Offering more than just great music, Ambleside Retro Music Festival has expanded its onsite experience to include the Neon Lounge: an ’80s-inspired VIP lounge and cocktail bar with private chalets, a gourmet menu and a prime viewing platform; as well as Stage B: rocking a DJ-driven, ’90s-mixtape vibe, coupled with live dance performances, top ’90s MCs and giant screens that flank this second stage, high-energy platform.

“We’re thrilled to be returning to Ambleside Park for our fourth annual music festival,” says GSL Group President & CEO, Graham Lee. “Because of the continued and overwhelming support of our guests year-over-year, we decided 2020 was the perfect time to grow our event’s onsite amenities, talent line-up and the festival experience overall.”
