Feriocious Dog

What a week that was!

Now the dust has settled (literally) and the fields are empty we thought we’d best say a few words… 52 weeks of planning and we couldn’t have felt more proud of what we achieved. Standing on that stage to witness a sell out crowd go nuts, dancing and cheering for more is something that will […]

The Leylines

Sat in a field with The Leylines!

The Leylines drew such a crowd last year that the Russshuntel stage could barely hold them, so we’re bringing them back this year to see if they’re a match for our famous rotating stage.  We caught up with vocalist Steve Mitchell…   FPF: Congratulations on the recent release of your album ‘Along the Old Straight Track’.  You […]
