Noisily is about friendship, love, passion, nature and community. It doesn’t take itself too seriously, and neither do the 4,000 people who descend on Leicestershire each July. It’s fun in all its forms, pure and unadulterated. Offering an alternative to mainstream festival culture, an inclusive haven where underground music thrives and self expression flourishes.
Whilst rooted in the electronic music scenes, Noisily is a holistic environment which feeds the mind, body and soul. It’s a celebration of psychedelic art and culture in a society which is increasingly looking within for happiness and fulfilment, and away from material goods and money as the definition of success.
The festival have an amazing, receptive and intelligent community of people who they aim to mobilise through transformational experience and creative expression. By inspiring personal growth and social responsibility via the medium of art, music and healing, the festival hope to empower the individual to affect real positive change in the world.
