The Hamswell Festival will be returning for its 11th and final year at their original location later this month, with the line-up including a variety of over 30 acts to enjoy.
The Hamswell Festival is an independently run, micro festival set in a valley between Bath and Bristol.
This years line-up includes headliners Scratch Perverts alongside DJ Vadim, Martin Flex, Se7en Deadly Breaks, The Push And Concrete Disco.
Taking place from Friday 19th – Sunday 21st August, this year for their farewell to the valley, the theme is Space Oddity, their very own final frontier and a tip of the hat to Bowie.
With a limited capacity of 500, the Hamswell Crew programmes over 30 acts, including bands, DJs, VJs, circus, graffiti, spoken word and more.
For over 10 years, a community of volunteers have been coming together to put on 3 days of arts and music with a core aim of no sponsorship, long queues or expensive food and drinks.
With two stages, there are a range of acts, back-to-back, as the team alternate between the two. There’s no poetry tent, acoustic stage or dance tent, it’s all one programme that takes in a wide range of music and arts.
The arts program this year includes a live graffiti battle with Drips and Runs, poetry from Vanessa Kissule, Dean McCaffrey, circus from Elena Marina, workshops from DrumNation and holistic goodness from the Z en Zone.
Hamswell favourites Batala Bristol Band and Hooping Mad Community will return for the 2016 festival celebration.
The festival is run on the passion, grit and determination of a dedicated group of volunteers, steered by chief organiser and musician, Jonny Wharton aka Jonny Falls Over.
Hamswell has supported local and upcoming acts as well as some big names including; Maxi Jazz; DJ Yoda, Hempolics, Nicki Blackmarket; Freestylers; Fiona Bevan; Kal Lavelle, King Charles, Se7en Deadly Breaks; Fat Whites Family; The Other Tribe and Shades of Rhythm.
