Forbidden Forest Festival


2nd - 4th June | 2023 | Entry from 12 noon
Belvoir Castle, Nottinghamshire
Tickets from £50.50

Following the first-ever camping edition of the Festival in July 2022, which saw a Forbidden Family of more than 30,000 gather in the grounds of the stunning Belvoir Castle to celebrate their shared love of electronic music, 2023 marks the return of Forbidden Forest for its eighth magical year.

Forbidden 2023 is set to be the biggest event and artist lineup to date. Moving to a new weekend in the festival calendar, the 2023 festival will take place across 3 enchanted days from 2-4 June, officially marking the start of the summer in the unique way that only Forbidden Forest can. Expect the best of the best talent across House, Tech House, Techno and D'n'B, with a line up of over 50 outstanding artists, providing a stand-out soundtrack for a forest rave like you've never experienced before. This year, Forbidden Forest will be set across four stages within four unique areas of the one-of-a-kind festival backdrop: The Bunker, The Manor, The Reactor and new for 2023, The Castle.

Described as a 'phenomenal experience that transcends any other festival' by fans who attended in 2022, Forbidden Forest 2023 is one not to miss.
