Welcome to HBMF


Hastings Beer and Music Festival is a 4 day event organised by Hastings Round Table. It is entirely organised and ran by amazing volunteers, and every single penny (over £1m to date) of profit goes back into the local community

Helping the community


Dozens of lovely local ales; top local bands; international DJ superstars; some mouth watering food vendors; It’s own Gin/Rum/Prosseco tent; One of the biggest dance floors known to man; And all put together and ran 100% by volunteers! AND, every penny of profit goes back to help the local community

Since 2018 has been based at The Oval

This move meant we have the enormous space to accommodate the 75 x 45 metre big top as well as the dozens of portaloos, additional massive Ale Tent, the Gin/Rum/Pimms/Prossecco tent and a smorgasbord of food vendors.
Great sea views top the site off
