Equinox Festival- Brought to you by the old Alchemy crew....the workers are now running the show and taking it into their third year with their own festival Equinox.
We united to continue what we believe is a beautiful thing -Where else do all the tribes come together and celebrate? Don't we put on the best party in the universe?! 2016 and 2017 have shown everyone just what we can do and we can't wait to do it all again.
There'll be over a hundred bands and DJs again on our six stages, including our two banging dance tents- Sunrise and Lunar, with their crazy decor and stage shows to match, our solar powered Soundscape stage and the Crispy Disco stage- dedicated to one of the original members of the tribe-Crispian Baker, then we've got our new venue for 2018...The Big Dub Pub!
Previous year's line up has included Lee Scratch Perry, Gong, System7, Nicky Blackmarket. This year's line-up is being added to daily announced so keep watching, but as ever, we'll have something for everyone.
Fire shows created by a pyromaniac genius, workshops and heritage crafts the like of which many of you will never have seen before, chill out areas, healing area, our central fire and of course our Children's Area featuring Gypsy Pyksy and Foolhardy Circus to keep the little ones entertained.
Food and drink? High Street prices at most. Still bring your own if you want, but our traders will be offering the finest in street food for vegans and meat-eaters alike and tempting you with a great selection, and anything from real ale or a cheeky cocktail or a smoothie to perk you up from that night before, to handmade crafts collected worldwide and glow sticks and ridiculousness too tempting to walk by.
So come join us, show your support for the festival that just won't stop and the collective tribe that you are part of each September.
