An amazing 26 plus years ago, Andy and Boz (who would like to deny they’re old enough) were promoting local gigs in and around Derby and wanted to expand. When Andy stayed at the Donington Park Farmhouse Hotel he found the perfect place to start a festival. Less than a year later, Off The Tracks was up and running.

On a gorgeously sunny Saturday in July 1988, the first Off The Tracks was staged. Local heroes No Right Turn topped the bill with great support from just a handful of other local bands.

Boz and Andy say: “Because we’re independent and sponsor-free we’ve never lost the original ethos of Off The Tracks – chilled, family-friendly, with as much relaxation or excitement as you could wish for – you choose!

On a quest to create the perfect small festival they’ve been named a top ‘Small is Beautiful Festival’ by the Sunday Times.”
