As previously announced – The Streets, Ellie Goulding and Echo & The Bunnymen are confirmed as main headliners for the July event. Lounge on the Farm is the first UK festival to announce the appearance of The Streets and Ellie Goulding.
Lounge on the Farm have been big supporters throughout British MC Example’s career and this year will see his third performance at the festival – currently working on his third album, fans should expect to be treated to new tracks.
Widely respected for her electronic dance shows on Radio 1, Annie Mac is notorious for getting the party started with her jam-packed DJ sets and her appearance at LOTF’s Hoe Down stage will be no exception.
BBC music poll forerunner Jamie Woon is also now confirmed, along with buzzy acts Devlin, Liam Bailey and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs – Lounge on the Farm is fast securing the hottest line up of the summer.
The Sheep Dip Stage which will be hosted by Moshi Moshi, Rockfeedback and Chess Club on subsequent nights, has announced its first bands for the festival. With the likes of Trophy Wife, Fixers, Leah Mason, Chad Valley, Still Corners, Let’s Buy Happiness and Kyla La Grange already confirmed, punters can expect the best in cutting-edge music throughout the weekend.
The first confirmations for the Farm Folk stage include renowned one-man-band Bob Log III, Australian blues singer C.W. Stoneking, Philip Roebuck, folk pop quintet Ellen & the Escapades, Marthas & Arthurs and Lulu & the Lampshades amongst other Americana, bluegrass and traditional folk acts. The very special line up for The Meadows stage will be released late March.
Having carved itself out a niche as a festival known for its unique location on a real life, working farm (with real animals roaming about), plus a strong focus on delicious food, family friendly atmosphere and reputable line-up, Lounge on the Farm Festival will double its capacity in 2011 to 10,000 people and also cement itself as one of the key boutique UK festivals for the summer. At just 55 mins on a train from Kings Cross, this is an easy festival to get to for Londoners.
