FarmFest 2019

Passed

This event has been and gone.

For 13 years Farmfest has been carefully crafted into one of the most unique and inclusive smallscale gatherings in the UK, where music and people set the tempo and the curious venture.

Set to a sumptuous Somerset backdrop, the pocket-sized field builds a swirling musical orchestra with performances from some of the finest emerging and established left-of-mainstream artists, operating within the realms of electronic, indie, folk and world, but where genre meets no border.

From early morning workouts to kids' workshops, or brilliantly blended beats to riotous jumbles of jazz and brass-based bonanzas, comedy and poetry - or just a touch of the people's spirited madness - you can come find your groove. Home to more than seven music venues, plus a host of other spaces and delights for the whole family, it's a consciously capped 5000 people capacity for the whole weekend, and a bubbling blend of unfettered festival frolics and humming party vigour.

Back for 2019, it's still run by a collective of friends, with and for the local community as an independent, non-corporate and sponsor free event, and one that gives back to charities close to their hearts.
