An award-winning festival that’s renowned for its friendly and relaxed atmosphere, not to mention its incredible music line-ups, Barn of the Farm is set to delight visitors when it returns to Gloucestershire this summer.
Taking place at Over Farm in Gloucester from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 July 2018, this year’s festival is set to deliver another sensational showcase, with one of the UK’s hottest stars, Tom Grennan, returning as a headline act on Saturday, and Tom Misch on Sunday.
What’s more with plenty of chart-topping musicians, up-and-coming acts, and an unbeatable, intimate setting, Barn on the Farm promises to delight festival goers of all ages.
SoGlos has picked out its highlights below, with full information available by visiting barnonthefarm.co.uk directly.
Barn of Farm’s main 2018 headliner is one of the country’s hottest talents of the moment, Tom Grennan, who returns to this summer's festival to deliver huge hits such as his new track, 'Sober' on Saturday. Meanwhile on Sunday the headline act will be acclaimed musician Tom Misch, who's been hailed as NME as ‘precise yet effortless — and his guitar skills are prodigious’.
There’s also the chance to see firm festival favourites, Mystery Jets, hot off the success of its sell-out tour, Jetrospective and its fifth album, Curve of the Earth. And Fickle Friends will perform a special acoustic set which is sure to delight crowds.
Rising stars include the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Dermot Kennedy; Manchester indie pop band Pale Waves; and Tom Walker, the hitmaker behind popular single ‘Leave a Light On’.
Music fans can look forward to plenty more highlights on the impressive line-up including singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi; British musician Jade Bird; 'Stay Out' singer Nina Nesbitt; and Lewis Watson whose second album Midnight was released in 2017.
Other names such as singer-songwriter Zac Abel; Ady Suleiman whose debut album is out now; country singer Catherine McGrath; and Matt Maltese add to the brilliant programme during Barn on the Farm.
Barn on the Farm won’t be letting festival goers go hungry or thirsty, thanks to its selection of caterers which will be cooking a wide variety of produce in the arena, with Over Farm’s shop also selling food at the site entrance.
For those who enjoy a tipple, there’ll also be a reasonably-priced bar selling an impressive selection of drinks, while there will be bottled water available from the bars and food vendors, and free tap water at the campsite.
Great news for those who want the full festival experience, as all tickets include camping, offering the choice for visitors to either stay overnight or travel home at the end of each day if they wish.
What’s more there’s the chance to start or end the day with a freshly-cooked meal as disposable barbecues are allowed in the campsite.
Barn on the Farm is a dedicated family friendly festival, welcoming music fans of all ages to join in the summer fun!
And even better for festival fans with kids, as children under the age of 10 get free entry with a full paying adult, offering even more incentive to head to Barn on the Farm for a fun-filled family experience.
