Goes the sound of the stable door.
Our first wave of acts is out.
The Kooks, Bananarama and Scouting for Girls will play over the 3rd – 6th August.
Altern 8, Crazy P (DJ set) Norman Jay MBE, Krafty Kuts, The Legends of Goldie Lookin Chain (live show) Plump DJs, Booty Bass, Hippo Soundsystem, Samedia Shebeen, Shaka Loves You and the Chemical Prodigies are also on the bill, with more acts to come.
Arcadia’s Alchemist Playground will return – much to the delight of everyone. By day, this field is a hive of activity. The Woodland Tribe will be on hand to help build a playground out of reclaimed materials, upon which the kids will dance, when finished. The popular welding workshops are back but this year they’ll be run by the brilliant WTF crew and catering for all ages.
New for this year, Elly Phunk, will offer DJ lessons for kids and teens. Not only that, there will be eco-bubble making and Junkfish inflatables for the little ones. Plus more craft activities than you can shake a felt-tip pen at.
By night, the iconic Afterburner fires up. Expect flares, flames and cutting-edge, heart-in-your-mouth performances. Plus the Lord of Lightning will return – shooting multi-million-volt bolts of electricity from his body, a spectacle like no other.
Built from a Rolls Royce jet engine called an Afterburner, the stage is surrounded by a circle of metal trees and flames. The dancefloor is designed with the DJ in the middle, so you can party with beaming faces all around you.
Luke Hasell, festival founder says:
‘Guaranteed good times ahead! And we’ve only just started. Families, you’ll find something for your toddlers, teens, parents and grandparents! Everyone needs to GET ON MY LAND!’
