Excitement mounting for The Big Feastival
By David Wood
Where: Alex James's Farm, Kingham, the Cotswolds
When: Friday, August 23, to Sunday, August 25
There's just a few days to this year's Big Feastival, the weather forecast is sunny and there aren't many tickets left!
With music from the UK's biggest artists, Michelin star chefs live on stage, award-winning street food and an exciting programme of family entertainment, The Big Feastival once again has something for everyone.
The Big Feastival will be kicking off with a belter of a start thanks to none other than the platinum selling Rudimental with their Friday night DJ set.
The party continues on Saturday night with Grammy Award winner Jess Glynne taking centre stage. The singer-songwriter made history becoming the first British female solo artist to achieve seven No.1 singles in the UK when her hit I'll Be There hit top spot last summer.
The festival will come to an epic close on Sunday night with one of the most extraordinary acts in British music, Elbow. Over 20 years and seven studio albums, Elbow have achieved many of the accolades that mark out a successful band, three Ivor Novellos, a Mercury Music Prize, a BRIT award for Best British Band.
The weekend will also feature singer-songwriter Lewis Capaldi fresh from his breakthrough hit Someone You Loved and indie-rock band The Zutons who shot to fame with the original Valerie, and Jonas Blue.
Along with Jade Bird, Nina Nesbitt, Fun Lovin' Criminals, The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, DJ Luck & MC Neat and Duke, Feastival veterans The Cuban Brothers will also be adding their distinctive blend of music, comedy and dancing entertainment.
The Big Feastival will also host an incredible line-up of Britain's most respected chefs. Raymond Blanc OBE will be showcasing the bold and innovative cooking, which has seen him retain his two Michelin stars for an astounding 34 years.
National treasure Prue Leith CBE will be sharing the culinary wisdom that has seen the restaurateur and caterer become one of the UK's most renowned food personalities.
Host Alex James said: "This is our eighth year and our best line-up to date. Feastival continues to expand, evolve and get better every summer and we've got more new tricks, surprises and festival firsts up our sleeves for this August."
Dedicated to festival fun for the whole family, The Big Feastival will ensure kids are entertained from start to finish. Little festival-goers can enjoy live entertainment from children's TV megastar Justin Fletcher, Paw Patrol's Chase & Marshall and Peppa Pig and George over the three-day extravaganza.
Children of all ages can try out tree climbing, visit Adam Henson's Cotswold Farm Park, take part in workshops with the Royal Shakespeare Company, join the Royal Albert Hall band, partake in the Village Green games or take a spin around the Vintage Fun Fair, amongst much more.
