The Castle Stage Rises…

The floors are down, the tent is up, the carpet’s laid, the soundcheck’s been and gone, and we’re almost set to throw open the doors to The Castle Stage tomorow. LOK HQ has relocated to be within spitting distance of the festival, and behind-the-scenes it’s go-go-go to get this mother off the ground and kick off with a musical bang come 2pm. The stage has been erected and is looking pretty fly. We can hear the mummer of not so distant beats…. Let the festival season commence!

The daytime hub, in association with Desperados and curated by Rockfeedback, will be playing host to a headline DJ set from the headdress-wearing, globe-conquering Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. Its thumping floor will also see performances from ex-Metronomy man Night Works, a 21-strong female choir Gaggle, experimental glitzy ensemble Chrome Hoof, Warp’s Darkstar and folk-pop outfit Landshapes.

Box Office opens at 2pm SHARP – get down early and sniff out the special drinks for early arrivers. Bring your ticket reference, ID, cash (Box Office is cash-only FYI), and bangin’ good-time vibes.

One. More. Sleep.
