The government’s announcement of the road map out of the lockdown has many people feeling optimistic about being able to get away on holiday this year, and for music fans, the promise of the return of live music is a reason to put on your dancing shoes!
According to Gloucestershire Live, Alex James, best known for playing the bass with British band Blur, and now a professional cheesemaker, has revealed that his annual music and food festival, the 10th Big Feastival, is set to return on August Bank Holiday (August 27 – 29 August 2021) on his idyllic Cotswolds farm in Gloucestershire.
Like many festivals and events, the Big Feastival was cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic but will return this year with the impressive roster of acts who were due to perform in 2020, which includes the likes of Rag‘n’Bone Man, Nile Rodgers & CHIC and Zara Larsson.
Joining them at the three-day event, which is sponsored by M&S, are the likes of Tom Walker, Max & Harvey, Norman Jay, Reef, and regulars The Cuban Brothers. The party gets started on Friday night is DJ-and-producer Sigala.
Rock star turned cheesemaker Alex said: “I cannot wait to welcome everyone back to the farm this summer for our 10th Birthday party! We’re all in need of a serious celebration this year so we’re pulling out all the stops to ensure this is our best line-up yet. Roll on August!”
He added, in a statement, that the highlight of the summer was having all the music and food fans join him on his farm but had to cancel last year for the safety of everyone involved. He added that he can’t wait to see everyone in the Cheese Hub in 2021.
