In Pictures: Farr Festival 2015

Art & Culture

As is the plan for almost every member of the R$N team, I headed up to Bygrave Woods on Friday evening with my camera to see what the sixth edition of Farr Festival had in store. Arriving just before sun-down, I threw open my pop-up tent in the last of the light and wandered through the corn field to catch Citizen on the new main stage. Being drawn around the site by whatever sounds caught my fancy, I ended up spending most of the night at Corsica Village as Tama Sumo and Mr Ties put down some diverse sets. 

After some much needed recovery time in the sun, Farr's daytime line-up was given a huge boost this year with Benny Page and Toddla T playing out a mix up of Reggae, Drum & Bass and House to get the early crowd into the carnival spirit for the rest of the Saturday proceedings. 

As night fell upon the woods, the R$N x Society stage was swarmed by a sea of maracas being shaken along to the dance-inducing tracks of Pender Street Steppers. 

After Pender Street Steppers, Young Marco and Hunee both took to the stage under the maraca-filled canopy.

With the disco vibes going strong, I ducked out to see how DJ Koze was treating the main stage crowd. With an incredible light show, Koze ventured into almost every corner of techno imaginable and, in his own words, really did bring 'the Berghain to the woods.' At the same time, Midland was holding a mighty crowd for the final set of the weekend over at Corsica Village.

Following Midland, it was time for the quick dash back to R$N vs Society for two hours of pure DOOF DOOF from Dan Beaumont b2b Robert Owens which made for a suitable end to a weekend of pure, on-point music.
