Festival season is upon us and, if you haven’t already, the time is fast approaching to get those important decisions locked down. For us at Magnetic, it’s the intimate festivals that are really something to focus on and that goes for boutique festival Farr, one of the more unassuming festivals on the grid, it boasts a lineup that some established festivals could only dream of.
