Again set in the Cranborne Chase Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty from July 18 to 21, the 29th Larmer Tree Festival has more than 30 acts.
London rapper and poet Kate Tempest tops the bill, performing the hip-hop of her acclaimed albums Everybody Down and Let Them Eat Chaos. Acoustic singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti features his new album Singing To Strangers on the main stage. Australia’s The Cat play their infectious and uplifting mash-up of alt-rock, jazz and ska.
Southport’s indie-rock veterans Gomez join the bill with electronica-infused blues. Completing the 2019 headliners is country music act The Shires and Scottish songstress KT Tunstall returning to Larmer Tree after her last appearance in 2013.
Let’s Eat Grandma, indie-electronica, groove-based jazz-electronica trio GoGo Penguin, classic-jazz-meets-beats Ezra Collective, and saxophonist Pete Wareham’s fun jazz-punk band Melt Yourself Down are also on the bill.
Flamingods , BC Camplight and The Wave Pictures, Tank and the Bangas add to the mix.
The first-ever Festival cinema tent shows everything from retro comedy classics to quirky indie gems for young festival-goers, as well as a chilled-out venue for everyone else. Due to popular demand, the much-loved Carnival returns – fiving audiences of all ages an unmissable opportunity to take part in the weekend’s action.
General Manager Lucy Babb said this is “definitely” one of their best line-ups so far.
“We are so excited to be back after the succes of last year,” she said.
“It’s a really diverse mix of headliners and we think our audience will absolutely love it.
“We are also working hard behind the scenes on some exciting additions for the festival, including our new cinema tent and the new carnival.
“It’s going to be a great year for Larmer Tree and we really can’t wait.”
