Now known as The Crazy Little Party in the Woods, Farr Festival – Hertfordshire’s very own musical boutique experience- returns for its fifth year for three days and nights of fun, brighter and bolder than ever before. Reeling from the critical success of last year, this little festival promises to deliver for fans of drum ‘n’ bass, deep house, disco and everything in between.
With backing from big name organisers, world-renowned DJs and nuanced electronic artists, it is clear to see why people flock to the enchanted Bygrave Woods to add a slice of magic to their summer and this two-day fiesta looks to provide just that. Farr provides a step away from the sponsored mud of bigger festivals (not mentioning any names…) and offers a more intimate atmosphere than any other in the UK.
Though the organisers seek to keep this little gem hidden from the masses to maintain the festival’s vibes, this by no means points towards a weak line-up, often associated with small-scale festivals; the likes of Mount Kimbie, Hercules & Love Affair and SCUBA no doubtably hold the most ground in their appropriate headline slots but what is great about Farr is the variety of talent on offer; spanning genres and transgressing scene-specific cultures.
Highlights over the weekend include The Skints, Bicep, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Move D, Detroit Swindle and many, many more. Head on over to the Farr Festival Blog to keep track of all the latest news and gossip.
Now at the end of ticket release, weekend camping can be bought for a mere £99. But why not take the extra step into enchantment? With a range of tipis, yurts and bell tents, Farr Festival provides all the tools to go native. Though I’d still bring my wellies.
Nominated in the ‘Best Festival’ category at the annual DJ Mag Best of British Awards, it’s time to delve further into the festival experience than ever before. Go Farr.
