Farmfestival is held on an Organic farm near Bruton, Somerset. The event is a non profit making festival that raises money for good causes.
Farmfestival is not corporate in any way, and promotes and showcases local, regional and national bands on two stages, the main stage and the tent stage. Music includes, rock, pop, indie, ska, reggae, dub, blues and folk.
To celebrate it's birthday there's a new comedy, spoken word and talks tent headed up by Eddie Argos (Art Brut), alternative comedy curated by Bristol Punchline, featuring Wil Hodgson, and Phil Jerrod. Writing poetry with local poet Paul Tobin, a pop-up cinema, yoga and sound bath sessions with Will Wheeler and Otto Haddad.
On Saturday afternoon there will be plenty of party games including giant present wrapping, pro musical statues, face painting challenges, music bingo and ballon hat making with Lucy Lost-it.
Plunge Theatre return with a weird and wonderful birthday party – set in the sugary-sweet world of Plunge's quaint little tea room, there'll be games, song, dance and CAKE like you've never seen before.
The famous kids tent, renamed 'Blue Skies, Beetroot and Birthdays' will as ever be bursting at the seams with arts and crafts activities for toddlers to tweenies; make farm animal friend puppets in 'make and take' sessions, create musical instruments from recyclable materials and join in the Singaling workshops, practice your circus skills on The Green or have a dance to Robyn Howe's whistle stop tour of West End Shows. Peas in a Pod deliver yoga based storytelling as well as hot chocolate and bedtime stories, Global Foolishness will be back with a family pirate show and it'll all be topped off with the Duhig Family Disco, Farmfest's resident children’s DJ!
Oh, and don't forget to wear a hat, it's compulsory (and the best hats gets free tickets to next year's festival!).
