Vibe

The festival remains adamantly sponsor-free, the lo-fi DIY aesthetic combining with the genre busting music policy to create the unique atmosphere. Previously quoted as one of the UK's best kept festival secrets (Dj Vadim / Venue Mag), the cat is slowly being let out of the bag.

In an interview with the organisers, they stated that they try to make the event be worthy of the best £40 you will ever spend)

In the Timeout Festival Guide 2012, the event was described as "An intimate little independent boutique festival that is a relative secret among most festival-goers, despite the staggeringly bargains £40 entry fee, which includes camping and parking. Plus, aside from the coolly cultish line-up, there will be an assault course, magic shows, crazy golf and more for the kids, plus a hat competition, the winner of which receives free tickets to next year's festival"

Stages and other entertainment

Families and kids are well catered for with their own camping space and plenty of activities to keep the little ones busy, including: Punch and Judy, magic shows, kids assault course, bouncy castle, crazy golf and the ever popular arts and crafts tent. This year we will also be screening the opening weekend of the Olympics for those keen to watch the sports, and for those who want to take part, we'll be hosting the inaugural Farmfestival Farm Olympics, which everyone can get involved in. No qualifying times needed!

With profits donated to charities Practical Action, Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance and The British Stammering Association, you can't say fairer than that.

Oh, and don't forget to wear a hat, it's compulsory (and the best hats gets free tickets to next year's festival!).

Trivia

In 2006, a small group of friends native to Somerset made the decision to host an intimate, cost-effective festival for their friends as an alternative to the events dominating the English Summer. Farmfestival's subsequent success has seen attendances grow organically through word of mouth, from an initial 400 to its capped 4000 capacity.
