Set in the idyllic surrounds of Merton Farm in Canterbury, 'Lounge On The Farm's rustic charms will play host to 160 bands spread across 6 stages, from local heroes and cutting edge acts to renowned heavy hitters.
Lounge On The farm's line up is an eclectic snapshot of a vibrant music scene having established itself as an event that supports local break-through talent and brings the big boys to the garden of England.
With an ethos firmly rooted in the local community the heartbeat of Lounge On The Farm is 'The Village Green' where people come to meet, eat, drink and be merry enjoying the hospitality provided by an array of concessions from the surrounding community. From the hand reared pigs on the Hog Roast and the fine 3 course dining experience of The Goods Shed gypsy caravan restaurant, to all of the fruit and veg that is grown within a 20 mile radius of the festival site, Lounge On The Farm's buy local, eat seasonal policy means that the food on offer will outshine every other festival around and we haven't even mentioned the drink yet.
As a festival geared to all ages, this year sees The Little Lounge expanding to cater for even more new-borns and up, from toddlers to teenagers. There will be plenty of workshops to keep the kids interested with the local circus school adding to the last year's repertoire that includes beatboxing, kite making and DJing. There's also the Red Tent for tots that will be providing baby yoga, reiki for new parents and mothers meeting! This year will also see the School of Rock, a countywide battle of the bands from local schools that is sure to unearth Kent's next superstars. Music for Change will also bring drumming and story telling from all corners of the world.
With their non-corporate stance and a commitment to supporting local business and bands, Lounge On The Farm is the cream of the Kentish crop and a world apart from all the identikit festivals on the calendar.
