THE first family-friendly festival is set to return to Maldon Promenade Park next year.

The team behind Raver Tots have confirmed its 2022 date for the popular event - and tickets go on sale tomorrow.

The music festival exclusively for families with young children was a hit when it came to Promenade Park in July - with thousands of people attending.

This year's event saw sets from some of the biggest names in dance music including Artful Dodger, Judge Jules, Brandon Block, Heartless Crew, The Wideboys, Jaguar Skills, DJ Phantasy, and DJ Vibes.

Speaking before the July event, MC Alastair from Artful Dodger said: "Raver Tots is the most innovative festival out there. It teaches kids about the importance of dance music and brings families together. Us being fathers of young kids, we love playing there and taking them along with us."

The event is set to return to Maldon on Sunday, June 19 2022.

All Raver Tots festivals in the past year sold out in advance so bosses say early booking is essential - no tickets are available on the gate.

The full line up for the 2022 event is yet to be announced but the Raver Tots team promise there will be the UK's biggest DJs, a fun fair with rides and inflatables and Raver Tots dancers and performers.

Early bird tickets start at £4 for babies, £15 for children, and £18 for adults.

These tickets go on sale tomorrow (November 26) at 9am and are available to buy here.

Music at the event is kept at safe noise levels for children as every event is fully risk assessed by a qualified Health and Safety planning professional.
