First Acts Revealed for The Big Feastival 2014!

We are excited to announce Right Here, Right Now that DJ Fatboy Slim will headline Saturday night and jazz-pop legend Jamie Cullum will take to the main stage on Sunday. Also confirmed to appear is American R&B sensation Kelis, performing songs from her aptly-named new album ‘FOOD’.

Indie folk heroes Stornoway, family three-piece Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, acoustic star Jack Savoretti, reggae masters The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra and genre dodging Molotov Jukebox join Feastival favourites Norman Jay MBE, The Cuban Brothers and Duke to complete the first music line up announcement.

Jamie and Alex will be getting the festivities started early this year, with a full Friday programme added to the festival for the first time.  On hand to get everyone in the party mood, pop connoisseurs Guilty Pleasures will be hosting the main stage and special guest appearances from the incredible Bjorn Again and Fleetwood Bac.

It wouldn’t be The Big Feastival without the hottest chefs providing their top tips in live demos. Joining host Jamie Oliver on the AEG Big Kitchen stage are his culinary mentor Gennaro Contaldo and Le Gavroche Sous Chef Monica Galetti, fresh from the MasterChef: The Professionals kitchen. Heston Blumenthal’s protégé and Head Chef of the award-winning Dinner Ashley Palmer-Watts will also be plating up, alongside Two Star Michelin chef Nathan Outlaw, the inspirational Valentine Warner and spandex wearing, BBQ legend Christian Stevenson, AKA DJ BBQ.  Title Partner, AEG, will also present their AEG Cooking Club and in true Big Feastival style, there will be a whole host of gourmet food offerings to suit every taste with more details to be revealed soon.

We’re not saving all the fun for the grown-ups; with family entertainment including the brilliant Adam Henson’s Cotswolds Farm Park making a welcome return, giving kids of all ages the chance to meet some of their favourite furry and feathered friends. With the Little Dudes Den, the Big Top tent, a vintage funfair and some very special guests still to be announced, there is something for everyone at this year’s event.

“Three full days of great music, delicious food and good times for all the family – get involved before tickets are gone and it’s too late!” – Jamie Oliver
