Each year we aim to have the most diverse acts on stage to ensure that everyone has something to look forward to. This year we are very excited to reveal that our headline act will be The Official and No.1 tribute to the legendary Kings of Leon who have been touring worldwide since 2008.

Another amazing Festival, great line up!!! Top weekend with old friends and made some new ones. Met a Family who travelled up from Reading and are coming again next year!! Well done all involved




Welcome to The Admiral Nelson Music Festival website for our 6th annual event. The Admiral Nelson is a privately owned and family run canal side pub on the boarders of Northamptonshire and Warwickshire, situated on the grand union canal in the quaint village of Braunston. In 2012 we held our first festival which was attended by approx. 500 people and saw local bands performing on the back of a lorry trailer in our pub car park. Since then our event continues to grow and in 2016 our festival was attended by over 4000 people! We try to cater for all different tastes of music ranging from a resident Ibiza DJ to solo artists, local bands and tribute bands. UK No. 1 winner of the National Tribute Awards 2013 – Hats off to Led Zeppelin have now performed at 2 of our festivals. Other sets from UK Foo Fighters, Fleetwood Bac and Guns 2 Roses have all received a great response from the crowd. Local bands Got It Covered, Palace Pictures and Fraudio have also put on great sets over the years. We try to make the event a day out for the whole family so you can expect much more than just live music... Face painting, bouncy castles, Morris Dancers, professional photography, human statues, food stalls & outside bars to name a few! Each year we have an amazing firework display to finish the day and not forgetting the chance to camp and really get into the festival spirit!


Please note ticket sales will open on Sunday 28th May



To ensure you have a safe and enjoyable weekend we have a great team of staff  & professional security staff onsite to assist you before, during & after the event.
