Road to Ruin Festival Announcement


Pandemic Postpones Post-Apocalyptic Festival

Due to the current unpredictable climate resulting from the COVID-19 Pandemic, the organisers of Apocalypticus - Road to Ruin Festival have made the decision to postpone the festival until 7, 8 ,9 + 10 July 2022.

This decision has not come lightly, with a second year of no show for the Biggest Little Post-Apocalyptic Festival in the UK.

All current tickets will be rolled over to the 2022 event. We will honour any ticket refund requests but would ask for our dedicated followers to be patient, hold onto their booking - when it comes, it will be the Gig to die for!

We have added an extra FREE day - Thursday 7 July as a thankyou to all our dedicated followers.

Apocalypticus - Road to Ruin Festival is a Post-Apocalyptic fully immersive event, celebrating all things Armageddon. 

The Festival has been steadily growing in attendance from its first incarnation in September 2017. Based in Buckinghamshire, it attracts visitors from all regions of the UK and Europe.

Highlights of the event include 3 days of bands and DJs with an eclectic mix of Rock, Dance, Electro, Acapella and more - performing on a high octane fire-emblazoned stage.


All festival goers attending the family event are encouraged to wear wasteland inspired attire, and a Dystopic Vehicle show and road run takes place on the Saturday.

The Road to Ruin site is built in the run-up to the festival and features ramshackle buildings and tunnels with themed trade stalls all treated to give the appearance of a Post-Apocalyptic Survivors encampment. Structures are dismantled after the event, totally by volunteers.
