Barn on the Farm is one of the UK’s leading independent music festivals that is home to both the indie big-hitters and next year’s breakout stars. Offering attendees a weekend utopia of new music set in the idyllic setting of Over Farm, Barn - as it’s known by the regulars - is a festival that encourages collaboration and kinship by bringing together a community of artists and festival-goers. A place where friendships are born and songs have started life, Barn On The Farm continues to provide a cultural hub for new talent. Entering its second decade Barn has solidified itself as the festival that artists and revellers remember, and continue to return.
Today, the third wave of incredible artists for the 2023 lineup is revealed including Barn’s third headliner, the 23-year-old indie-pop star Lizzy McAlpine who is set to make her festival headline debut. The past year has seen Lizzy rise to stardom selling out headline tours around North America and Europe, and collaborating with the likes of Finneas, Jacob Collier and John Mayer. Since the release of her critically-acclaimed second album Five Seconds Flat, which features her viral single ‘ceilings’, the singer-songwriter has earned well over 300 million streams and won fans in the likes of Phoebe Bridgers and Shawn Mendes.She will be joining New Jersey rock band, fronted by the eight-time Grammy Award-winning record producer and songwriter Jack Antonoff, Bleachers and BRIT and NME award-winning, Ivor Novello and BBC Sound of 2022 nominated Holly Humberstone as Barn’s three headliners this year - all of which will be playing their very first UK festival headline slots.

In its twelfth year, Barn On The Farm has grown from an intimate friends and family event to one of the UK’s most exciting and groundbreaking new music festivals, giving the biggest and most successful British artists including Ed Sheeran and Lewis Capaldi, as well as breakout US stars like Maggie Rogers, their first ever festival headline slots. Such is the spirit and essence of Barn On The Farm, artists return to the festival year after year, making multiple appearances in ever-growing slots with returning artists having included Griff, Maisie Peters, Easy Life and The Staves. Barn finds artists early in their career and champions them all the way through the festival stages, providing a space of collaboration at Over Farm in Gloucester.
Last June, Barn On The Farm welcomed over 3000 festival goers to the farm, with a lineup that spanned some of the most enduring names in British music, including Bombay Bicycle Club and special guests The Vaccines, as well as incredible new talent including Easy Life, Beabadoobee and Griff. Capturing the spirit and ethos of Barn - a festival that has more in common with artist-led gatherings of the 1970s than modern, heavily branded events - every year Barn On The Farm encourages artist collaboration with the “Farm Band”. Getting six artists together to reimagine and rearrange their songs, last year Holly Humberstone, Dylan Fraser, Flyte, Maisie Peters, JP Saxe and Rob Milton collaborated for a surprise performance on The Wooden Barn Stage. Alumni of Barn include Sam Fender, Maggie Rogers, Wolf Alice, Tom Misch, Dermot Kennedy, George Ezra, Ed Sheeran, Hozier, The Staves & more.
This year, Barn is set to welcome its biggest number of festival goers in the festival's history. Founder of Barn On the Farm, Josh Sanger, comments:
"So every year I sit down with a blank line-up sheet and wonder what journey I'll go on when booking it. For some, a line-up is merely a selection of artists on a festival poster, to me the line-up is sacred, it has to be the best thing I've seen globally and it needs to make me feel something raw. We are a small festival, super intimate and so I can't possibly get the biggest acts in the world to fly to a Barn in Gloucester... or could I??? Well, this year I found out I can. Lizzy McAlpine, Bleachers and Holly Humberstone - arguably the most exciting artists in the world right now are headlining Barn and not only that, it's the first time any of them have headlined a festival before!!
Today we announce Lizzy McAlpine as our Friday headliner - she's an artist I never thought we'd ever get the chance to champion on the farm but it's bloody happening and I couldn't be happier. She is THE artist right now. I get chills listening to her music, every lyric hits and that is why she is currently sitting at #7 in the UK chart. Tickets are on sale but we all know Barn is small and intimate, and we want to keep it that way, so get in quick before they're all gone! We'd love to see you there for what will be the most special weekend of our collective summers'.Barn is your festival and this line-up is everything I hoped it would be.
See you there x"
