LeeFest: The Neverland 2017, 10-12th August - 10 reasons to join us in the field this year

    LeeFest: The Neverland returns on 10th-12th August 2017 and we can't wait to party with you. Here are some of the reasons we believe that 2017 will be the biggest and best yet.


    "Like a Mini Glastonbury" - BBC Radio 1

    Didn't make it to sunny Glasto 2017? Radio 1 have likened LeeFest to the grass-roots early days of Glastonbury. Both stemming from an impromtu party bringing together likeminded people, going on to become award-winning established festivals.

    New Music, New Artists, New Ideas

    We invest heavily in new music, new artists, new ideas. This requires us to take a lot of risks with the festival budget but we believe that new ideas need a lot of support and encouragement; we stand to benefit from both the successes and the failures.

    Join a tribe - Pirates, Mermaids, Lost Boys

    The Neverland is home to 3 realms - The Neverwoods, Mermaids Lagoon and Skull Ridge. Here you'll find 3 tribes to join. Pledge your allegiance and get in character. (We'll have a merch and costume area for you to up your character game once onsite too).

    Get flocked by 200 flamingoes!

    News is 200 flamingoes have arrived for 2017. Find them in the Neverwoods lake - don't say we don't make Insta-worthy sets for you!

    Parties hosted by Jungle, Percolate, Regression Sessions, Wonderland, CTFest & more.

    This year we're super excited to be working with some massive promotors to ensure the parties run late into the night and provide you with the best tunes possible. Jungle will be bringing their 'Jungle Presents' takeover to the Wondersands Beach on Saturday.

    Play games on the Wondersands Beach

    LeeFest has become known for the sun-drenched Wondersands Beach venue. By day you'll jump into glitter wrestling, paint fights and nostalgic games - by night, wild parties and djs commence.

    "An Unpretentious Party Vibe" - The Guardian & "The Ultimate Party" - NME

    Our favourite ever quote about the festival was when The Guardian described it as “A perfect, unpretentious party vibe’. LeeFest is a chance to just party with your fellow wonderful humans. Embrace it. Embrace each other.

    Pull some shapes and bring the sass at 'Rainbow' Drag Bar

    As the sun goes down, join the party at 'Rainbow' in Mermaids Lagoon. Rainbow is LeeFest's resident drag bar and home to some of the best movers and shakers on site. Get those knees wobbling (as Mr Scruff would say).

    Meet Awesome People

    LeeFest is a growing community of awesome people who are motivated to make things happen for their own creative satisfaction and/or for others’ enjoyment. The best bit of feedback we receive each year is that it feels like one big family by the end of the weekend :)

    Never Grow Old

    So many people seem to stop growing because they grow old. We believe that festivals can be life changing experiences, because of the sense of curiosity and wonder they inspire with anyone attending.
