SIGNALS one-day festival takes place in a unique and intriguing venue set deep in the heart of the Derbyshire countryside. Experience the unexpected as you immerse yourself in an eclectically programmed day, where outstanding musical talent takes centre stage. As you explore the varied spaces across the site, you’ll discover a diverse mix of culture, film, and entertainment to fuel your senses. With an innovative schedule of activity suitable for all ages, everyone will feel welcome as a liberal sense of fun engulfs this very special site for the day.

Crich Tramway Village in Derbyshire offers the perfect venue for SIGNALS festival, with so much to explore for all the family. Included in your festival ticket is entry to the historical village, complete with old-style sweet shop, retro pub, vintage printing press, and Victorian Tramway Museum. Stroll back in time as you walk the cobbled streets and experience life from a different era, before riding one of the original trams up to the main festival site. 

As you leave the village, you’ll be transported into three acres of wooded countryside as an intricate web of festival activity unfolds before you.
