Larmer Tree Festival announces full music Line-up

Larmer Tree Festival is ecstatic to announce its full eclectic music line-up complete with some brilliant international superstars and fantastic home grown talent.  Plus, ensuring the festival keeps its family friendly focus, there’s also a fun-filled programme of shows, workshops and activities for all ages.
Joining headliners Paloma Faith, Amadou and Mariam, Jools Holland, Levellers and Roots Manuva are some great recently confirmed acts.  They are: Yes Sir Boss with very special guest, Sarah Savoy and The Francadians, Chavo, Shivering Blaze - a tribute to Jackie Leven, Tom Hingley, Police Dog Hogan, Melodica, Melody and Me, Maia, The Camberwell Krakeb Club, Silkadelic, Hannah Williams and The Tastemakers, Beth Porter and The Availables, Bookshop Band, Achilles, Saturday Sun, Tom James, The ASBO Disco, The Uplifter’s Reggae Sessions and DJ Heinz.

Founder and Co-Director of Larmer Tree Festival James Shepard said:  “We always work hard to achieve a great balance between well known, popular artists and up and coming talent on the brink of stardom - this year is no exception, we’ve got a superb line-up.”

Complementing the music line-up, there is a lot more entertainment to keep all ages amused.  As one of the most family friendly summer festivals with 11 acres of magical gardens to explore, there’s a dedicated children’s area with lots of shows and activities as well as a YouthZone for 11-17 year olds. Highlights of the kids’ programme include Emmy Award winning Farmer Jason with his lively music show, a finger-fiddling Origami Puppet Workshop followed by Hinged Theatre’s show Vasalisa and the Peacock (created especially for Larmer Tree), and new Sticky Fingers Drop-In Sessions. Plus, making a stop in their fabulous red car will be Ratty, Mole and Mr Toad!

The YouthZone offers the older kids a dedicated space to chill, make friends and find their creative side. Highlights from the YouthZone programme include a beatbox theatre workshop, didgeridoo class, environmental art, Larmer Tree Treasure Hunt, open jamming sessions, songwriting, street dance and a whole host of other exciting activities!

Plus, a firm favourite among regular Larmer Tree Festival goers is the Carnival Procession on Sunday afternoon. This year’s theme is ‘The United Colours of Larmer Tree’ - people can join 500 festival-goers in an explosion of culture, colour, sound and movement to parade around the gardens.
