A welcome return to Yalding for more of the vicar’s shenanigans – all under the relentless July sun.
Great performances from headliners Starsailor and Fun Lovin’ Criminals, as well as Cast, Sex Pissed Dolls and One Eyed Jacks, while the likes of Norman Jay, Nightmares on Wax and PBR Streetgang rocked the dance tent.
Stephen K Amos provided one of the highlights for me – a blistering 60 minute turn in an over-capacity and over-heated comedy tent. We salute you, sir.
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.
A regular outing to Merton Farm – a must in every event calendar – and great to be photographing on behalf of the Lounge guys this year.
If you like your festivals laid back and very chilled then I highly recommend Lounge On The Farm (top tip: get the early bird tickets while you can!)
