Doffing a feathered cap to Peter Pan LeeFest will offer lost boys and girls the opportunity to take a journey into their never-ending party as the festival hosts three distinct realms within The Neverland providing an immersive adventure at their new home, a secret location near Tunbridge Wells, in Kent.
After a year out LeeFest has announced it will return to celebrate 10 years and is moving to a new and larger site from Friday 28th until Sunday 30th July 2016.
The Neverland will comprise of three themed areas - Mermaids Lagoon is for all those seeking the Club Tropicana high-life of cocktails, sunshine and 80s glam. Skull Ridge lies in The Neverland shadows - a living embodiment of shadowy fantasies and attractions expect a pounding, relentless soundtrack of bass, grunge and punk. The Neverwoods offers panoramic natural vistas and a place of tranquillity, nourishment and well-being in an ambient forest offering new music, arts and crafts in a no nonsense paradise celebrating good times and joy.
This non-profit music festival started as a community of 150 young people in a back garden. The festival has now grown to 2,000 people in a field with the same vibe retained.
Although being centred around young people the festival is targeted at an audience of all ages and offers opportunities for unsigned artists to play alongside seasoned professionals.
There are no acts confirmed yet for 2016.
Early bird tickets are priced at £80, and tickets rise in tiers to £120 for the weekend. A teen (aged 13 to 16 years) weekend ticket is priced at £50. Under 12's get in free and must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 21 at all times when on site. Maximum 3 teens or children per adult. Parking is priced at £10, and a live in vehicle is priced at £40.
LeeFest exists on the belief that a festival should be about bringing a community of people together to celebrate the best musicians and artists of the moment and to construct an environment of unbounded creativity. A far cry from the profiteering of some larger festivals, LeeFest is entirely run by volunteers, ensuring that all its revenue is used to build the event and support local charities.
