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:
"We're unbelievably excited to announce even more of the most incredible acts for this year's Barn including The Staves, Caity Baser & Future Utopia (After Dark) for a late-night DJ sesh. Alongside that, we're also adding some of my favourite new artists Matilda Mann, Conor Albert, Beaux, Hutch and ADMT as well as teaming up with Plested and his publishing company SONGHOUSE for a Wooden Barn takeover on Friday, putting on some of his friends who also happen to be some of the very best songwriters worldwide: Gracey, Annika Bennett, Pablo, Ines Dunn and Charlie Oriain! And finally, the intimate Thursday line-up is here and we can't wait to welcome the likes of Rhys Lewis, Lily Moore, Sody & a very special secret headliner (who is gonna be phenomenal) to Barn. HOLD TIGHT xx"
