Down on the Farm Festival @ Abbeydore

Down on the Farm, a three day music festival, returns to Abbey Dore.

There will be more than 25 acts on two stages at the family friendly festival where you can enjoy a range of musical styles including rock, ska, Blues, folk, and punk.

For fans of acoustic music there will be the all acoustic Garden Stage.

From the organisers: "There will be locally sourced food and drink at proper prices, not silly festival ones and both stages are under cover so you don't need to fear the summer downpours. There's ample camping and parking on site - free with your weekend ticket."

Confirmed for the Saturday night are Pablo Alto, a Garage psych band and have been compared to Hawkwind, The Cure, Sonic Youth and The Stooges. They have a 90s Manchester sound to them similar to Chameleons and Joy Division but blended with their own style. 

Also confirmed are Eddie and The Hot Rods, Raptor (from Leominster), Alvin & The Angry Barrels (who describe themselves as Rag Tag, 3 Chord, Ska Specialists), Sweet Talk (young, local Blues band), Brassick (from Ledbury), and Mexicola (risen from the ashes of Artstar to continue the path of making mystical, cool indie music.)

Early bird discounted tickets are available until May 31.

Day tickets and full priced weekenders will be available from June 1.
