Play Fest is an annual independent music festival that takes place at New Eccles Hall, Quidenham, Norfolk, England. It was first held in May 2011.

Play Fest consists of a comprehensive bill of musicians, bands and artists across various stages. The genres of music on offer are largely Rock, Indie and Dance. It has an annual attendance of around 4,000, which the organisers have expressed an interest on increasing as the festival grows larger with time.
