Santa Pod Raceway Presents Bug Jam 25. A quarter century of Air-cooled excellence
Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th July
After a quarter of a century of being Europe’s biggest, best and most popular VW show, Bug Jam 25 is back once again with a line-up of both on and off-track action that reflects the history and heritage of this iconic event. Once more, it’s time for the incredible VW-inspired, weekend long party, where over 33,000 show-goers can expect to have fun in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
Now celebrating its quarter centenary , this remarkable show, now the biggest VW Beetle festival in Europe, looks set to pack even more entertainment, fun, action and racing into 3 hectic days than ever before. Often dubbed ‘Glastonbury On Wheels’, Bug Jam offers an eclectic mix of all things VW, wrapped in an intoxicating mix of music, comedy, nightlife and lifestyle. A true festival in every sense of the word, with a vibrant and fun atmosphere, bringing to life the very essence of VW culture. As ever, this year, all of the action is also being captured for a lifestyle documentary programme on Eurosport and Motors TV.
Naturally, Europe’s greatest, shiniest and fastest VWs will be taking centre stage – and, after it proved so popular last year they’ve laid on an improved, full off-road course! But even if that’s not your thing, there’s an incredibly diverse list of attractions to choose from, making Bug Jam a superb event for all sorts of enthusiasts.
As well as non-stop drag racing from the pros, there are numerous chances for you to have a go yourself in the many ‘Run What You Brung’ sessions held over the weekend. Running on the strip throughout the show will be Fireforce, Santa Pod’s own 280mph Jet Car, the insane Jet Beetle and of course, the 7-second quarter mile turning 2 seat dragster, for the very brave to ride in. Polishing buffs will also love the Autoglym ‘Show and Shine’ area, where Europe’s most beautifully finished creations compete for top honours.
Bring a full wallet, because not only will you find one of the biggest collections of VW traders in one place, but also the Autojumble is often known to throw up some real rarities. If you have been looking for that obscure part for months - you might just find it here.
Adrenaline junkies have plenty to keep them entertained. Not only will UKFMX be providing 3 days of gravity-defying action, but they’ll also be ably assisted by Podzilla, Santa Pod’s very own car-crushing Monster Truck, this year battling it out with the similarly able ‘Swamp Thing’. Headlining as ever, will be multiple Guinness World record holder Terry Grant, who will be displaying his own unique brand of car control – and possibly smashing yet another World record or two in the process..
Music fans will hit ‘overload’ thanks to a packed itinerary of live bands across four music arenas, including chart-toppers The Candle Thieves, D:ream and The Farm headlining on the Friday night, and Indie favourites, The Wonder Stuff doing an extensive set on the Saturday. Mix in live DJs and comedy tents to provide something for everyone - and you’ll begin to understand why the event has such a broad appeal. Comedy is always a big draw at Bug Jam and this year, with ‘Mock The Week’ and Radio 4 regular Milton Jones heading up the talent, expect significant hilarity throughout the entire weekend. Frustrated singers and performers are also welcome on the ‘Bug Jam’s Got Talent’ stage, where we can’t promise Simon Cowell, but you might just win a few fans for your trouble.
But that’s STILL not all! There’s free camping on-site all weekend and better still, the under 13s get in for absolutely nothing! There’s a huge funfair and festival traders on site for all to enjoy and to tug at the old heartstrings, The Battle Of Britain memorial flight with a WWII Dakota will be putting in an appearance on the Saturday.
With a capacity crowd expected, show goers are advised to book their tickets early, you DO NOT want to miss this one!
