After the major success of last year’s event, the Foxlake Outdoor Festival, held in Dunbar, returns bigger and better this year. Not only with another exciting lineup of music and comedy performances for all the family but with the completely new adrenaline arena, making the most of the Foxlake Adventures facilities!
This year, on May 20th & 21st, you'll be able to come along to try out some of the most exciting activities that East Lothian has to offer, with organisers ready to welcome an array of adrenaline fans, both young and old. This year's festival will include, A Free Fall Stunt Bag with a total drop height 8m, 7m high climbing wall, amazing displays of free running with Access Parkour and The Clan Scotland Cycle Stunt Team performing stunt shows throughout the weekend.
This is your perfect opportunity to get involved and join in the fun across the weekend. If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to jump out of a plane or fall from a building, the Free Fall Stunt Bag is the activity for you. Thrill-seekers can climb the tower and jump from the platform and feel the gravity defying free-fall through the air. The Free Fall Stunt Bag is super safe experience and is suitable for everyone to give it a try, so long as you can brave the height and take the leap!
Displays at the adrenaline arena will be at 12 noon, 2pm and 4pm with 15 minutes of Parkour, from renowned Edinburgh based team Access Parkour followed by a 30 minute non-competitive workshop with crowd participation. At 1.00pm, 3pm & 5pm there will be a 45 minute BMX Stunt show from Clan Stunts with amazing tricks and stunts which will have you on the edge of your seat. If you or your kids want to see some truly exciting feats, then make sure you book your tickets now!

Tickets for the event are available here and prices range from £17 for an adult day entry, to £30 for a full weekend ticket. Following the massive success of the event in 2016, with advance tickets selling out. Foxlake Adventures have partnered with East Lothian Council, deciding to extend the festival to a full weekend across the 20th and 21st May 2017, offering families and individuals the opportunity to get outdoors and begin their own adventure in East Lothian.
Alongside wakeboarding, music and comedy, to keep the children entertained we will be bringing back our popular Kids’ Zone with the inflatable village filled with every bouncy castle imaginable, they can also take on the challenge of the climbing wall and even get their faces painted. The Foxlake Outdoor Festival weekend is all about getting the family active outdoors, so you will have the chance to try out some of East Lothian’s outdoor adventures for yourself. Try out the Foxfall Course, the UK’s only rope course constructed over water, or get on your wet suit and give wakeboarding a try, or if you prefer to stay dry, hop on and master a segway!
