FARMFEST ANNOUNCE YEAR OFF IN 2018

The music festival in Somerset will be taking a year off in 2018, but promise to be back "bolder and brighter" in 2019

Farmfest have announced that they are to take a break in 2018, but promise that they will return in 2019.

Formed by a group of close friends in 2006, Farmfest takes place against the backdrop of the Somerset countryside and is a melting pot of musical genres. It's managed to maintain its inclusive and intimate atomosphere over the years, with the past two selling out and this year's edition looks set to be heading the same way.

In a statement, the organisers said that "having poured our hearts and souls into the project and balancing it with our day jobs, it's time to take a break, reflect and recharge, before coming back with a bang in 2019."

This year will see the mighty Roots Manuva headlining, alongside performances from Session Victim, Greg Wilson, DJ Yoda, Max Graef, Guts and Nightmares On Wax. Previous years have seen Ralph Lawson, Young Fathers, Lone, San Proper and Auntie Flo grace the fields.


There's a limited number of tickets left for this year's event. Grab yours HERE.
