Daytime Activities

For this year’s Youth Beatz Festival, we’re excited to be bringing festival-goers with a wide range of fun and experiential daytime activities to Park Farm Showfield on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June. Keep reading for some more information on what you can expect to see this year!

Circus Sensible will be coming along with their Big Top circus tent to deliver comedy shows, circus workshops, interactive performances and more. They will be there from 12-6pm on both event days.

Once again, the Mobile Zipline will allow you to fly over the site for the distance equivalent to a football field, and of speeds of up to 21mph! There is the option to go it solo, or to race your friend. There will also be an Inflatable Area featuring podium joust, bouncy castle, bungee run, human table football, giant twister and much more.

Gecko Venture will be coming along with their Spider Mountain where participants must climb up through the “webbing” to slide back down, 4-face Rock Climbing Wall and a huge 100-foot inflatable Assault Course filled with obstacles to try and beat your friends.

Back for 2024 is Target Wrestling, who will be showcasing their skills in the Wrestling Tent with showtimes every hour from 12:30pm right through until 5:30pm on both event days. The 3Sixty Bicycle Display Team will be doing four 25-minute stunt displays and interactive cycle coaching sessions each event day in the stunt arena, and Glasgow Science Centre will be in the Youth Work Tent with their Body Vision and Fit Lab exhibitions where you can test your skills, stamina and compete against your friends in challenges.

Local partners will also be in attendance to run various informative sessions, with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service delivering a series of workshops on Water Safety, Fire Safety, and CPR, so be sure to pop along and see them.

As well as activity-based options at Youth Beatz 2024, we also have the Youth Work Tent, where you will find Young Leaders and Youth Workers from Dumfries and Galloway Council’s Youth Work Service running loads of fun and free activities, as well as information on the Services that are available to young people where they live. Activities within the Tent include: 360 Photobooth, Festival Hair and Glitter, Silent Discos and Competitions as well as Chill Out Areas and a Tuck Shop.

Within the Youth Work Tent, we also have the Youth Information Marketplace which will feature 16 organisations from across Dumfries and Galloway who will be promoting their services for young people. If the hustle and bustle is too much, we also have an onsite Quiet Area with sensory space.

All daytime activities are free and will be open to all on Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th June from 12-6pm.
