Festibelly, now in its fifth year, is nestled among the woodland on the edge of the New Forest. For the first time in 2012 it opens its doors as a two day party.
As well as the musical talent on the main stage, the Festibelly field will play host to a number of venues and attractions including Terrapin Station, Le Disco, brand new Le Roller Disco, Massive In China and Autumn Shift – together creating a kaleidoscope of psychedelic gypsy to dirty disco, wrong cabaret, circus performance, wonky gameshows, cosy cafés, poetry, painting and more. This year Festibelly flings its arms wide open to those with young Festi Critters, bringing new kids entertainment area The Owlery to site.
Festibelly stays close to its grassroots ethos and remains brand and sponsorship free.
