Laughton, East Sussex £3.85m

Lewis Live (www.leweslive.com) is a two-day music festival on 10-11 July, featuring real ale and camping. It used to be known as Rock in the Bog, which gives you some idea. If that?s not really your thing, consider hosting your own alternative event just a couple of miles to the east. This impressive manor house has 12 acres of grounds, which are nice and flat for camping, plus a helicopter pad for the headline bands to fly in and out. Call Winkworth?s Lewes office on 01273 471471 www.winkworth.co.uk/lewes

Aislaby, nr Whitby, North Yorkshire £1.45m

The Deer Shed festival (http://deershedfestival.com) takes place (24-26 July) near Thirsk. It?s a family-friendly event set in a 90-acre park. While we haven?t got quite that much space for you, how about a 53-acre estate a bit further to the north-east, up on the North Yorkshire Moors? It has a restored, five-bedroom Georgian farmhouse, two cottages, outbuildings and fishing rights. There is no public access, so you can keep your festival private. Call Winkworth?s Cobham office on 01932 500 200 www.winkworth.co.uk/cobham

Thorverton, nr Exeter £1.35m

Beautiful Days (www.beautifuldays.org) is an August weekend camping festival run by the Levellers and this year?s line-up has the Happy Mondays and Wilko Johnson. It takes place just north of Exeter in Devon (21-23 August) and a few miles away on the opposite side of the M5 is this farm for sale. With 60 acres at your disposal, there?s plenty of room to start your own similar event. Such is the demand that Beautiful Days sells out without even advertising. Call Winkworth?s Exeter office on 01392 271177 www.winkworth.co.uk/exeter

Sutton Scotney, Winchester £1.3m

Blissfields (www.blissfields.co.uk) is now in its 15th year and was named best small festival in 2007. It has attracted big names such as Mumford & Sons, Super Furry Animals and Jake Bugg in past years. This year it takes place between 3-4 July. But it started small, and so could you with this property, just a few miles away. It has five acres of grounds including several fishing lakes. An agricultural tie means you will have to make a living from the fishing, rather than the festivals. Call Winkworth?s Winchester office on 01962 866777 www.winkworth.co.uk/winchester

Fulbeck, Lincs £2.25m

The Newark Festival from 19-21 June (http://lizhobbsgroup.com/whats-on/event/2015-06-19-newark-festival) attracts impressive acts, with Boyzone headlining this year. Halfway between Newark and Sleaford is a beautiful stone-built country house. It has 12 acres of land and fabulous views. There?s plenty of parking and an annexe that could be turned into a studio. Perfect for budding rock stars to make music and hold their own festivals. Call Winkworth?s Grantham office on 01476 578888 www.winkworth.co.uk/grantham

Rushmoor Hill, Knockholt, Kent £2.475m

With 1.8 acres, this property might not be the ideal festival venue, although it offers enough space for a string quartet and a select group of friends. However, just around the corner on the village playing fields, the Knockstock Festival could entertain you for a weekend in July. Meanwhile, you?ll have a home in prime London commuter country, with a fabulous garden, a swimming pool to cool off in and planning permission for a cinema room and gym. Call Winkworth?s Chislehurst office on 020 8285 5099 www.winkworth.co.uk/chislehurst

Shenley, nr Radlett, Herts £1.8m

Hatfield House (www.hatfield-house.co.uk) hosts a number of live music events throughout the year, including Folk by the Oak and Eastern Electrics. If you buy this classic Georgian four-bedroom house, you could run your own off-beat music festival and cater to your personal tastes. The house, hidden away behind an ancient high wall, has four acres and a 2,000sq ft stable block ripe for conversion. Call Winkworth?s St Albans office on 01727 844330 www.winkworth.co.uk/st-albans

Five Ashes, nr Mayfield, East Sussex £950,000

In the dim and distant past, Heathfield was the focus of a music festival that almost didn?t happen. The Magick Musick Festival in 1985 was banned by the police when they got wind of it. As there was a hippy convoy of 40-odd vehicles heading that way, they decided to relent as long as the venue was changed. Roger Daltry lived locally and offered his field. This modern mansion nearby has its own magic views over the countryside and four acres of land for you to make the most of. Call Winkworth?s Lewes office on 01273 471471 www.winkworth.co.uk/lewes

Lewes Road, nr Blackboys, East Sussex £1.25m

Elderflower Fields (www.elderflowerfields.co.uk) is a newcomer in the festival field, starting in 2012. It takes place in the Ashdown Forest in East Sussex where it offers all sorts of outdoor activities for youngsters as well as a variety of music. If it?s not to your taste, the 16 acres surrounding nearby Branden Farm could offer you the chance to hold your own music fantasy. A further 10 acres is available by negotiation. Call Winkworth?s Lewes office on 01273 471471 www.winkworth.co.uk/lewes

Harmer Green, Welwyn, Herts £2.15m

Not far from Knebworth, the ancestral home of live rock concerts, this detached four bedroom house?s potential is slightly scaled down. There might not be big enough for the Rolling Stones or The Prodigy, but there is a flat paddock of seven acres which could house a number of tents and a few dozen friends with guitars. Call Winkworth?s St Albans office on 01727 844330 www.winkworth.co.uk/st-albans
