From humble origins, in a few short years, Lakefest’s evolution to becoming one of the best small-medium festivals in the country is a stunning achievement. Lakefest just gets better. The festival itself is a bit of a multi-media extravaganza, not only is there genuinely something musically to suit all tastes and genres, from Roots Reggae, to Rock and Soul, to a thumping EDM scene, but there is spoken word, comedy, theatre, some brilliant ‘In Conversation With’ sessions, funfairs, a full kids programme and circus skills, workshops, Healing Fields, half a dozen stages, loads of bars, eateries and stalls. For an event of around 12,000 happy souls, Lakefest punches way above its weight in the sheer diversity and quality of its offerings.
