Stanhope Weekender is a live music event in the heart of Stanhope, Weardale.

The event owes its existence to two local lads (Lewis & Sean) whose passion for their region led to the creation of a unique experience that serves to both entertain festival-goers and spotlight the mesmerising beauty of Stanhope to a broader audience. Committed to creating unforgettable experiences, the Stanhope Weekender Family ensure that the Weekender is a memorable and affordable occasion for families across the nation (many travel far and wide to attend).

Located within the Stanhope Showground, in Stanhope, which is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), the Stanhope Weekender is conveniently just a brief walk from the town centre. It is celebrated for its exceptional line-ups and unrivalled atmosphere, making it an event not to be missed.

The festival delivers a host of amenities, boasting a fully licensed bar, an assortment of street food vendors, and excellent camping facilities spread across two sites. Upholding its promise to create a family-friendly environment, the Stanhope Weekender warmly welcomes children under 12 at no cost, provided they are in the company of an adult.
