This year marks the 75th anniversary of racing at the home of the British Grand Prix- Silverstone. It’s a special year for a highly coveted track that is steeped in motorsport history and there has been a shake-up for Silverstone’s Summer party.

Silverstone Festival takes place during the August Bank Holiday weekend from 25th-27th of August 2023.


Silverstone Classic was founded in 1990 to celebrate the glorious sights and sounds of classic racing. It’s a wheel-to-wheel affair. The event also celebrates milestones within the automotive world; from exotic brand anniversaries such as Lamborghini and Ferrari or everyday car anniversaries, like the Vauxhall Cavalier.

This year, the Silverstone Classic shed its skin and is now reborn as Silverstone Festival. That means a crescendo for the summer at Silverstone.


The celebrations will include...

  • 120 Years of Ford
  • 120 Years of Vauxhall
  • 60 Years of Lamborghini
  • 75 Year of Lotus
  • 75 Years of Porsche
  • 110 Years of Aston Martin
  • 100 Years of MG

As well as...

  • 70th Anniversary of the Chevrolet Corvette
  • 60th Anniversary of the Mercedes-Benz W113 Pagoda
  • 75th Anniversary of Jaguar XK120
  • 50th Anniversary of the Caterham 7

And celebrating 35 Years since the Gay Classic Car Group.


You may be thinking, ‘Is a festival ever really a festival without live music?!’

...And Silverstone must have come to the same conclusion with headline acts on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Friday: The Christians and ABC

Saturday: New Rules and Sugababes

Sunday: The Clause and McFly

There will be something for all the family. From classic racing between classic BTCC cars and Le Mans legends, stunt shows from Terry Grant and even cooking demonstrations in front of your own watering mouths.
