can come and celebrate the ideologies of this community – where unity, individuality and love is the main focus and we bring the world of Yungblud to fucking life right before your eyes.

“I wanted to build an experience where anybody can be completely themselves, with their friends, their family or completely on their own.

“BLUDFEST will blur the lines of genre and destroy the limitation of imagination. It will be a festival that cuts the corporate bo****ks and is all about the people.

“My plan is to take it worldwide but this summer is the first one and it’s gonna be something no one has ever seen before in the UK.”

The one-day festival will be home to activations throughout the venue to encourage community and connection, including a Make A Friend tent that encourages fans to connect and make new friends, free photobooths to document their BLUDFEST experience, a YUNGBLUD museum that will showcase artefacts from across his career.

One of the festival’s bars will be remodelled to emulate YUNGBLUD’s favourite pub, Camden’s The Hawley Arms, and fans can tuck into their very own branded burger, The BludBurger.

Tickets for BLUDFEST go on sale on March 22 and will be priced at £49.50 plus fees.
