We don’t call it the ‘ultimate music and foodie weekender’ for nothing, read on to see the latest line up of special guests joining us on the farm this 31 August and 1 September!
Joining Basement Jaxx and Rizzle Kicks to complete the Saturday night line-up is soul singer and winner of iTunes Album of the Year 2012, the incredible Lianne La Havas.
His three solo albums sold over 400,000 copies worldwide and he won our hearts in Celebrity Big Brother 2002. Previewing songs from his new album and performing classic crowd-pleasers, Take That’s Mark Owen will take to the stage on Sunday.
Saturday will also see performances from Norwegian sensation Bernhoft and classic 90’s power pop rock trio Dodgy. Sunday festival-goers can look forward to Laurence Fox showcasing his acoustic talents and an infectious summer set from London rockers The Milk.
Chart topping music acts aside, The Big Feastival features an incredible selection of the UK’s finest food producers and a stellar bill of the nation’s top chefs on the Electrolux Big Kitchen stage.
Bolstering the chef-line up, which includes Jamie Oliver, Gennaro Contaldo and Valentine Warner, is star of TV’s ‘The Little Paris Kitchen’ Rachel Khoo, Scotland’s youngest Michelin-starred chef Tom Kitchin, former Roux Scholar and Bocuse d’Or entrant Simon Hulstone and young guns Jonray and Peter Sanchez Iglesias from Bristol’s boundary pushing Casamia restaurant.
Offering a fun-filled festival experience for all ages, The Big Feastival will play host to children’s TV favourite (and ours), BAFTA award-winner and MBE recipient, Justin Fletcher from CBeebies. He’ll appear on the main stage for a very special Sunday afternoon live performance of his biggest hits. You know the words; get ready to sing-along with your Hands Up!
