So many of you have told us how much you love the 2MEN - our hilarious walkabout duo. " Why fix it if it ain't broken?" is our motto, so we've basically given these two guys a residency here at Bufest......
Wandering around the festival, getting up to all sorts of mischief, make sure you keep an eye out for them, as they'll certainly be keeping an eye out for you!
This year we wanted to come up with something new that you don’t often see at VW Shows (but many of us other dinosaurs can relate too!) … A Dinosaur experience.

BUSFEST EVENING ENTERTAINMENT - POLICY
Our policy at BUSFEST is to provide entertainment across a wide section of genres, for all our guests. During the day, this is not too much of a problem, but at night, things change a bit.......We have to balance a fine line between providing 'Family' areas, as well as having areas that guests without children (over 60% of our attendees) can 'let their hair down' without worrying about offending sensitive minds. Each of our Stages is designed with different sections of our customer base in mind, and below is a description so people are aware of what type of entertainment is going on at each Stage, and whether it is sensible to take children to it.
Although we are not refusing entry to children to any of the Stages, some are more suitable than others for small children. Children (under 16) must still be accompanied by an adult (over 16) at ALL adult Stages. All our customers should be aware that certain stages have behaviour that may/will upset/disturb young impressionable minds and if you have children, you should question whether it is acceptable to take a child into that type of environment. This includes acts on the stage, as well as the punters attending, and may include swearing, pyrotechnics, VERY loud music, offensive lyrics, nudity, violence, upsetting images, smoke machines, lasers, etc:
- Severn Stage. Our main family Stage, with fun and frolics for all ages. (Family)
- Sheepshed Stage. Our Rock and Alternative Stage. (Adult)
- Chill Stage. Our laid-back chilled out Stage. (Family & DOGS)
- Dance Stage. Our pumping dance & trance Stage. (Adult)
- Main Street RADIO Stage. (Family)
What we are saying is:
"Any area that is designated 'Family' will be virtually guaranteed to be a safe environment, with customers and acts who are 'family friendly'. Any area that is designated 'Adult' cannot be guaranteed to be free from adult themes and behaviour, and, as a responsible parent/carer, you should carefully consider before taking young/impressionable children into that environment".
Dogs & Evening Entertainment Venues
We do not recommend that any dogs should be submitted to the noise and stress of the evening entertainment environments
1. Dogs WILL be permitted @ OUTDOOR Entertainment Zones.
2. Dogs are NOT permitted inside the EVENING ENTERTAINMENT PART OF THE MARQUEE
3. Dogs are NOT permitted inside the main part of the SEVERN HALL during the evening entertainments. HOWEVER if conditions (and weather) permit we MAY create a DOG ZONE in the WEST side alcove part of the hall
