Dizzee Rascal, and Everything Everything lead the first acts confirmed for the 'House Party' themed Blissfields, the intimate festival for all the family which happens in the heart of the Hampshire countryside, returning on Thursday 30th June to Saturday 2nd July 2016 to Woodmancott, in Hampshire, in the South of England.
Dizzee Rascal, and Everything Everything will headline the newly christened Manor Stage, with Roni Size, Sundara Karma, Jones, and longtime Blissfields favorites Dub Pistols, and Beans on Toast joining the bill.
For the first time in the festival’s history Blissfields have teamed up with an agency to host a special 'takeover' of the big top on Thursday night. For one night only, the festival will welcome 'The NOW Stage' hosted and curated by the independent bookings and management agency, This Is Now, who will stage performances from Molotov Jukebox, Too Many T's, Son Of Dave and more. Thursday tickets are available when booking weekend passes.
Blissfields favourite Hidden Hedge area will be celebrating the occasion by going even more overboard than before… crash-landing its Boeing cockpit installation into a new VJ stage, as Serial Killaz top their music bill.
Also confirmed are Subgiant, Shorebitch, Will Varley, The Church, Morgan Hislop, Frankie Forman, One Step Too Late, Blushed, Naina, The Diamond Age, Hey Charlie, Only, Deadproud, Fervent, The Great One, Sam Brothers, Ethan Ash, and Unattached.
With over a hundred more live acts and DJs across a variety of stages still to unveil.
Blissfields has always celebrated the intimate party spirit and this year it’s going all out with its biggest top secret art installation ever, creating an onteractive festival site like they’ve never done before. Blissfields will be hosting slumber parties, garage raves, retro living room discos, and so much more alongside its usual music programme, sprawled across a stunning Hampshire arena where legend has it; it never rains.
Channelling the spirit of National Lampoons and Dr. Frank N. Furter via the Bratpack, 1990’s and Skins, Blissfields will smudge the eras into the party at the end of the universe. The Blisscotheque double decker Routemaster bus will be taking a mix of the old school and freshest urban performers til dawn, accompanied as always by a loaded cocktail bar. The festival within a festival for little Blissfieldians and their families, Angel Gardens will be back programming a non-stop multi venue experience for any age. The Craft Arena and an all new A-Z ARENA hosting immersive and hands-on activities across the weekend, with some theatrical twists, and The Larch is also getting a makeover with a later run time to include a silent disco.
From its inception, Blissfields has remained the family friendly festival for forward-thinking music fans, and 2016 will be no different. Adding more music, art, discovery, games and frivolity each year the event has grown into a regular date on the UK festival calendar now receiving praise for its “small but perfectly formed” ideals.
