Big names, booming basslines, boutique festival in a bull field...it can only mean one thing... Moovin Festival is back for 2021 and promises to get you dancing to a music lover’s mix of bass, funk, soul, reggae, house and d&b until the cows come home.
Now in its sixth year and from humble beginning the small cow barn party that started with a few hundred people has organically grown to completely selling out last year and has now well and truly established itself as THE place to party on August bank holiday weekend.
Not far from Manchester, yet feeling like another world, Moovin takes place at the eco-friendly Whitebottom farm in the stunning countryside in Compstall. Through a magical canopy of trees, past lakes with waterfowl to greet you and with a breathtaking gorge welcoming you at the entrance, and that’s when the special weekend adventures really begin.
'At the bottom of a tree lined valley, a hay barn with a fat sound-system. A freewheeling crowd, no VIP red ropes, no hassle from the authorities, just music and good vibes' 90s free party? No. Moovin' festival, Manchester.' - GROOVE ARMADA - 2018
Whilst the line ups are big the capacity is purposely limited its something the promoters continue to believe in as to keep it friendly. This results in a compact and personal festival that is still raw and independent round the edges but all done with real love and care. This intimate affair has a counter cultural feel and a devotion to booking the freshest acts, as well as surprisingly big names for a festival of it size. It offers a laid back way to see or if you feel like it get up close and personal with your favourite acts, as well as discovering a diverse array of quirky bands, local talent, drumming outfits and deep digging DJs from across the musical spectrum. With walk about performers, fire shows, morning gong baths and yoga classes and a refreshing attention to details only touching the surface, there is a whole lot more to explore and a unique free spirited vibe at this party that you just cant quite put your finger on. Moovin Festival really is like no udder!
“I’ve been at Moovin Festival from its inception in one way or another and it’s great to see how its grown and still maintained a certain vibe that’s something very very special. 808 closed the barn stage in 2017 and was by far one of our highlights of the year.' ANDY BARKER 808 STATE
While Moovin 2020 will be the biggest yet in terms of headliners and weekend experiences, the personal feel is retained once again so for more adventures in the fields than ever before, make sure you head on down.
