Reviews of Alchemy Festival
Alchemy is a family friendly music and entertainment festival set in a wildlife reserve in Lincolnshire. It is totally non-corporate, non-sponsored and non-commercial - and the organisers plan on keeping it that way.
It runs as close to the Autumnal Equinox as possible and this year celebrations are planned around the equinox on the Saturday.
The event is designed to provide a weekend of fun and entertainment at a reasonable cost in an environment that is similar to the old style festival and, over the last few years, it has developed a reputation as such. In an interview it was particularly mentioned by Nick Turner (Hawkwind) sa being an old style event.
All costs on site are controlled by the organisers to be as close to high street prices as possible. All entertainments, including a widre range of workshops, walkabout entertainers, fire pits, fire shows, circus performers and lots, lots more are either free or reasonably priced.
There are no restrictions on people bringing their own food and drink into the event - It is just required that you not bring glass onto the site.
The music is a real mix and organisers are sure that there is something for everyone. There are 7 stages in total, one being Solar powered and another Pedal powered. These are all running through the licensed times for the event and play host to over 100 bands and DJs. Past acts have included RDF, Zion Train, Back to the Planet, Nick turner and the Outriders of the Apocalypse to name but a few.
