The site should be open for campers from Friday 9am until the Monday at 1pm. Aside from the music, there will be plenty of amazing attractions including The Village Green with ciders, beers and food concessions where all the goods are sourced from within a 20 mile radius of the site, a solar cinema, there will also be the Little Lounge and Red Tent to keep the younger crowd occupied and the School Of Rock that will be unearthing Kent's future stars. The charity Strummerville will be on site, holding one of their infamous campfires in celebration of the late great Joe Strummer.

The Playhouse the theatre & performance stage will be hosted by local artists Lucy & Lizzie by day. Based on a theme of Found and Framed, a variety of artists, both performance and visual, will explore the regeneration of ideas and forms, objects and materials. There will also be wandering performance artists, plus a Panto-themed dress-up & workshops organised by Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury. By night The Playhouse will become Lounge On The Farm's comedy stage, with local talent taking over the Friday, and internationally-renowned side-splitters programmed by Underbelly for the Saturday & Sunday nights.

Lounge On The Farm also has The Meadow field (moving location this year) which is an extension of everything Lounge On The Farm stands for. From an open air theatre stage to a petting zoo, via pottery classes and foraging the Kentish countryside this is a slice of festival action with out the music.

More information will be here when available.
