One of the UK’s most unique and inclusive events returns this July, centred around an ethos of unfettered festival frolics and bubbling party atmosphere. The 48 hour spectacle has been compared to a mini Glastonbury, with non-stop music running alongside comedy, workshops, and plenty of activities for kids and families. However, unlike the hundreds of thousands in attendance at many UK festivals, Farmfest is consciously capped at 5000, to create an intimate experience at every turn.
This year Farmfest has secured a very late license, allowing the four dance stages to continue the party until the early hours. After 15 years, Farmfest is still completely independent and sponsor-free, meaning the organisers have once again put their heart and soul into making the event a wholesome and unique experience for those in attendance.
Fusing different genres, artists, activities and events is never easy at a festival, but Farmfest manage to pull it off year on year. Be sure to take a look at the famous annual Hat Competition! From papier mache monsters to intergalactic explorers, Farmfest has seen some of the most marvellous creations over the event’s 15 year history.
As the temperature falls, and the activities start to die down, the real party begins. With an atmosphere that’s slowly builds throughout the day, the people and the party will run long into the night. To support this, DMX Krew’s two-decade prevalence will create a bass-heavy atmosphere like no other. He’ll be supported by Maxxi Soundsystem, Saoirse, Yu Su, A Sagittariun, Cheeba and Danielle.
The ironically named Ross From Friends will step in as this year’s dance headliner, he was a breakout star in 2018 and since then has brought about a nostalgic, light-hearted approach to the forefront of the house genre. Slightly further down the pecking order, we have the everlasting Dan Shake. Dan is joined by Luke Vibert, the timeless DJ who burst out of the 80’s Cornwall scene alongside Aphex Twin and Tom Middleton. Norman Jay MBE and The Reflex support.
As far as modest festivals go, Farmfest is bursting at the seams with talent. It takes place on Friday 30th – Saturday 31st July 2021, with adult tickets set at £99. Be sure to check this festival out, it might just take you by surprise.
