Rabidfest is Oxfordshire’s only rock and metal festival; setting the stage for the most exciting, energetic and electrifying bands to put on the best shows right in the heart of Oxford.  Over the past three years, Rabidfest has witnessed unmissable sets from international icons in metal such as Diamond Head, Blaze Bayley, Discharge, Conan, Bound in Fear, Divine Chaos, Ingested and many more, supported by the very best up-and-coming heavy metal and hard rock talent. 

Whether you’re a casual live-music fan, or a metal and rock fanatic, there will always be a place for you. Rabidfest is a friendly, welcoming event where we all share the same passion for absolutely unforgettable music experiences. Rabidfest prides itself on showcasing what the past, present and future metal and rock scenes have to offer, from across the UK and beyond – and the next chapter in metal history takes place at Rabidfest 2024.

Rabidfest is also a not-for-profit organisation that supports a chosen charity each year, for in 2024, we will be supporting the Sophie Lancaster Foundation. Throughout the event we will be raising awareness of our cause, as well as much-needed funds. We will also be donating 100% of the proceeds from this years event to The Sophie Lancaster Foundation!

We don’t just host must-attend metal festivals. We’re bringing heavy metal and hard rock home.
