First Line-Up Announcement Is Here Farmers!

Feb 28 2012

It’s here Farmers! Among the first announced acts for Lounge on the Farm 2012 are the Mystery Jets, British hip hop pioneer Roots Manuva and rising star Emeli Sandé, who has a number one debut “Our Version Of Events” and like 2011 headliner Ellie Goulding before  her, an acclaimed BRIT’S Critics Choice Award under her belt, strengthening Lounge Of The Farm’s ethos of harbouring young British talent.

They will be joined by indie Liverpudlian trio The Wombats who are certain to provide the perfect summer soundtrack with their jittery and jangly indie pop, making them perfect Saturday night headliners.

Drum and Bass legend Goldie represents one of the first acts from the dance contingent and is sure to bring bass heavy beats to the farm along with reggae obsessive David Rodigan, who was recently given an MBE for his contribution to the genre over the years. The all new Hoe Down Dance Arena may well lose its roof when Papa Rodigan takes to the stage!

Legendary disco outfit Chic, whose discography spans four decades and includes such disco classics as ‘Everybody Dance’ and ‘Le Freak’, complete what is undoubtedly set to be a varied and carefully considered line up that will cater for adults and younger audiences alike. We are incredibly excited to welcome perhaps the greatest Disco band of all time to Merton Farm, as Nile Rodgers’ outfit have played perhaps the biggest role in forming the universally adored sound of Funk and Disco over the last 30 years. From tunes for Michael Jackson, Madonna and other Pop Royalty to his own smash hits such as “I Want Your Love”, this guy certainly knows how to play that funky music!

This will be the whole live performance from the full Chic band. With over 12 full band members in a variety of carnival dress and funky get-ups, this will certainly be a show to remember!

Lounge on the Farm was born in 2006 out of the desire to bring a unique slant to the UK summer festival market, and provide an event that promoted Kent and its many performers, musicians, traders and creative talents. It has been going from strength to strength ever since, winning “Best Line Up” at the 2009 UK Festival Awards and the “Sustainability” award in both 2008 and again in 2011 at the Greener Festival Awards. The gorgeous landscape of Merton Farm on which the festival is situated combines the very best elements for the ultimate British Summertime.
