Lovely Reviews

Jul 15 2011

We have been receiving some amiable reviews and would love for you to have a read!

Festival Kidz – 9/10

The line up was good with a good mix of different types of music to suit different tastes, comedy and theatre, not that we got to see much of it as the kids were loving the ‘little lounge’. The kids workshops in there were great, some of the activities included, tile painting, bandana making, science experiments, badge making, circus workshops, story telling, magicians, making costumes for a parade that took place on Sunday, clay modelling, dressing up, the list goes on. Overall brilliant, well thought out activities for kids and the grown ups also enjoyed it (especially the circus skills). Also solar cinema was great along with the digital fun fair!!

Music News – 5*

Merton Farm, Canterbury is the idyllic setting for one of the gems of the now cramped British festival season. Tucked away in the garden of England and just a short drive away from the capital, LOTF offers a great alternative to the bigger festivals by offering the best bits on a compact easy to navigate site.

This year’s line-up really did have something for everyone. From headliners as diverse as The Streets, Ellie Goulding and Echo and the Bunnymen to the new music of Braids and blissed out country folk of Smoke Fairies, the music programme was exceptional. Doubling up on the capacity for 2011 saw the introduction of a new main stage which freed up the cowshed (yes, a real cowshed) to be used as the new dance arena. Headlined by Radio 1’s Annie Mac on Friday the shed also featured big names in breaks, dubstep and drum n bass. Other music was catered for on the Sheep Dip, Farm Folk and Meadows stages.

The festival has been running for six years and has grown from 1,000 to 10,000 people in that time.

The Streets lead singer, Mike Skinner, performed OMG for one of the last times after announcing earlier this year that he’s to stop recording with the group.
He tried to encourage the crowd to rename the festival Lunge On The Farm and admitted he’d tried every one of the food stalls telling the crowd “burritos are the best”.

Emma Maton, 24 from Chestfield, Kent said: “It’s great to have these big names in Canterbury. Everyone looks forward to Lounge all year round.”
