The immensely popular VW festival Bug Jam is back for the 28th time, and based on previous events this one will be a corker (no seriously, this event just gets better every year)!
Sprechen sie Dub?
While Bug Jam is aimed towards the die-hard Volkswagen enthusiast, there is still plenty going on for those who just fancy a great weekend out with the family.
Events and attractions
This event is shaping up to be no less manic than previous years with plenty going on that will keep petrol-heads and VW fans entertained for hours.
As Santa Pod is one of the world's most famous drag racing strips, expect plenty of races taking place with world class machines tearing up and down the 1/4 mile strip all weekend.
On Friday and Saturday you can get your own motor onto the strip with the RWYB (Run What Ya Brung) races. With unlimited runs and a full performance print out for each run - you can be sure that there will be plenty of friendly rivalry taking place! (Full driving licences required.)
There will also be a lot of car shows, with the fantastic VW Rust & Rat as well as VW Show & Shine events taking place and awards for the best cars on show!
What with this being a festival, you can expect some of the best bands to be playing. This event will be hosting the likes of:
Friday: The Ordinary Boys, Mused, Hot Red Chillie Peppers, Raindance with Shades of Rhythm, Strictly Disco, and Indie DJs.
Saturday: Cuban Brothers, Judge Jules, Call Me Blondie, Ultra 90s, and Rock DJ Alex Baker.
During the daytime there will be a Live Stage area with musicians playing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, the line-up is to be confirmed.
The Bugwam is making a comeback and is still the perfect place to relax and chill out with live acoustic music, DJs, and a licensed bar.
There will also be a host of comics at this year's event - you can view the line up on the Comedy Guide page.
The list of events and attractions taking place at the 28th Bug Jam is almost too long to list, rest assured there will be plenty to keep you occupied all weekend long!
