The team behind the Lake District’s Kendal Calling festival has announced details of Forgotten Fields, a new 4,000-capacity festival to be held at Eridge Deer Park in Sussex.
Super Furry Animals, Basement Jaxx and The Levellers will headline the event from August 7-9.
British Sea Power played the first ever Kendal Calling and will perform at the inaugural Forgotten Fields alongside The Horrors, De La Soul, Public Service Broadcasting, Augustines, DJ Yoda, and Slamboree, with many more acts still to be announced across the two main stages.
Three other stages will provide a different musical focus. The Gypsy Disco will be a must-visit for fans of Ska, Balkan, Swing and immersive theatre, whilst the House Party stage will host comedy. Plus, The Horizons stage will host new acts, the type of acts you’ll expect to see storming up the festival bills in years to come.
Other acts performing include Skinny Lister, CoCo and the Butterfields, Beans on Toast, Keston Cobblers Club, Fickle Friends, Tom Williams, Sam Brookes, Get Inuit, Lazy Habits, Phoria, Too Many T’s, Will Varley, Jacko Hooper, Cocos Lovers, Wooden Arms, Time for T, Island Cassettes, Native People, First Family, Abi Wade, Skies, MOK, Molly Warburton, Ed Prosek, Gang, Glass City Vice, Veludo Planes, Realms, The Beautiful Word, Half Crown, Garden Heart, Fish Tank, The DuBarrys, Flags, Eden Circle, and The Common Tongues.
Forgotten Fields is suitable for families and revellers alike, with The Prickleback Urchin Kids Area built for the younger party animals in your group and The Late Night Cinema sitting as the ideal alternative to the wealth of musical options available across the site.
Three other stages will provide a different musical focus, with the Gypsy Disco featuring ska, Balkan, swing and immersive theatre, the House Party stage hosting comedy and The Horizons stage showcasing new artists.
Tickets prices will start at £90 for early bird tickets, and go on sale at 9am on Friday 27th March.
The new event for 4,000 attendees will feature firm festival favourites, fine ales, world cuisine and a multitude of bespoke accommodation options. There will also be extravagant site art, festival games, fancy dress frolics, boutique stalls and camp fire tales all set in the picturesque English Countryside.
