The first acts have been announced for this year's September Alchemy Festival.
Confirmed for the small family friendly festival are Spanner, New York Brass Band, The Soul Circle Gang, China Shop Bull, Ferocious Dog, Culture Shock, and Will Tun and The Wasters.
Musically its diverse but well programmed with most music tastes catered for someplace or other on the site at Scholey Park, 1 mile from Coningsby & Tattershall, Lincoln in Lincolnshire and returns in 2014 from Friday 19th to Sunday 21st September.
Early bird tickets are available priced at £70 for an adult weekend ticket. An under 16 ticket is priced at £15. Under 5's are free and don't require a ticket. A Family (2 adults and 3 children) ticket is priced at £185. A car parking ticket is priced at £8, and a live in vehicle pass is priced at £20. Dog pass (limited) £20.
The festival will also include a bubble tent, and circus area with fire shows, jugglers, poi and many other oddities! The site will have many works of art and sculptures, stalls, more food traders than last year, tarot readers and communal fire pits, and every day will be a dress fancy day.
There will be a large children's area at Alchemy containing circus skills, workshops, bubbles, face painting, shows, talks and performances. There will even be a children's open mic. Everything in the childrens area will be free. The festival aims to be as green as possible and support fair trade, and hopes to have a local cider company on site selling homemade cider and mead.
Alchemy are opening up the options for arts grants for on site installations earlier this year to give people more time to be creative. They are offering up to £300 for art that fits with the ethos of the Festival - low carbon, re-cycled wherever possible, tactile or involving people installations will always get preferential treatment.
