The Honeyfest festival, held in spring, kick starts the music festival calendar each year as it is the first of the major out-door music festivals of the year. It taps into the spirit of spring and takes place in the heart of the ancient Wiltshire countryside.
A magical one-day, 3,500 capacity event set in an ancient area steeped in folklore, crop circles and heritage, last year’s inaugural Honeyfest hosted a line-up of high calibre artists that wouldn’t normally be seen in such an intimate festival setting including Laura Marling, Damien Rice, Magic Numbers & Dry the River.
Launching with a BBC documentary broadcast about the making of Honeyfest & it has close links with the community after coming into fruition to rejuvenate village life as part of the BBC and National Lottery’s Village SOS project. The 2012 event will see Honeyfest flourish on a new site, supporting local artists and bringing a Spring-time celebration like no other.
DATES: April 14th, 2012.
