Laurel Collective and friends are putting on their unique forest music festival in a beautiful secret woodland location, just one hour outside London.This year’s line up boasts Micachu and the Shapes, Lucy Rose, Anais Mitchell. Alongside Hip hop artist Dels, festival curators Laurel Collective, stolen records very own Pete and the Pirates, Man Like Me, Three Trapped Tigers, Post War Years, Elan Tamara and CLOUT! Full line up and details below.
Curated, organised and built by the band with a small team of dedicated helpers, including celebrated event producer Lisa Farrell, the festival is fast becoming known as a benchmark
show for breaking acts, having seen Anna Calvi, Micachu + The Shapes, Connan Mockas in and The Invisible all play storming sets on the cusp of career success.
Cutting edge music, arts and crafts collide in a forest-covered amphitheatre as punters mingle with nature and music over two stages, with locally sourced ale and food. A silent disco and fireside larks keep things going until sunrise in a peaceful valley beside the site, and with only 500 tickets available, this one-day event has fast become one of the must attended parties of the year. If your festival experiences involve warm pints of foamy Carling in a corporate mud bath, this is as far away as you can get…
