Round up the masses, dig out your tent and get yourself to the Instagram-worthy, beautiful Bygrave Woods in Hertfordshire, just thirty minutes outside London. Get away from the Call Me Caitlyn tabloids and dance till the early hours on July 16th-18th, where Farr Festival takes place bringing you the most mouth watering electronic artists.
Since 2006, Farr Festival has been providing elite music for the breath-taking atmosphere and this year is no different. DJ Koze brings his loose feeling techno music, he could stomp out anything, so be prepared for something magical. Being an indie producer, Erol Alkan knows exactly what key aspects are to be perfected to create a cool mix. Fashionista Becca D was signed up as one of the new presenters of MTV in 2012 and will be bringing her reggae mixes to dance to the early hours to. DJ duo Âme, Midland and Prosumer, Odyssey and more will also be added to the mix that weekend.
When you’re Farr Farr away (like what I did there?) from home comforts, such as a bed, it could be worth paying a little extra for a luxury tipi, if you fancy living like an modern day Indian for the weekend. They have a shower area and electricity for your phone/ straightener/ whatever electronic device you can’t live without and cushions to rest your poor feet when you’ve been working them hard till 6am on the dance floor. But it is a festival, so really you should be carting your Dads brothers two-man tent for four of you, go on, I dare you.
The food is so good at Farr Festival, it deserves its own paragraph. Cereal Killers provide healthy breakfasts such as granola and super food shots, keeping you on form all weekend. Voodoo Rays bring pizza, pizza and more pizza to the festival. It’s been said they do pretty good cocktails too. There is also a crepe stall, Moroccan food and even a milkshake bar and so many more.
There are 500 full weekend tickets left and for £99, if you’re not busy, you should go. There are also individual day and night ticket for £45 each. No excuses people.
