The indie and metal music festivals at Catton Park
Catton Park in Norwich is renowned among Britain's park enthusiasts as the first public park commissioned to Humphrey Repton, one of the country's most renowned landscape gardeners. It's best known to music fans as the venue of a good few live festivals, including the Bearded Theory Festival, which has annually showcased the best of indie music both current and old, and the Bloodstock Open Air Festival, one of the largest heavy metal festivals in the UK. You can get access to both of these and more when you buy or sell Catton Park tickets on StubHub.
Everything you'll need at an outdoor music festival
You'll find Catton Park in the small village of Old Catton, which is pretty much in the centre of Norwich. Massive ancient oaks surround the open parkland areas, creating the perfect natural amphitheatres for the music festivals that have found a home in the park. The easiest way to get there is to take the A1042 Chartwell Road, and head through the housing estates until you reach the park on the junction of Oak Lane and Spixworth Road. If you're heading there for the Bloodstock Festival then you'll find plenty of camping areas and can look forward to watching some of the world's finest metal bands in verdant surroundings. There are refreshments aplenty of offer, with nearby Catton Hall providing a number of outbuildings that are turned to use to service festival-goers. And we really are talking about the cream of the crop across all metal genres, from full-on black metal, to the more melodic symphonic and goth metal. Bands like Skindred and Paradise Lost have headlined in the past, which gives you a good idea of the selection on offer with Catton Park tickets.
The biggest names in indie and alternative music
The other big music festival to keep your eyes on at Catton Park is the wonderfully named Bearded Theory Festival, which is a celebration of all things indie and alternative. The world's most revered bands in these genres descend on the park every year for the event, and festival fans have experienced performances from the latest indie bands of the day to some of the true giants of yesteryear. Legendary outfits have made appearances here, including the crew that released the world's very first rap crossover hit, "Rapper's Delight" - The Sugarhill Gang. On diametrically the opposite side of the musical spectrum have been performances from Liverpool '80s alternative icons, Echo and the Bunnymen. There truly is always something for everyone, no matter your age or era, if indie music is your thing. Don't hesitate to get Catton Park tickets whenever you see them on sale on StubHub.
