We’ll be back in 2020, from 21-23 August at the Norfolk Showground

We founded VW Whitenoise Festival back in Norfolk in 2002. We want to return to organising an event back in beautiful Norwich, where we live. We want to return the festival to a site that’s kind to lowered vehicles and their owners, with plenty of undercover options if it rains. The Showground makes it really easy for people to join Whitenoise for the day too and we’ve been there before, in 2012 and 2013.

Whitenoise will be at the Norfolk Showground for the foreseeable future, always the third weekend in August, the only summer date available.

The change of venue means we need 2019 to prepare for a spectacular summer return in 2020.

Thank-you all for your patience and we’re really sorry for any disappointment caused to your plans for 2019. Any competition winner tickets will be honoured in 2020.

We have let you know as quickly as we could and we will keep you posted on progress. We are already plotting and planning!

We cannot wait to welcome you once again in 2020 to our 17th event!

The Whitenoise Story so far…

What started as 200 people coming together to celebrate their love of Volkswagen motors, camping and music in 2002 has grown into an annual gathering of up to 10,ooo festivalgoers, friends and families bringing their eclectic vehicles, caravans and bicycles and quite often the dog too.

Performers and DJs have included The Neville Staple Band, Dreadzone, Shades of Rhythm, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Beach Boys UK, DJ Chrome, The Allergies and Norman Jay MBE.

The music line-up, sound and staging, sets our car show apart. The live stage, acoustic stage and popular dance tent will all be back in 2020.

Thanks to all of you who were #partofit in 2018 at Euston Park. Here’s some memories made…

Whitenoise Winners 2018

Frank Spencer presented the Show n Shine winners with stunning trophies, a splash of cash and a cheeky wink! He also congratulated our Deluxe Resto Shop sponsored ‘Otherness’ and Retro Custom Bike competition victors.

Many thanks to all who drove and pedalled up, especially on the Sunday which was forecast to rain and rain and rain (it didn't).

Our marvellous 2018 sponsors and supporters were:
