The festival returns to Jersey for 2018!

Weekender is a two-day festival on the Island of Jersey.

There will be music playing, crowds gathering, families laughing, taste buds buzzing, feet tapping, lights flashing, blood rushing, neck tingling, hands reaching, bass lifting and emotions heightened.

In September 2017 the inaugural Weekender Festival turned the Royal Jersey Showground on the beautiful island of Jersey into two days of music, entertainment and new experiences. On the hallowed land designed for creating the island’s biggest events, Weekender embraced the old, added a little new and created the biggest event in the Channel Islanders’ calendar.

The event will take place at Jersey’s tried and test destination for leading events; The Royal Jersey Showground. Utilised for a variety of high profile events, the site is, literally, built for a festival with the ground having played host to over a decade of feet walking between stages, being reinforced all the time to be ready for our first Weekender!

The Showground is located in the country parish of Trinity at the top of Trinity Road close to Trinity Manor.
