Hawkfest is three-day outdoor weekend festival organised and centered around Hawkwind. The event is open only to members of their fanclub and is limited to around 1000 attendees.

The stated intention is to recreate the atmosphere of festivals of old, as an alternative to the currently heavily commercialised events, and to make the whole event as family-friendly as possible with side attractions and workshops.
