Let’s get straight to the point: Farmer Phil’s Festival IS GOING AHEAD in 2021!
It’s been a rubbish, gruelling 18 months and after having to take the difficult decision to postpone last year’s event, one of the main things keeping all of us on the festival team going has been the beacon of August 2021 providing a chance to get together with you all again.
We won’t lie to you – there have been times where we’ve doubted lockdown restrictions would be lifted to the extent the festival could go ahead. But, comfortable in the knowledge we could ready the festival site with a week’s notice, we’ve held our nerve and with the Prime Minister’s recent announcement confirming that restrictions would be lifted as planned on 19 July (pending final confirmation a week beforehand), we are delighted to confirm that this year’s Farmer Phil’s Festival will be going ahead in Ratlinghope as planned.
Who is playing?
We’ve received a lot of questions about the line-up. We have done our upmost to rebook every single artist originally confirmed for 2020 and we plan to unveil an updated poster in the coming days. However, we can announce the following artists will be joining us in the Shropshire Hills next month:
T’Pau, Dr & The Medics, SkaBurst, Piston, Big Joe Bone, The Endings, Captain Stingray, One Eyed God, Captain Accident and our usual festival closer Wayne Martin.
We’ve got loads more yet to announce so please keep tabs on our social media channels for further updates.
Spread the word
And while we’re on the subject of social media, we have a small favour to ask each of you. If you love Farmer Phil’s Festival as much as we enjoy putting it on for you every year (governmental restrictions permitting!), we hope you won’t mind helping to spread the word that there is an awesome little festival taking place in August in the beautiful Shropshire Hills and encouraging people to geddon moi land! A quick share of a post on Facebook makes a huge difference and with your help we can make it a truly memorable return to festival life.
How do I get my ticket?
We can’t wait to see you all again.
