For the past 27 years, Philgood & Ram have played all over the world and in some of London’s biggest venues as a duo. In that time, their love for House, Old Skool, Jungle and UK Garage music has grown and evolved, inspiring them to think more creatively.
It was then that the duo first discussed curating their own festival. It wasn’t going to be the easiest thing to organise, and after struggling to find a site that would suit Proper Fest vision, the idea was put on hold.
However, late last year Philgood & Ramcame across a site in Essex and instantly fell in love with it. Just outside of Clacton-on-Sea, off the B1033 Colchester Road, is 26 acres of flat grass land. Previously, it was known as Hark Fruit Farm. It is now known as the Weeley Car Boot Site.
The land has a history as a setting for music – for five days in 1971, around 100,000 people took to the site for a huge festival, with the likes of Rod Stewart and Status Quo electrifying the crowd. Channelling the spirit of 1971, Philgood & Ramcreated Proper Fest.
Proper Fest will be a 1 day experience for everyone, taking place on the 12th April 2020, Easter Bank Holiday weekend. The festival will combine the best talent from the UK and worldwide, while also providing a platform to up-and-coming, local artists.

With love and peace to all,
