We’re proud to announce here at In-Reach that after two years off, we’ll again be covering Farr Festival which is now in it’s 7th year of existence. Farr Festival 2016 has been dubbed by the production as the ‘most ambitious to date’, flaunting improved stages, new areas, and stage hosts to compliment the deep selection of underground music on show.[soundcloud url=”https://api.soundcloud.com/playlists/172926632″ params=”color=ff5500&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false” width=”100%” height=”450″ iframe=”true” /]
Set deep in the Bygrave Woods in Hertfordshire (still only 25 minutes from Kings Cross), Farr prides itself on being an intimate, exclusive festival with limited tickets and numbers to reinforce that musical community vibe we all know and love. The festival is spread over three nights from the 14th to the 17th of July and tickets are really reasonably priced @ £100 each for the weekend (camping included), with a buy 3 get 1 free scheme on the books as well. The festival concept is very much surrounded by the community concept, so besides feeling at home with your brethren of ravers, Farr have got you covered on all the things you should probably care about but don’t really have time to… Involving the local community with the set-up, sourcing responsible food and recycling 95% of the waste. The usual hot-dog stands and stag-do-type stalls are replaced with yoga tents, sweet stands and vintage clothing pop-ups, along with Lucia No.3 – a deep nervous-system relaxation experience. There’s still a fairground though, for when you need to get dizzy. Anyway, onto the line-up…
There are six stages at this year’s Farr; four we’ve seen before in The Shack, Adventures In Success, The Raj Mahal, This Must Be The Place and two new stages called Hidden Palace and The Terrace. Make sure to check out the full line-up below to pick out your own ones to watch, but here are a few of the ones we’re going out to see (certified sets); man like dBridge, Skeptical, VIVEK, SP:MC, and Jungle. A few on the radar to watch out for when you’re there; Kid Drama, R.O.S.H., MC Fokus and Becca D. There’s a whole plethora of house and techno music if that takes your fancy too, maybe on the Sunday when you’re batteries need recharging…
That’s all from us, if you’re interested in becoming a Woodland Warrior and want to find out about tickets or any other information check out the website here.
