Silverstone Festival: the world’s largest historic motorsport weekend

Brand new look for fun-fuelled Bank Holiday festival.

Spurred on by its ever-increasing popularity, ‘Silverstone Festival’ marks a new era for the venue’s much-loved event with a new name and fresh look for 2023, celebrating all that happens both on and off the track.

Silverstone Festival (25-27 August) continues to boast an unrivalled line-up of incredible track action as well as record-breaking displays of classic cars. All the crowd-pleasing grids will be returning in 2023 along with some landmark automotive anniversaries, an incredible line-up of off-track entertainment, main stage music and family fun.

The Home of British Motorsport has played host to the event – formerly known as ‘The Classic’ – since 1990 and the new name celebrates the wider experience now enjoyed by festival-goers.

Last year saw the popular addition of Foodie Fest, extreme stunt shows, three nights of live music and current F1 car displays including a world-exclusive tribute to Lewis Hamilton, and now Silverstone is injecting even more vibrancy into the non-stop, fun-fuelled weekend.

Silverstone Festival is an epic award-winning event that regularly attracts close to 1,000 race entries and draws crowds of more than 100,000. The festival is staged at the famous Silverstone Circuit in Northamptonshire: birthplace of the FIA Formula One World Championship and home to the Formula 1 British Grand Prix. Over a three-day bank holiday weekend in August, it not only features the very best of historic motor racing but a non-stop timetable off-track too, with live music and a packed programme of family entertainment. This includes a Foodie Fest, funfair, shopping village, interactive experiences, a classic car auction plus huge showcases of classic cars from over one hundred car clubs, often celebrating important milestones in automotive history.
