The newest addition to Cheltenham's ever-growing line-up of festivals, the Fulltone Music Festival is bringing a very different classical music experience to town on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 August 2023.

Audiences can expect an eclectic mix of classical proms, West End belters and film music, as well as orchestral versions of 80s anthems and Ibiza dance tunes, when The Fulltone Orchestra brings its two-day programme of live music to Cheltenham Racecourse, for an unforgettable summer showcase.

Described as an 'emerging force in the south west music scene', The Fulltone Orchestra features 65 talented musicians from across the region who, led by musical director Anthony Brown, deliver genre-defying performances that take audiences on a journey of musical experiences.

The orchestra established the Fulltone Music Festival in Wiltshire back in 2019 – with this summer marking the event's first foray into Gloucestershire, as it brings its unique performance style and celebratory spirit to Cheltenham.

Cheltenham Fulltone Music Festival features performances from the Fulltone Orchestra itself, as well as special guest sets from funk, house and Latin dance music group, The House Iguanas; New Orleans-inspired brass band, The Brass Junkies; opera and West End singers, The Four Sopranos; and big band, 41º.

Enjoy long days of live music in an iconic outdoor setting, with performances kicking off at 1pm and sounding into the evening; with food and drink stalls, as well as the option to bring a picnic, too.
