Farr Festival 2016 Announces Ben UFO, Joy Orbison, Midland and more…
We can finally reveal the first wave of acts for Farr Festival, taking place in an uninhabited forest, just forty minutes outside of London, 14-16 July at Bygrave Woods in Hertfordshire.
Ben UFO, Joy Orbison, and Midland will play an exclusive six hour back-to-back set, one that is sure to open up your musical horizons, and it will weave electronic music in all shapes and forms — house, techno and bass.
Joining the musical dots between soul, hip-hop, house, Afro, Latin, electronica, jazz and beyond, we welcome Gilles Peterson for his Farr debut. Move D and Hunee return to the woods as well, bringing a myriad mosaic of sounds to the forest.
Paris-based DJ and producer, Jeremy Underground, will be unearthing the hidden treasures of house music, whilst Hamburg’s finest, Moomin, will bring his soulful brand of deep house to the woods. Helena Hauff is also set to bring an assault of acid, Chicago, electro and wave.
Paranoid London’s show consisting of concise hardware jams, basslines and taut drum machine rhythms are sure to get your feet shuffling, whilst Andrew Weatherall and Sean Johnston bring their wealth of knowledge to the forest, presenting ‘A Love From Outer Space’ with a special 8-hour set. Terry Farley ventures deep into the archives of acid house, celebrating 30-years of his legendary imprint Boy’s Own Records.
Detroit Swindle is headed back to Farr, bringing with them Frits Wentink and Nachtbraker for the Heist Recordings stage. Other Farr debuts are handed to some of the most exciting names to grace dance music including Max Cooper, ItaloJohnson, Funkineven, Maurice Fulton, Mike Dunn, Dorisburg, Olaf Stuut, Harri (Sub Club), Jane Fitz, Evan Baggs, Project Pablo, Francis Inferno Orchestra, Denis Sulta and London favourites Electric Minds.
The seventh edition of Farr Festival is our most ambitious to date and we cannot wait to party in the woods with you again this summer. We’ve got new areas to party in, stage hosts to showcase and an eclectic array of producers and selectors to get you dancing. With more announcements incoming, this is just the beginning.
