This year we’ve opened up the festival to a group of audiophiles and artists from Suma Sound and Tangy Events. Together we have curated The Lemon Lounge – a new area coming to the festival this year comprising of a zesty big top tent and geodome workshop area.

The lounge will house the crews’ hand build sound system, with a music program of DJs focussing on sound system music. Daily open deck sessions will also invite everyone to come spin some tunes. Programmed DJs will then take us through until nightfall, giving an opportunity for DJs from the Shack and the Kite Bar to come and play an alternative set, along with the crew’s own esteemed wax collectors.

A selection of workshops and talks will take place in a lovingly crafted coppiced willow dome, from pottery to jam making and impromptu talks.

There might be a few acoustic late night surprises too… Come and get lemon with us and find out!

Flamingods House Party

We're super excited to be teaming up with The House of St. Barnabas to throw a free party with some heavyweight DJs in support of The House of St. Barnabas Charity. 

Some background on HOSB:

The House of St Barnabas is a charity pledging to break the cycle of homelessness and social exclusion in London. They run a social enterprise, a not-for-profit members’ club, to help the people they support back into lasting paid work. Their Employment Academy offers accredited qualifications, on-site work experience, real job opportunities and mentoring. The House of St Barnabas are seeking to redefine the notion of a members’ club, to challenge stereotypes around the idea of exclusivity and to create a different kind of membership. The club is a creative, socially conscious and vibrant space.

As always, you know what to expect from us: Psychedelic grooves, Global exotica from Bollywood to Turkish disco, Polish jazz, Bulgarian funk and everything in between.
