Festival Guide: Barn on the Farm

Back for it’s 7th year, Barn on the Farm is set on the outskirts of the Gloucester on the charming site of Over Farm amongst the chickens, pigs and inquisitive ostriches. It does away with all the excess of larger festivals and keeps things simple with music at its core.

Spread over 3 small stages (The Barn, Outside and Main), there is a real family atmosphere across the site. Everyone is very laid back and it’s not uncommon to see the artists relaxing and mingling in the crowd as they check out other bands.

Barn on the Farm has always given the opportunity for upcoming artists to showcase their talent, with the likes of Ed Sheeran, James Bay, Jack Garratt passing through the barn gates before exploding nationally. These artists showing how much love they have for this independent festival by all coming back subsequent years to headline.
