LeeFest Presents The Neverland is back. Last summer saw 5,000 revellers, dozens of musicians, artists and DJs enter The Neverland for its first round.
In 2016 LeeFest Presents The Neverland hosted a need-to-know roster of acts including Lianne La Havas, Circa Waves, Ghostpoet, Shura, We Are Scientists and Roots Manuva as well as three days of good times from across the spectrum of hip hop, pop, grime, disco, funk, soul and punk. But it’s not just the bigger name acts that makes their lineups special, in its first edition The Neverland championed some of the most hotly musicians around including Little Simz, Loyle Carner, Skinny Girl Diet, Spring Kings, Demob Happy, Oscar, The Big Moon and Girli Nimmo.
LeeFest has a reputation for launching international stars with an alumni featuring numerous Mercury Prize and Brit award nominees and winners including London Grammar, Bastille, Years & Years, Jack Garratt, and Young Fathers.
For 2017 LeeFest are bringing back their three realms: The Neverwoods, Mermaid’s Lagoon and Skull Ridge, each with their own lineup. Different tribes thrive in each realm: The Lost Boys run the tranquil Neverwoods, The Mermaids are the decadent queens of Mermaids Lagoon, and punk loving Pirates overrun Skull Ridge.
Lee and the team are set to bring back their carefully curated non-music line up. In 2016 this positioned The Neverland as one of the most exciting emerging festivals around. Neverlanders enjoyed burlesque, cabaret, dance classes and drag queens, as well as food fights, hot tubs, theatre, glitter wrestling, comedy, craft markets, talk and debates and to top it off… a tranquility spa.
Recognised as one of the top players in the UK festival market and with a whole host of award nominations for their outstanding first year, The Neverland 2017 should not to be missed.
Join the movement and live the fantasy to never grow old.

The history of LeeFest festival
The homegrown festival is run by Lee Denny, and a small team of friends. They rebelliously founded the event in his back garden in Bromley, Kent in 2006 whilst his parents were away on holiday. Denny holds strong beliefs in what makes a great festival:
'We believe the best festival atmospheres are created by energetic young artists, new music, and creative experiences beyond the music!'
