Set in the Wiltshire countryside, the independently-run Summer Breeze Festival is a family-friendly event this July that’s intimate and inclusive for audience and musician alike.
Scottish singer-songwriter KT Tunstall will be headlining the main stage on Saturday; and funky soul rhythm and blues movers Vintage Trouble, hailing all the way from Los Angeles, will headline the main stage on Sunday.
Tickets are strictly limited to 2,000 – a big step up from its humble beginnings of 150 people in 2006 – but still with an intimate feel, say organisers with profits donated to charity. A variety of ticketing options are available ranging from £15 to £40 and children get in free.
The sixth Summer Breeze Festival will take place at Warren Farm, Liddington, near Swindon, on the 13th to 15th July.
Over 50 music acts to watch
Over the two days 50 acts will play across 3 stages including: The Musgraves, The Destroyers, Marcus Bonfanti, Wille and the Bandits, Gaz Brookfield, Ed Tudor Pole, Jake Morley, 360, Films of Colour, The 1930’s, The Running Club, The Blue Trees, The Paul Childs Band, Lazy Maybees, The Penny Red, Tom Staniford, Peoples String Foundation, Backbeat Soundsystem and Uncle Frank.
The line up is filled with amazing quality music acts from all over the UK, more acts will be announced over the next few months.
The festival will open to campers at 6pm on Friday 13th July. Two great party bands will play Friday evening on the bar stage to kick-start the weekend. The festival opens in earnest on Saturday 14th of July at midday (gates open at 10am) when there will be a full schedule of bands on the main and bar stages, plus acoustic sets in the Swinging TeaSpot going onto the wee small hours.
On Sunday the music kicks off at 11am; the event will finish at 8pm on the 15th of July. Camping is available for Friday and Saturday night.
Family fun and a children’s area
Family fun will be provided in a dedicated children’s area, including a new big fun art and craft tent where activities are offered at no cost on the day – all equipment is free to use and the kids get to take home everything they’ve made.
There will be puppet shows, junk building, pizza workshops, the silly hat stand, juggling ball making, ribbon skirts making and wearing, didgeridoo workshops, circus acts, silly games and even the creation of a giant mural. Basically, plenty to keep the kids amused, including the big kind.
Food and ale as well as music
Plus, you can enjoy more than quality music, with a variety of fine foods and a real ale bar. You can take a stroll around the vintage market with quirky festival traders, and chill out in a tranquil healing garden. The vintage tent will be holding tea parties, fashion shows, make-up and hair styling workshops, not-so-risqué burlesque lessons and a strictly adults-only late night burlesque performance!
