LeeFest presents The Neverland and wait for it at…. John Darlings Farm, (yes he, also, from Peter Pan). We are expecting  Mermaids, Lost Boys, Pirates, “Tink” Steam Punk and a wonderful immersive festival.

LeeFest ran for eight years, steadily building a great reputation for finding and bringing new acts to the festival scene. Many of those acts have gone on to great things, let’s think of Mo, Years & Years, Rae Morris, Young Farthers, Childhood and London Grammar to name but a few. Last year LeeFest had a break and has come back this year, better and bigger than ever, for its 10th anniversary.

The 2016 line up goes further than before in terms of big names and includes some already established acts like the great Lianne La Havas, Everything Everything, Circa Waves, Ghost Poet, We Are Scientists and Roots Manuva.

Of course it would not be LeeFest without Lee Denny and his team going out and finding a brilliant supporting line-up of future music stars and this year they include Shura, The 2 Bears, Little Simz, Spring King, Submotion Orchestra, Clean Cut Kid, Formation, Loyle Carner, VANT, Big Deal, The Big Moon and the fabulous Skinny Girl Diet.

LeeFest is not just about the music, it is about immersing yourself in the full experience of whimsical characters and realms, The Neverland redefines the very concept of a festival as it gears up for an unmissable weekend.

We have seen some of the behind the scenes pictures and it looks awesome with a world of unabashed entertainment to be found around every corner. Whether it’s strolling through the picturesque frames of the ambient forests in The Neverwoods, getting down and gritty at Skull Rock to a soundtrack of bass, grunge and punk, or diving into a kaleidoscopic dream of 80’s glam, cocktails and pristine clarity at Mermaids Lagoon, expect the unexpected as LeeFest Presents: The Neverland encourages all to never grow old.
