Fieldtrip Festival coming to Addingham
11:09am Monday 16th June 2014 in Local news
Music and arts will take a field trip to Wharfedale this August as a three-day festival sets up camp on Addingham Moorside.
Independently organised festival, Fieldtrip, will take place in the panoramic green location from August 15 to 17.
This compact and bijou affair focuses on fun and participation, taking inspiration from the promoters world festival travels, and distils them into one beautifully boutique weekend.
There will be cider stalls, a hand-picked selection of amazing street food, live comedy and kamikaze karaoke, mud wrestling and unique little habitats to play in, craft stalls and acrobats as well as rap battles, a secret cinema and oodles of local real ales from Yorkshire breweries.
Fieldtrip will be an intimate, 1,500 capacity camping soiree, with the emphasis firmly on attention to detail, with a wide variety of live and electronic music, spread across seven specially designed arenas.
Each arena will have its own themed environment, to make it a much more inclusive and magical experience.
Musical genres include drum n bass, dubstep, funk, garage, house, psy/goaTrance, reggae, soul, and techno.
There will be plenty of participatory games, performance artists, no expense spared production and myriad other little flourishes to ensure Fieldtrip really is a feel good weekend that harks back to a simpler, more fun and engaging time before the cooperate world took over.
As well as a lovingly hand-picked selection of local musicians, brands, DJs and performers, there will be a smattering of international talent to really finish the festival in style.
The music ethos is about quality, not what’s hot at the minute.
Organisers said: "We want people to leave the festival with a new favourite band, or DJ. Fieldtrip is a fun-filled, friendly affair that brings together the best creative and cultural offerings Leeds has to offer and does so with love, understanding and a welcoming smile on its face. This is one summer trip you don’t want to miss."
Weekend camping tickets start at £75. Visit fieldtripfestival.co.uk for more information and tickets.
