Hidden within a tree-lined valley in North Cornwall, Leopallooza Festival will be returning to Bude on Friday 27 - Sunday 29 July 2018. The homespun event will pop up at The Wyldes site on Lower Exe Farm for three days of live music, DJs, comedy, the finest street food and the tastiest beers and ciders. From live, late-night partying in tiny spaces, to hours of belly-filled laughter, this year’s event brings a string of exciting new happenings to the green fields and woodlands that cover the 100-acre site.

Leopallooza has announced its first headline act set to take to the main stage on the Sunday night will be St. Paul and the Broken Bones. Hailing all the way from Alabama, the six-piece soul band will deliver a high-voltage performance; their most recent concert work included arena dates opening for the Rolling Stones in Atlanta and Buffalo.
