About the festival

Coventry Godiva Festival is billed as the UK’s biggest free family music festival and is now in its 19th year. Based in the city’s historic War Memorial Park, the three-day event offers great live music, family entertainment, international food and drink, craft village and children’s fun fair!

Organised by Coventry City Council with the support of partners, the festival prides itself on offering the best of Coventry and Warwickshire backed up by top national artists and performers. 

Five stages, four tents, three days, two fields, one fantastic festival!

Godiva Festival takes place over the first weekend of July each year. There are five stages in total across the Main Arena and Family Field:

  1. Main Stage - A mixture of big names and local talent! 
  2. Rock/Rhythm Tent - On Friday night, the tent becomes the Rock Tent, full of rock and metal, and by Saturday, rap, grime and acoustic sets take to the stage. 
  3. Paradise Tent - Family comedy, street theatre and young entertainers, plus a silent disco!
  4. Acoustic Stage - Acoustic sets. 
  5. Community Stage - A stage for community groups to perform, including local dance troupes, choirs and youth theatre

The Urban Youth Tent features music and general advice for young people in the city.
