What we're about

Do you enjoy festivals and outdoor music but don’t really want to get down with the kids? OMG! is a group for those with 30ish or more candles on their cake who like to enjoy outdoor music with like-minded friends. Centred around the Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire triangle, OMG! will enjoy the plethora of small music festivals that this area hosts each year.

Launched in February 2015 we have had LOADS of festival, gigs and pub socials. Tania and Chrissie join me on the OMG! management team and we always make sure that ‘newbies’ are welcomed and made to feel part of the Group. It’s all about having musical fun with like-minded friends.

Meetup charges $120 per year for the site + web & hostings cost so we ask you to donate at least £1.50 per year to contribute towards costs. For that, you will get our TV channel preview and post views of our events and of course access to our events. (Becuase of the numbers restriction we do ask you make your donation within 3 months of joining, that way if OMG! is not for you we can offer the slot to the next person). You can check out the 'pilot' edition on the 'TV Channel' below. So all you Festies out there.... come and join us in 2018... it will be sooooo.... OMG! -Greg
