Home is where great music is

Home Farm Fest

Charity festival now in its 12th year

This year the Home Farm Charity Music Festival celebrates its 12th anniversary.

Taking place at Home Farm in Chilthorne Domer, Somerset, the festival has grown considerably since its early days and what was once a one-day festival with one stage and a few people camping in the main field is now a three-day festival with six stages and designated camping fields.

More than 300 volunteers and helpers give their time to take part in the event, whether it’s on the stage, serving tea, stewarding around the site or selling the Home Farm Fest merchandise... and all the amazing music is played free by the musicians, each donating their time and enthusiasm to the School In A Bag charity, which helps vulnerable and disaster-affected children throughout the world by providing school bags filled with resources that will enable them to write, draw, colour, calculate, express themselves and above all learn.

The music takes place across six stages: the Domer, Dutch Barn, Lloyd Lounge, Folkroom, Avant Garde and Anderson Dance Tent.

Headlining the Domer stage on Friday is Scoot, with Crimson On Silver topping the bill on Saturday and Cuba Libra on Sunday.

The Dutch Barn is headlined on Friday by Livewired, on Saturday by Snakebyte and on Sunday by The Rosa Gray Band.

Headliners in the Lloyd Lounge include Hundred Days, The Renegades and Roughcut Blues; while the Folkroom includes lots of brilliant artists who play under the Folkroom Records label based in London.

The Avant Garde stage sees a variety of things going on from fantastic acoustic sets to children's discos, children's cinema, silent discos, burlesque dancing and even the England v Scotland World Cup qualifier on Saturday; while the Anderson Dance Tent welcomes acts such as Tyme It, Jack Britten, Frazer Mitchell, Cartridge, Funky Onion, Decimal 5, Dub Majesty, Ditto, Connor Watling, Kartel, and Reece.

There is also a great children's area bustling with activities and plenty more family fun throughout the weekend.
