BMAD is, probably, the biggest biker, music and beer festival in the South West of England. Now in its 12th year and better than ever before. With plenty of bikes, bands and beers to keep everyone happy; and with food, traders and the wonderful beach – it’s likely to be the perfect weekend.

All the money raised at both the Wednesday Bike Nights and the Festival goes to our chosen charities.

BANDS

We have put together an incredible line up of some of the top bands in the UK & Europe, including The ZZ Tops, Hells Bells, the Kris Barras Band, The Darkside of Pink Floyd, Stop Stop, Departed, and plenty more . . There are two stages this year as well.

 
 

Beer & Cider

We are extending our range of refreshments this year to include a choice of 50 different ales and 20 ciders. This should satisfy all our thirsty visitors. Soft drinks will be available for all those who have to ride or drive. If you need somewhere to stay, see our Accommodation page.

 
 

Bike Nights

Paignton Bike Night takes place on Wednesday nights between June and the end of September on the sea front at Paignton. Gates open at 6pm.

Bike Night is intended to be a place to get together with like minded people and at the same time raise money for charity. Having said that, the event has become very popular with both locals and tourists who are just amazed to see so many bikes in one location and is now becoming an unofficial tourist attraction during the summer months.

 

 
 

Bike Show

The Best Bike at the Festival will win the Show prize of £1,000 – There are further cash prizes for other category winners.

The Bike Show will be open to the public from 11am to 1pm on the Sunday.
