Kubix Festival is an effort by a group of local promoters to delivery 1st class quality entertainment by sensational recording artists, at a price that won’t hurt your pocket! We’re fans ourselves and want to see live music remain as accessible as possible to all fans, which is why we keep our prices so reasonable for such brilliant line-ups!
Parking is FREE and available within Herrington Country Park. On your arrivals, our Stewards will direct you to the appropriate parking area (VIP Guests will have access to a separate parking area even closer to the event).
A shuttle bus will run to and from nearby cities delivering you to the door of the event. A small charge will be made to cover the costs of this service, but again, we’ve kept it to an absolute minimum!
