Tickets for In Cider Festival 2020 go on general sale on Sunday 7th April 2020, following a one week priority pre-sale to last year’s ticket holders.
The 3 day indoor festival takes place at Pontins Sand Bay holiday park on the beautiful Sand Bay shoreline just outside Weston-super-Mare, on the weekend of January 31st – February 2nd.
In Cider bridges the gap between summer festival seasons – banishing the winter blues through a winning combination of live music, Bluecoat entertainment, catered accommodation and the friendliest festival crowd on the planet! Here are some video highlights from 2019 to give you an idea of what goes on.
Tickets are £175 per person (no booking fees!) and are charged per accommodation unit (Single, Twin, Double or Triple berth chalets). Premium ‘club’ chalets with upgraded facilities are sold on a first come, first served basis to reward early bird bookings. Tickets include 3 nights half board accommodation, all music and entertainment plus full use of the Pontins leisure facilities including indoor heated swimming pool.
Tickets go on general sale from https://fuelledby.bigcartel.com/ on 7th April at 6pm and we’re expecting high demand following last year’s sold out event!
Our music and entertainment line-up is yet to be released, but you can look at the 2019 poster to see the kind of high level acts that we’ll be aiming to match. The likes of Ferocious Dog, Skinny Lister, Tankus The Henge and Beans On Toast rocked a sold out crowd last winter, and we’ll be aiming for similar high energy, crowd pleasing acts again in 2020!
More information is being regularly posted on our Facebook page so please give us a like and a follow to be sure of being in the know.
West Country favourites Mad Dog Mcrea return to Bath for the first time in 2 years, bringing with them their unique mixture of folk rock, pop, gypsy jazz, bluegrass and ‘shake your ass’ music.

Your mini cider festival and 2019 festival season warm-up line-up:
The Skimmity Hitchers:
Rising from the cider soaked floors of Dorset’s back street boozers, the Skimmity Hitchers now roam the full girth of the West Country and beyond. Bringing their dry and fruity blend of Scrumpy & Western music to venues, festivals and fairs, these scrumpy swillin’ reprobates appeal to young and old, and everyone from folkies to cider punks, beardy badgers to shifty blaggers.
Imprints are a Shanty-Folk-Rock cider fuelled explosion from Bristol. With songs covering everything from Space Pirates to Zelda’s political leanings, from the undead partying to waking up drunk and doing it all over again, Imprints will guarantee foot-stomping fun and the mightiest and fieriest of jigs.
Cut Throat Francis:
Cut Throat Francis are a four-piece band from Bristol, combining Folk, Swing and upbeat Eastern European flavours.
They are also known for the array of instruments they bring to their live show including The Banjo, Mandolin and Melodica as well as rich four-part harmonies and a thumping beat from the Cajon!

Fuelled By Cider’s favourite folk-punkers return to Bristol with an unquenchable thirst for good times and booze, sweet booze on Saturday 20th April.
Smashing their way into the UK folk punk scene since 2013, Black Water County bring an energetic live show of stout quaffing, banjo breaking and tin whistle mangling original music, along with trads and shanties that have been given a good kick up the arse and a slap around the face.
Their live shows, which feature the dual lead vocals of Tim and Shan, are a thing of local legend and awe in their home county of Dorset, usually ending up with band members scattered throughout a frenzied crowd or a shoulder-mounted fiddle solo, to name but a couple of eventualities.
The band have recently released their debut album, TAKING CHANCES (released February 2017), the first taste of which came in the shape of the preceding singles, ‘One More Beer Won’t Hurt’ (released May 2016) and ‘Start Something New’ (released January 2017) and has since been followed by The Painful Truth (released June 2017).
Show-stealing appearances at Beautiful Days, Chagstock, Outcider Festival, Cursus Festival, Great Dorset Steam Fair and more have led to numerous European dates and 2019 looks like a big year for the band.
Support comes from Bristol’s own Cut Throat Francis, a band making a name for themselves on the local scene for their gypsy/swing/jazz sound. Supports with the likes of Imprints and The Baghdaddies and upcoming festival appearances including Outcider Festival have earmarked the band as a definite ‘one to watch’ for 2019.
£8 advance / £10 otd
