Farmfest to take a break in 2018
After 12 years straight of pulling together one of the UK's best small festivals, the Farmfest team are to take a well-earned break in 2018.
The organisers explain:
“After a full twelve years of passionate persistence, ingenuity and endeavour, drinking, dancing, laughing, larking, hedonism and hard graft – entirely off our own backs without any major sponsors or funding – we’re now on our way to our third successive sell-out.”
“Starting out in 2006 as fresh-faced 20-somethings, we have become seasoned festival organisers, complete with the widening responsibilities that life brings. In the past year alone four new babies have joined the Farmfest team – bringing the mini folk count up to 8 – with imminent weddings and relocations on the horizon. Having poured our hearts and souls into the project and balancing it with our day jobs, it’s time to take a break, reflect and recharge, before coming back with a BANG in 2019!”
This year's edition - looking set to be a third successive sell-out - will take place on July 28th - 29th, with acts performing on Somerset's Gilcombe Farm including Squarepusher's Shobaleader One project, Roots Manuva, Actress, Max Graef, DJ Yoda and many more - see below for the full line-up. Tickets are on-sale now through PFTP, with a percentage of each sale donated to the Love Support Unite Foundation - find out more about our charitable partnership with Farmfest here.
