Lounge On The Farm Festival 2013 Returns With Seasick Steve & Soul Ii Soul On The Line-up Plus Many More.

The 8th instalment of Lounge on the Farm promises to be even more deliciously scrumptious than ever before. Heading it up will be a truly diverse and jaw-dropping line up of legends including Seasick Steve, supported by Lucy Rose, Soul II Soul with full band, and Caron Wheeler flying in from the States especially for us.

Lounge on the Farm's very own 'house band', The Dub Pistols, are back and so is one of the UK's top reggae bands Aswad, giving Soul II Soul a warm up guaranteed to have feet stomping.

We've let you in on the secrets of two of our days on the Main Stage, with more exciting main stage announcements to follow!

The FarmFolk is playing host to the harmonious sounds of Simone Felice, Treetop Flyers and Marika Hackman. The London House super-brand Connected make the trip down south to the Farm for 2013. Their Saturday night do features American super-producer MK and young upstarts No Artificial Colours. Meanwhile, South London party-starters Get Low make their third appearance, bringing everyone's favourite rave pensioner David Rodigan, The Heatwave and much more!
On The Farmhouse stage we'll have the best of bands and DJs - first announcements include DJ Format, DJ Alfredo (Cafe del Mar) and band Police Dog Hogan, made famous by member and columnist Tim Dowling of the Guardian.
Lounge has always been about more than just the music, and you don't have to spend all your time dancing in a field. It's everything else that makes Lounge so special - places you can escape to and blow your mind on the magical mayhem that is all around.

LOTF's most comfy and kooky hang out, The Playhouse, will once again welcome the weird, the wonderful, the surreal and the downright absurd. From sunrise until the early hours, revellers will find themselves immersed in a unique brand of high octane, leftfield entertainment. Expect to see side splitting stand-up, variety performances, circus, contemporary burlesque, captivating spoken word, and wild, dark and heartfelt music from the best-loved musicians of the cabaret scene.
All this will be hosted by The Boom Bang Club, with comedy from TV favourites Stephen K Amos and Tony Law, and late night soirees from Patty Plinko and Tankus the Henge. We're also proud to announce that Roots Manuva and Rob da Bank favourite Kate Tempest will head up Spoken Word curated by Tongue Fu, one of London's liveliest spoken word nights. It's poetry, but not as you know it.
Kids won't be disappointed either, with The Science Museum, Shlomo Beatbox Adventure, Chatback Kids Comedy Club, NCT Sensory Room, Bushcraft and headliner to be announced later!
Lounge on the Farm was the first festival in the world to put food in the limelight alongside the music. This is grass-roots and personal cooking of an exceptional standard, proudly championing seasonal, local produce and low food miles. Expect lovingly crafted and carefully refined recipes demonstrated by a host of critically acclaimed chefs in our Kitchen Theatre.
With the site revamped and redressed, expect to get a little lost in its newly discovered nooks and crannies, all the better for escaping into. We've got a Victorian funfair in association with The Dreamland Trust; a Spa and Create area in amongst The Orchards where you can have a Swedish massage or learn a new skill depending on your mood; and secret restaurants far from the madding crowd. Last year's big hitter, the Roller Disco, is back along with Lounge favourite The Groovy Movie Solar Cinema, Auntie Nora's Jumble Sale, Vintage Market, and much, much more besides!
