Artists will take to the stage for a music festival in the idyllic setting of Moonhenge, Woodwalton.

The focal point for the event will be the giant wooden structure at Red House Farm, where fans of folk and alternative rock can enjoy a day of entertainment.

Acts include Béla Takes Chase, whose sound is reminiscent of London Grammar and Beach House, Oxford folk songwriter Adam Barnes, and indie, rap, and jazz fusion group Cheshire & the Cat.

Andy the Storyteller will also return to Barnfest for a late night performance, complete with tales of genies, giants, unicorns, and talking raindrops.

Jamie Breacker, founder of the event, said: “We have a superb line-up of performers coming from all over the UK to perform for us this year and the atmosphere should be great.

“From its beginnings as a drunken conversation attempting to bring some live music to a barn party, it has evolved dramatically.

Now, in our second year, we have confirmed some brilliant artists, gained some new toys and have a couple of tricks up our sleeve.

“This year Barnfest promises to be bigger and better than ever, even though there is no barn.”

INFORMATION: The campsite will open at 11.30am on Sunday, August 24, and close at 1.30pm on Monday, August 25. Music will run between 1pm-10.30pm on Sunday. Tickets cost £15 from www.thebarnfest.co.uk.
