Running for the second year on the 14th and 15th of July 2018, this travel-based music and performance extravaganza is for those who have grown tired of the large impersonal corporate festivals that dominate the special events scene.
Appealing to globetrotters, seasoned travellers, those with a love of dreaming about faraway lands or those who just want to experience a festival showcasing something a little different, Atlas Festival is a celebration of music, food, drinks, and entertainment from around the world. There are several countries to explore, and with many different classes, workshops, musicians, performers, inspirational speakers, outdoor activities, films, and secret areas to keep you entertained all weekend, there really is something for everyone.
Featuring world music, pop, rock, drum ‘n’ bass, indie, hip hop, rap, techno, r‘n’b, dance, electronic, plus plenty more genres, Atlas really does have music to tickle most ears. We are adding more to the lineup all the time so check our music and entertainment pages for the latest names including our headliners, inspirational speakers and travel bloggers.
The difference between Atlas and other ‘world music’ festivals is that we are not just focusing on the music from other countries but also the experiences you get whilst travelling- the good, the crazy and the really different…! We have loads in our gorgeous parkland to discover, including unique shopping and delicious world food and drink plus much, much more...
Explore the site to see what we have to offer, but be warned… Atlas is more addictive than any travel bug you’ve had before!

Where We Are
Atlas Festival 2018 will once again be held amongst the beautiful parkland at the gloriously stunning Scampston Hall in North Yorkshire. The self-proclaimed (but fully deserving) 'God's Own County' regularly tops various travel publications within the 'Top Places to Visit' lists. Where better to host a festival dedicated to the best the world has to offer than within the rolling hills, gorgeous scenery and open spaces of Yorkshire?! Fear not though, travellers. Whilst the journey here may seem further than the overland trip between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, it is actually very well connected. York is the nearest major station which is easily accessible from most of the UK (trust us, we've checked!) and it's not far to Malton where you can catch a short taxi or bus to the festival site. Alternatively if you're driving follow signs to the A64 and Scampston Hall is around halfway between York and Scarborough.
