Devitt MCN Festival 2020: Bikejumble is back!

First published 06 March 2020 by Gareth Evans

The 2020 Devitt MCN Festival is fast approaching! Gates open on May 16 and we'd love to see you there.

Here's a sneak preview of everything we've planned so far - we'll bring you more news as it becomes available...

Bikejumble is back!

The UK’s biggest and best outdoor bike Festival adds a bikejumble to its rapidly growing list of reasons you have to go this year.

Who doesn’t love a bikejumble? They’re not only a treasure hunt for that elusive part you need to finish your restoration, they’re also a great way to test your bike knowledge as you try to identify which model Honda that petrol tank is from or what bike that set of Mikuni carbs fits. It’s easy to get sucked in losing countless hours rooting through endless cardboard boxes. Absolute bliss.

After a few years away a bikejumble will be back at this year's Devitt MCN Festival of Motorcycling so you’ll again be able to rummage to your heart's content. If you haven’t already thought about coming for the weekend the campsite is located within the showground so campers get the early morning pick of the jumble.

If you’re a jumbler or are having a garage clearout and are interested in having a jumble pitch then send an email to to reserve a space.

Festival highlights...

Ride the new 2020 bikes

The Devitt MCN Festival of Motorcycling is all about riding. It’s the only event in the UK where you can ride the very latest 2020 bikes from all the major manufacturers in the same place. It’s no exaggeration to say that there are hundreds of test ride slots all up for grabs. From cruisers to sportsbikes to learner friendly machines they’re all just waiting for you to jump on board! No pre booking is necessary, just bring your lid and licence and sign up on the day. 

Watch some dirt track racing

The Dirt Track Riders Association will be holding another packed, two day round of proper racing at the Festival. Races include everything from rookie, pro, junior (7-11 year olds) and the dramatic, heavyweight Hooligan class.

Extreme Bike battle stunt show

Combining BMX, Trials and a high flying FMX show, Extreme Bike Battle is one of the most thrilling stunt shows in the UK. From inch perfect trials and BMX tricks to the incredible aerial displays of the FMX riders, the Extreme Bike Battle is a demonstration of supreme bike control. Don’t miss their debut at the Devitt MCN Festival of Motorcycling.

Massive tribute bands confirmed

Three of the UK’s top tribute bands have been confirmed for this year's Festival. The Kopycat Killers, Forever Queen and Wrong Jovi will be performing on Saturday night. Entry to the evening venue is FREE for campers. Tickets for the Evening Bash sponsored by Indian are on sale now at just £15 (from 7pm till late). Head to for more information.

Stock up the kit cupboard

If it’s bargains you’re after then the Festival is the place to be. We’ve got acres of retail stands selling everything from discounted clothing to top notch gear from premier brands.

Celebrate Elsie’s birthday

Yamaha’s beloved RD LC (affectionately nicknamed Elsie) is forty years old this year and to celebrate we’re creating a special two-stroke paddock with displays, fire ups and talks. Plus, if you turn up on a two-stroke over 125cc you’ll be able to park in the VIP bike park, Elsie’s Shed.
