Lemonfest 2015 - More Acts Announced including The Subways

Lemonfest - the 1 day festival spectacular (with camping) - has announced more acts onto its blistering line-up. With four nominations at the recent 2014 UK festival awards, Lemonfest is fast-becoming one of the UK’s premiere boutique music festivals.

First up: World-conquering UK indie rock outfit The Subways have played and headlined major festivals all over the globe. They’ve also found considerable favour in the US, touring with the biggest rock bands and appearing on prime time chat shows. They are huge addition to Lemonfest and add to its ever-growing ‘small and mighty’ reputation.

Other New Acts Announced: Devonshire native ‘Rosie Lowe’ has established herself as an immense talent and and is currently scaling the heights of the music industry, her hometown crowd are sure to rapturously receive one of their most successful musical exports in recent memory. Cornish Reggae rockers and festival favourites ‘Backbeat Soundsystem’ - recently signed to prestigious reggae label Easy Star Records and finding popularity in the States, will be sure to lively up the crowd, and fresh from releasing their single featuring Chris Wolstenhome of MUSE, local ‘filthy-indie-blues’ duo ‘Moriaty’ will headline the Locally Grown Stage, which will also feature Newton Abbot’s own ‘Reggeaskas’. 

Also get ready for awe-inspiring performances from electro-terrifiers ‘Lords of Lightning’ where ‘creative genius meets electrical wizardry’. Try to avoid being shocked by this spectacle presented by the outlandish and infamous Arcadia group. Then there’s the faithful ‘Silent Disco’, open until 4am for those who aren’t quite ready for bed yet (campers only). 

The newly announced acts will be joining legendary crowd favourite, DJ Yoda who will cut & paste through his new ‘Breakfast of Champions’ live show. Multiple award winning ska, dub, hip-hop, breakbeat, punk outfit, Dub Pistols. The UK’s revered scruffy folk sage, Beans on Toast, and lyrical Dream Pop specialists, Matthew and Me. 

BBC Introducing will once again be supporting the ‘Locally Grown’ stage with live broadcasts and interviews. This stage has become an important factor which has allowed the festival to maintain popularity and cultivate the best local bands. Organiser Matt Freemantle, says; 

We are over the moon to have booked these acts and secure our strongest line-up yet. The addition of Lords of Lightning is a very exciting one for us too, and will provide an immense spectacle for those who manage to catch them on the day. We will continue striving towards our ambition of putting on the UK’s best boutique festival”.

Continuing their ethos of engaging local talent and businesses, the two dance tents are booked by local promoters RINSE:IT (Drum & Bass) and SOULOUD (House & techno) who will both will host their own tents - line-ups to be announced soon. Significant names from the dance music world are still TBA.

Amongst the attractions shall be: ‘Downtown’ - new for 2015 - an interactive area with immersive theatre, artwork and DJs playing funk/soul/disco/60s/70s). International food stalls including the Lemonfeast Street Food Market, both of which will compliment a ‘Mini Local Real Ale and Cider Fest’. Plus! Space hopper racing, fairground rides, Kids area and Busking at the Bar Stage.

Now in its 6th year, this esteemed festival will stay true to its original ethos of no major sponsors or VIP area and remains completely self-sufficient. Despite the opportunity to expand, organisers are keen to keep the event small and perfectly formed. 

Five stages include, Main, Dance Tent, Drum’n’Bass Arena, Acoustic & BBC Introducing’s Locally Grown. 

Transport to the festival couldn’t be easier, with regular trains into Newton Abbot Station.
