Do you ever look at some of the major European festivals and think wow, that’s a great line-up, wish we had more like that in the UK? The constraints of a Post-Brexit world may preclude British music fans from ever experiencing exact replicas, but this year organisers, DHP Family, have certainly put a bill together, which for my money, far eclipses the line-ups of the likes of Blue Dot and Kendall Calling and many others.
Set in the heart of The National Forest, the multi award winning independent family festival returns for its 14th year. Cherished for its intimate, idyllic location, grassroots ethos and miscellany of musical offerings, the festival has become a sanctity for alternative music lovers across the country and for the local community alike. The festival is spread over 4 days, 25-28th May at Catton Hall in Derbyshire.
With lots of artists still to be announced, the confirmed line up should already be enough to convince you to go. Acts include Primal Scream, Interpol, Gary Numan, Echo & The Bunnymen, Public Service Broadcasting, Warmduscher, PigsPigsPigsPigsPigsPigsPigs, Billy Bragg, The Undertones, The Pretenders, Gogol Bordello, Yard Act, EMF, She Drew The Gun, Sleeper, The Go! Team, Millie Manders & The Shut Up, Anna Calvi, Opus Kink, Witch Fever and Pet Needs.
Recognising that the cost-of-living crisis is affecting everyone, they’ve made the decision to freeze tickets for Teens and Children at 2022 prices. Additionally, they offer monthly payment instalment plans, which enables buyers to spread the cost of purchase up until May 2023.
Weekend Tickets are priced at; Children under 7 free, 8-11 yr olds £42.80, 12-16 yr olds £69.55 and Adults £187.25 (all include booking fees)
Tickets are still on sale here, but hurry, once everyone sees this preview they’re sure to go like the proverbial hot Welsh cakes!!!
