This fab festival with the name that means doing something with love, passion and soul in Greek (sweet eh?), is now in its third year.  Bringing a top-class billing of music, comedy and activities to St Albans in Hertfordshire and this year’s line-up is just cracking. We’ve got two VIP adult weekend tickets to give away (with camping passes thrown in, too!), to one very lucky Muddy subscriber, worth over £400! It could be you…

To whet your appetite country duo The Shires will be headlining on Sunday, while London’s infamous disco nightclub, CARWASH will be rocking the dance tent with a five-hour show. If you <heart> the 80s, you’re in luck, as Friday’s line-up features Paul Young, Katrina (of Katrina and the Waves fame), Drifters Revue, Garry Christian and Carol Decker.

Saturday will have a more contemporary pop vibe with Daft Punk tribute band, Daft As Punk (see what they did there?) and DJs including Dave Pearce hitting the decks. Finally Judge Jules will close the show on Sunday with a 90 minute club classics set joined by a live 10-piece band. Sounds epic!

Sean Lock, Hal Cruttenden & Lou Conran will be providing the (adults only, ahem!) laughs on Saturday, while there’ll be family friendly comedy on the Sunday from Jarred Christmas (& Hobbit), and Howard Reed.

Plus there’s a jam packed schedule of activities for kids (and big kids) including theatre, circus training, crafts, discos, storytelling and children’s performers. In the Activity Field you’ll find climbing walls, daily paint parties (which look a total blast!), a movie house, laser tag, archery and more.

Happy campers can also take up the free face painting and hair braiding in the Family Camping Field. And did we mention that you won’t have to pay a penny to get involved? Yep, Meraki is the UK’s only family festival where all the activities are completely free… leaving you with more to spend at the bar!

Finally, the lucky winners of our VIP tickets will get special access to the Prosecco bus, cocktail bar, as well as an indoor sofa and chill-out zone, private gig space and main stage area (so you can really get in on the action), and VIP toilets (because, let’s face it, who wants to queue?). To top it all there’ll be private glitter artists (sparkle me up!), VIP yoga and massages available too.

You’d be bonkers not to enter!

Sorry! Too late on this one - Try these
