Farmfest continues to have an ever-growing number of faithful fans. This is certainly down to the unique atmosphere that the festival induces, which is one of relaxation, calm, and serenity. Don’t get us wrong, with decorated dance tents around the grounds, playing all manner of dance classics, and a huge lineup of bands signed, there is literally something for everyone.
With the festival on the smaller side of things, there is a wonderfully tranquil, aggression-free atmosphere. The camping area is really quite close to the main stage; at Farmfestival you’re never too far away from the action.

Keeping its laid back, sponsor free, handmade aesthetic, the festival features stalls, organic food, organic cider from a local community orchard, crazy golf, Punch & Judy and a children's tent. The weekend is unlike most festivals, it is as relaxing as it is fun.
This is the sort of festival where people help each other put up their tents, where stag parties unite with families and groups of school leavers. Despite the amounts of organic cider being drunk, there really is very little boisterous behaviour, the overall tone is one of unity and peace.
People are simply there to drink, dance and have a good time. Surely that’s what all good festivals aspire to be.
