Ventnor International Festival: What Is It?

960 639 Ventnor Fringe

Following a pilot last year which featured intimate performances with the likes of Stealing Sheep in a warehouse, Boogie Belgique in an underground bunker and Dizraeli on a rooftop the Ventnor International Festival is back, much bigger and in a new format. Here’s all you need to know…


Taking place on Friday 11th August, during the week of the Ventnor Fringe, Ventnor International Festival (VIF for short) is a separate one day music festival, focused on promoting the best new music from across the UK and beyond. A ‘city style’ festival, gigs will take place in spaces across Ventnor, in the same way as the Fringe but with one single ticket providing access to all of the venues.

Confirmed acts so far include Childhood, The Parrots, Cosmo Pyke and CHAMPS among many others. Tickets cost £30 and are already selling fast. Early Birds have sold out! Book tickets and find out more here

The Ventnor Fringe will continue to run throughout the week, including on Friday 11th August, with our largest programme to date, spanning theatre, film, music and comedy as well as our usual pop up bars and spaces to explore.
