A Big Thank You!


Ladies and gentleman of the fields, we are completely overwhelmed and hugely delighted to the response to this year’s lineup. Our 12th year in the fields and we are very nearly sold out of general admission tickets. Now, ticketing forecasts is not an exact science but we think it’s fair to assume the last of the tickets will be gone a week from now. Our final tickets can be bought here


The love shown for the festival from you is humbling.


More artists to be announced very soon, starting with Tim Peaks and Houseparty later this week!


See you in the fields!
