How to get there

Unlike the  Godiva Festival  - a Coventry mainstay, Coombe Weekender is not a city centre event, which comes with a number of logistical issues.

Coombe Country Park is certainly a scenic destination, but not necessarily the easiest location to get to.

With this in mind, the organisers have planned a number of solutions. Event director Ben Prince said: "The main challenge has been access, although thanks to our amazing licensing and traffic management team, people should be able to get on-site super easy.

"We do have parking onsite which we will be releasing in due course and we are also running a number of shuttle buses from various locations across Coventry - along with taxi access points and drop off and pick up points for the drinkers."

With the solutions in place, the venue was chosen as a result of Ben's vision. He said: "My background has been extensive in events. I'm actually a Coventry-born lad but have been running major events in London and the UK for the last 12 years.

"I moved back around two years ago as I had a little boy, and saw the potential here.

"London and other parts of the UK can be over-saturated in terms of festivals, but Coventry seems to have had a new lease of life with the City of Culture win and businesses such as Botanist and Pierre’s Bistro performing really well. It just seemed like a good time to create a  major music event for the city.

"Coombe seemed an obvious choice and we had actually started conversations around three years ago before I even moved back. Coombe's an amazing site with a lot of potential so we're excited to be producing this at such a revered event space.

"Our business plan was never a pop-up festival. We do have a five-year plan in play, but this also doesn't just stop at this particular festival. We're also working on other shows regionally which we will be releasing in due course."
