Looe Music Festival is always mid to late September. (The dates move with the tides and we need as much beach as possible for the main stage and enclosure.)
The fun starts at 4pm on the Friday and the stages close at around 10pm on the Sunday although the entertainment continues in the local bars until late.
A lot of people have asked why September? The simple answer is Looe is full to bursting in the summer months. The long answer is that one of the main aims of the festival is to extend the summer season for local businesses. September’s a quiet month and towns like Looe are massively dependent on tourism. Besides, having a big party a few weeks after all the holidays have finished seemed like a good way of cheering everyone up.
