Farmfest is run by a collective of friends, with and for the local community as a non-corporate and sponsor free event, providing a platform for emerging and local artists while offering genre defying line-ups, at an affordable price. With a strong reputation for great music, it was nominated for Best Line-Up at the UK Festival Awards 2017. Inspired by a love of culture and our Somerset surroundings, Farmfest emerged twelve years ago from a close group of friends that wanted to celebrate two of the very best things life has to offer – music and friendship. So we set about organising a party in a field. These days our field is home to seven music venues, plus a host of other spaces and delights offering anything from comedy to kiddies’ discos, chilltime workshops to theatrical wig-outs. We aim to create the most vibrant and inclusive small festival and party experience in the UK. Family and friends have joined us at every step along the way; they’ve helped us to dream up, source, build and repurpose most of what makes up Farmfest, and we strive to reuse as much as we can, source consciously and locally as we evolve. It all helps keep our costs, our footprint and ticket prices down. Giving back also means more than just a good footprint and a good party; donating to charities close to our hearts is a vital part of the festival’s ethos, raising over £5,000 for different groups together each year.
