The Streets, Ellie Goulding and Echo & The Bunnymen have been confirmed as the main headliners for the Lounge on the Farm festival which takes place at Merton Farm, Canterbury from the 8th – 10th July 2011.
Lounge on the Farm has carved itself out a niche as a festival known for its unique location on a real life, working farm (with real animals roaming about), plus a strong focus on delicious locally sourced food, family friendly atmosphere and reputable line-up Lounge on the Farm will also double its capacity in 2011 to 10,000 people.
The festival will also cement itself as one of the key boutique UK festivals for the summer and at just 55 mins on a train from Kings Cross, this is an easy festival to get to for Londoners.
2011 sees the festival introduce its new Main Stage (capacity 4000), a move that will see the festival grow to new heights whilst preserving its core ethos – booking a line up that mixes new bands from across the board with classic heritage acts.
Additionally, The Sheep Dip Stage will be hosted by Moshi Moshi, Transgressive Records and Chess Club on subsequent nights, ensuring a slew of cutting-edge bands are presented. Meanwhile, The Cowshed – formerly the main stage of the festival – becomes The Hoe Down. The 2000 capacity tent, kitted out with state of the art sound systems, will turn into the most unique dance arena in the country, keeping the party going till the early hours.
The newest addition to the festival this year is The Meadows Stage, replacing The Further Stage; it will remain a haven for an eclectic mix of bands across the musical spectrum. Whilst at The Farm Folk Stage, festival-goers can laze away the day in the sun listening to bluegrass, Americana and traditional folk.
