About Eklectica

Described as a festival with a twist, Eklectica is an exciting combination of acts that promise to be diverse, quirky and creative – headlined by popular bands and internationally renowned, show stopping tribute bands – all set within the unique woodland setting of Robin Hill.  Expect the unexpected!

The Amphitheatre boasts the idea of turning quirky into an art form by showcasing all kinds of entertainment.  From circus to poetry, comedy to fine art, theatre to burlesque, we have a line-up that will flabbergast your artistic senses! 

Set in the stunning heart of the Woodlands you’ll find the epicentre of electronic and dance music, featuring a programme of fresh, up-tempo sounds. 

And for those seeking a refuge from the madness elsewhere, Africa is the setting for an oasis of fun and frivolity!  Feast on a programme so diverse it merges homegrown Island talent, Mexicana and old school disco vibes!
