Things not to miss at the festival:

Thursday night:

Get there on the first night; make the most of your ticket and don’t miss out on what always is a really special evening. There will be great live collaborations, some new acts and a surprise performance after The Black Cat Bones close the Main Stage.

Signature drinks:

The festival has had the Titanic cocktail since the early days of Up The Creek and as the years have gone by, they’ve adjusted the bar menu plenty of times, always testing new ideas. This year they have the Titanic (aka the infamous ‘big blue’ drink) back again, the Life Raft (Sedgwick`s Old Brown with Ginger Ale) and new to the festival is the Rubber Duck: a mix of vodka, Sedgwick`s and Orange Juice – easy and refreshing to drink on the scorching hot days!

The River on Saturday:

No one has ever attended the festival and missed out on the river but there is something happening in the river that I’d like to draw your attention to: The Anything That Floats Competition…a longstanding competition at Up The Creek encouraging attendees to build wild and wonderful floating contraptions, from beds to couches and bars, all in the name of some much coveted prizes.

The artists: Well yeah.
