The weekend of wonder that is Lakefest returns to the Herefordshire fields 8th-11th August 2019.
Some festivals walk the walk, whilst others just talk it. Lakefest absolutely nails it and is right up there with the very best of small-medium festivals in the UK. The electric atmosphere and that sense of community as soon as you pass through its hallowed portals can be all rather overpowering. It’s a rare and beautiful thing. Lakefest stamps its own indelible mark on everything a great festival should be.
Our Festivals For All reviewers simply adore Lakefest. Go get a cuppatea and take a read of FFA’s Lakefest 2018 Review for just a flavour of the absolutely cracking party that awaits at Lakefest.
This year’s line-up is once again excellent, with the likes of James, Kaiser Chiefs, and Happy Mondays gracing the bill, and there are oodles of non-music goodies too; John Robb hosting the Spoken Word events, loads of workshops, experiences, mindfulness malarkey, and simply loads for the kids of all ages. Don’t forget the terrific late-night dance and cabaret scene, and the frankly infamous Lakefest Silent Disco, and the… you get the picture.
The facilities and organisation are on the button, and trust us here, there is really nothing not to like. But what sets it all apart? It’s the VIBE. The Buzz. Lakefest is a family – the shared community spirit and oneness of its people can take the breath away. In a country descending into madness, Lakefest blows it all away to prove our commonality is stronger than what divides us. FFA finds it all rather special.
Tickets are on final release now - so be quick! Lakefest is one hell of good time – so come join the family.
