You remember when I said I’m always in the festival spirit but I’m just too lazy to plan it? Well something has come along to change all that.
Festibelly is a hidden gem on the British EDM festival calendar. Situated in the picturesque setting of New Forest in Hampshire, the discreet festival boasts an eclectic line up of cutting edge musicians from all colors of the musical spectrum, united in their mission to bring really good music to the masses. It’s all going down over the August bank holiday weekend in a sprawling forest—free from corporate sponsorship of any kind.
Sounds great right? Well it gets even better, because this year’s line up includes a mixture hotly tipped and already established acts such as Gold Panda, Rob Da Bank, Man Like Me, Clock Opera, Fossil Collective, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Labyrinth Ear, Ragga Twins and even Mr. Nice himself, Howard Marks.
Not to mention a myriad of other attractions to keep you entertained till the early hours of the morning like a Terrapin Studio, Roller Disco and exhibitions like Massive in China and Autumn Shift that together form a kaleidoscope of themes from the psychedelic to the gypsy to dirty disco, wrong cabaret, circus performance, wonky game shows, cosy cafés, poetry, painting and everything in between.
Did I mention that the tickets are really cheap too? Well they are! You can grab them here. For the up-and-coming DJs out there, there's a DJ competition going on too, you can win a slot at the festival.
