Best of July: Farr Festival, Hertfordshire, 16-18 July 2015

Farr Festival has gathered an eclectic mix of must-see musical acts this year for its sixth instalment, maintaining its reputation for booking the most influential and creative artists of recent times. Time and time again, promoters and organisers sacrifice their integrity for a huge and undeniably alluring profits. Farr, even under a new management, have resisted this temptation. The festival returns aiming to retain all the charm, magic and intimacy that it started out with.

The festival kicks off on Thursday 16 July 2015, in beautiful county of Hertfordshire. With a consistently enticing line-up, including headliners DJ Koze, Heidi, Prosumer, Âme, Midland, Leon Vynehall and Erol Alkan, the amount of good music played over its three-day duration is going to be hard to beat. Romare will get the party started at the Corsica village stage along with Arnaldo and Seb Wildblood. Friday will see big names such as Heidi, Waze and Odyssey, Erol Alkan, Roman Flugel, Tom Trago and Citizenn. The Saturday line up brings together DJ Koze, Ame, Prosumer, Hunee, Toddla T, Benny Page, Midland, Medlar, Gerd Janson and Leon Vynehall.
