Magical: a community of people connected through their desire to improve themselves and the world around them.

Magical is a micro 3-day, music, arts and wellness festival for all ages, held in the parkland at Borde Hill. As well as having fantastic musicians and DJs to make you dance like there’s no tomorrow our aim is for 1,000 people to express and find themselves through a unique and diverse programme of activities.

Expect a wonderful crowd of people of all ages, festi dress-up, a programme of uplifting multi-genre music; a mix of live acts and DJs (many of which you may not have heard of, but we can assure you will LOVE!) and opportunities to participate and get involved! (Including the infamous Magical parade!).

Plus, the site itself is very special. Everything is organised to maximise the Magical vibe and minimise waste. From our beautiful festival playground to the delicious local food & drink vendors – and most importantly, tons of like-minded people.

You will leave the youiest you!
