"Wow! What an event we had in 2022, music, fun, dancing and all the seasons in one day!"

2022 combined a mix of local performers together with Nine Below Zero, Miss Disco and a set by Danny Rampling! Now we are looking to build on our success and are already getting excited at the prospect of 2023’s festival line up.

This time we are teaming up with the Helen Rollason Cancer Charity to help raise money for their amazing work, so please invite all your friends to buy tickets to help with this wonderful charity and enjoy another brilliant day of music at the Great Dunmow Summer Solstice Festival!

Great Dunmow Summer Solstice members have been hard at work rigorously scouring the country to source a fabulous selection of bands for 2023.

We’re excited to have secured two nationally acclaimed headline acts with outstanding  credentials and reviews.  Plus lots more…

Keep an eye on the website for updates and watch out for our social media announcements about who we have secured and for more information about ticket release.

So go ahead, come and join us for another blast in 2023! There will be plenty of food and drink available together with lots of friends old and new, so buff up your boogie boots and come and come and dance your feet off!

All best! The GDSS Festival Organising Committee.

21st June 2025

After careful consideration, we have decided that the next Music Festival will be in 2025 on Saturday 21st June!
So in 2024, Great Dunmow can focus on the Flitch Trials, and the GDSS team can work hard on producing an even bigger and better event. We want even more people to enjoy the music!
