Now in its 11th year our friends at Farmfest promise another scintillating line up. Situated at Gilcombe Farm in Bruton, just outside Bristol, and ran without any corporate sponsorship by a group of friends.
The festival has grown in size since its inception in 2006 where only 400 excited punters attended, today we are talking closer to 5000. Farmfest’s original ethos of Homemade, Down to Earth, Creative, Resourceful, Collaborative and Affordable still prevails however.
This year the line up promises another heady mix of local, national and international talent.
Friday’s headliners, 2014 Mercury Prize winners, Young Fathers will offer another us selection of hip hop and pop that only they know how. On Saturday, headliners are Radio 1 and BBC 6 Music’s Gilles Peterson and Gogo Penguin. No doubt Gogo penguin will treat us to a selection of break-beats, infectious piano melodies and powerful bass lines.
Candy Darling and Pearson Sound b2b Kowton make up the Bristol contingent.
Other acts include Hot 8 Brass Band, My Baby, Shilpa Ray, Plastic Mermaids, Rachael Dadd, Pete Josef, Holy Two (France), Haiku Salut, Afriquoi (DJ Set), Matuki, Desert Sound Colony, Rhain, Tamu Massif, Antimatador, The Flamenco Thief, ThisisDA, Titus Monk, Passion Bel Canon, Lone, Bentley Rhythm Ace, Lefto, Jon K and Franklin.
Located so close to Bristol you have no excuse not to attend.
Farmfest takes place across 29-30th July, with limited tickets still available here.
