It’s time to blow the dust off of your tents, grab your wellies and buy a year’s worth of dry shampoo, because the summer festival season has arrived!
We know it can be tough choosing what festivals to go to, so we’d like to offer some guidance. If unique, quirky and intimate is what your seeking, then Larmer Tree Festival should be the one right at the top of your list.
Set in the backdrop of the Dorset and Wiltshire countryside, the Victorian gardens of Cranborne Chase plays host across 5 days (13th-17th July 2016) to Larmer Tree, the eccentric festival providing music, comedy, theatre, poetry and more to festival-goers.
Join the whole festival experience and camp, glamp or even stay in a caravan on site. Then venture out into the festival to enjoy 5 stages of music with over 80 acts performing. These include Jamie Cullum, Tom Odell, The Stranglers, Calexico, Caro Emerald, Jack Savoretti, Gabrielle Aplin, Afro Celt Sound System and many more.
It’s not just music that Larmer Tree Festival has on offer though! It also boasts a Comedy Club with comedians including Mark Steel, Paul Foot, Sam Simmons, The Boy with Tape on his Face and more, theatre and shows, poetry, literature & talks, family entertainment, workshops and experiences, food and drink and some great extras and eccentricities including songlines signings with an opportunity to get up close and personal with many of the performers and artists after their sets.
If you’re a night owl, then there are some great parties for you to get your dance on at. This year sees the return of late-night venue, The Hide with a Shepherd’s Hut bar to top up your glasses, and some top-class DJs to keep you moving. Then there’s The Social, where you can enjoy high-energy live music and buzzing DJs, with a late-opening bar ready to quench the thirst of the hardiest of dancers.
Don’t miss out on a great time – get yourself down to Larmer Tree Festival and prepare to be entertained! Head on over to the Larmer Tree website for the full line-up.
