A clashfinder is a free, printable timetable for a music festival or other event. This site is where you get them.
If you want a clashfinder for an event you're going to, look in the table to the right of this page. If it's not listed there, try searching the full list of clashfinders.
If you want to create a clashfinder for an event, use the new clashfinder form.

To complement the clashfinder data exports, I've made the lists of available clashfinders accessible in JSON format. Use http://clashfinder.com/data/events/events.json for the full list of clashfinders and http://clashfinder.com/data/events/recommended.json for the list of recommended clashfinders.

I've finally got around to adding user accounts to the site. If you create an account your highlights will be saved to the account, so you can edit them on any computer or phone by logging in.
Setting up an account will mean you get your user name in the share address of your saved clashfinders, like this: clashfinder.com/s/g2010/?user=yourName.
The Linking function has been removed because the user accounts allow the same functionality.
If you don't want to create an account, you can still use the site as before. You'll need to have an account to create a clashfinder because the editing privileges will be tied to your account. If you've previously created a clashfinder, you can transfer the editing privileges to your account by visiting the old edit address and following the link in the Transfer Privileges box at the top.
To create an account, visit the new user account page.

As suggested by John Morrison, you can now select different visual styles for clashfinders. To change style, click the down arrow in the Controls hover box and use the Style dropdown menu. The styles are limited to colours and fonts, rather than actual layout changes. The list is a bit sparse at the moment but I'll add more when (if) I get around to it.
If you know css and fancy a go at designing your own scheme, grab a copy of standard.css and start editing. To test it, change the Style dropdown menu to 'Other' and you can enter the location of your modified file.
If you're happy with what you've made, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll include the good ones in the available styles. Don't forget to send me any images linked in the stylesheet. You'll get a credit at the bottom of the page when someone uses your stylesheet.
Change of address
19th April 2011
A very kind donor has given us the domain name clashfinder.com. If you follow any old clashfindergeneral.co.uk links, you'll be automatically bounced to the new address. If you find that you can't restore your saved highlights, your user ID cookie might not have been transferred from the old site. Try clicking this link. You'll end up back on this page and hopefully your user ID will have been transferred to this domain.
Clashfinder and User Data
7th March 2011
Due to popular demand (well, three people), I've added a method for downloading the data for the clashfinders in JSON, XML or iCalendar format. To access the data, visit a clashfinder and click the 'Export' link in the top menu.
You can also access the saved data for a user. For this you'll need the short User ID (UID), which can be found in the 'Sharing' box on any clashfinder page. Once you've got the UID, go to, replacing [UID] with the user ID.

Table of Recommended Clashfinders
16th September 2010
As this site's grown, it's become increasingly difficult to see which festivals have clashfinders and which ones don't. To alleviate the problem I've created a table of available clashfinders and put it on the right-hand column of most pages (including this one, look over there -->).
I'll only add a clashfinder to the table if I think it's of interest to a sufficient number of people. It's a manual process so, if you create a clashfinder, it may take a few days for it to appear in the table. If you think I've forgotten to add your clashfinder, send me an email -- there's a link at the bottom of the page.
If you're thinking about setting up a clashfinder you should still look at the clashfinder list (link in the menu at the top) because that's an automatically generated list and it's guaranteed to be up-to-date.

I've added a feature and taken one away.
The clashfinders will now automatically adjust the number of pages based on the number of stages being displayed. Where there are fewer stages, you'll get more than one day on each page -- often the whole document will fit on a single page. For clashfinders with lots of stages, each day will split over several pages.
Because it now happens automatically, the single-page clashfinder option has been removed. If you want a three-day single-page clashfinder, click Customise followed by the Stages tab and reduce the number of stages to 8 or fewer.

I've created a clashfinder skin for mobile devices. If you visit a clashfinder with a mobile device like an iPhone, you get a message box near the top that gives you the address of the mobile version. If you want to type the address, replace /s/ with /m/ in the address of any clashfinder any you'll get the mobile version.
I should probably admit that the mobile version isn't really a clashfinder, just a list of acts, because the structure's broken down to fit on the screen. It's got a quick search function -- just type the first three or four letters of an act in the box at the top, hit enter and only the acts with the search text will be shown. Clear the text box to return to the full list. To allow easier scrolling, you can collapse the list by tapping on a day or stage title. Tap a title again to restore the full list.

I've created a list of all the current clashfinders on the site. Note that this doesn't include the Glasto 2007 and 2008 clashfinders because they're the old-style pdf versions.
At the bottom of that page, there's a link that will allow you to create clashfinders for other festivals. All that you'll need to create one is a set list for the festival (preferably with times, although you can make them up) and a bit of nerdiness.

I've moved my old Glastonbury clashfinders to the new site:
