First wave of acts revealed for Farmfest 2021

Posted on: 26 May 2021

Katy J Pearson, Run Logan Run and Beak> are among a broad selection of Bristol acts on the programme.


A full lineup has been confirmed for the eagerly-anticipated 2021 edition of Farmfest, with another huge two-day celebration of music, arts, poetry and much more taking in Somerset place on 30 & 31 July.


Returning after last year's festival was put on hold due to the coronavirus crisis, Farmfest 2021 is set to showcase a broad spectrum of live music and DJ sets from an extensive lineup of world-renowned artists.


Full camping tickets for Farmfest 2021 are available now and can be found here.



One of the Westcountry's best-loved annual festivals (perhaps just falling short of the world's biggest, which resides nearby), Farmfest proudly bring together some of the finest established and emerging artists on offer year in, year out.


Spanning everything from jazz and folk to electronic, indie, world music and much, much more, this year's lineup of more than 100 musical acts represents one of the festival's most ambitious to date.

This year's Farmfest will also feature an array of forward-thinking electronic artists to get attendees moving once the sun's gone down, with breakout DJ & producer Ross From Friends, celebrated party starter Dan Shake and legendary radio host and soundsystem DJ Norman Jay set to appear.


Bristol is, once again, heavily represented on the electronic lineup, which features prolific DJ and Mix Nights tutor Danielle, revered promoters Bitch, Please! and independent Stokes Croft station 1020 Radio.


Alongside this year's musical offering is another diverse selection of workshops and activities across the two days, as the festival manages to combine everything from early morning workouts to spoken word performances and live comedy.


Tickets to Farmfest 2021, taking place in Bruton, Somerset on Friday 30 and Saturday 31 July, start at just £99 for a full camping pass, with discounted and free tickets for teens and under-13s respectively.
