Not a lot I can say that hasn’t already been said about one of the most laid-back, thought-provoking and enjoyable festivals in Kent…
A great place to meet old friends and new over an elderflower cider and catch some of the incredible line-up. My 2017 highlights: Lemn Sissay, Shane Koyczan, Dizraeli and, yes, the 3 Half Pints!
It was a pleasure to work with Beth, Raphael and the team again – and lovely to see some of my 2016 shots gracing this year’s programme. Roll on 2018.
3 Half Pints
It really was funny…

Emily Hennessey – up the creek without a paddle
That’s the problem with this generation – always on their bloody phones…
Rob and Micah play into the night
That’s all folks.
So it was that time of year again – a new one-day format for the last Lounge (on Merton Farm, at least). Still loads to do and somehow cram it all into 18 hours and take some photos.
My personal highlights were jiving with missuseb to Si Cranstoun, going bonkers to DJ Yoda and the Trans Siberian Marching Band, the usual frollicks at the Farmhouse with Coco and the Butterfields, John Kye was electrifying in the day’s lowest-key performance and The Pajama Men were very, very funny. There was a bit of rock’n’roll glamour with helicopter departures, I had a chance to get up close (but not-so-personal) with Huey of the Fun Lovin’ Criminals and then there was familiar mayhem that a camera attracts in the Farmhouse after dark (those pictures will NOT be appearing here, or anywhere else!) and my God, did you get to try that Indian food?!?
Hope you all had a great time, thanks to Jamie and the team, what does 2015 have in store? 10 year LOTF anniversary party over three days in a new location. Can’t wait.
Mr Squirl again.
