Brits Critics' Choice Winner Jack Garratt and London duo Oh Wonder Announced to Headline Barn on The Farm Festival 2016

Heavily renowned for a carefully tailored line-up and predicting future success, BOTF has pulled out all the stops. Two years in a row BOTF sees Brits Critic's Choice Winners headlining the main stage. In his third time playing the festival, Jack Garratt will set the Main Stage alight on Sunday night after his hotly anticipated album ‘Phase'. It’s already been an incredible year for Jack, who said, "I've been away a lot recently because I'm lucky enough to go and play shows around the world but I already know that headlining Barn on the Farm will be one of the most important shows I play this year. The crowd there is always so welcoming, I know it'll feel like coming home."
 
Achieving unbelievable dreams, writing duo Oh Wonder, who released a song a month in 2015, will headline the Saturday night. The London pair have just come back from a sell-out North American tour after releasing their impeccable self-titled first album. The duo mentioned, "We're so excited to headline this year's Barn On The Farm! We've watched this wonderful festival grow and can't wait to join the amazing list of bands from previous years."
 
BOTF's two Main Stage headliners will be joined by singer song-writer Gavin James, who will headline the Wooden Barn Stage on Saturday, and Communion's Frances, who will headline Sunday night. 
 
The announcement today also sees Coastal Love duo Honne, vocalist and producer Rationale and singer-songwriter, years beyond her age, Billie Marten.  Continually showcasing the best in up-and-coming music, BOTF also unveils firm festival favourite JP Cooper, Liverpool quartet Clean Cut Kid, plus the distinctive and soulful sounds of Zak Abel, who has previously been guest vocalist for Bondax and supported Kwabs.
 
Completing the first announcement are Samm Henshaw, Black Honey, Dagny, The Hunna, Martin Luke Brown, Isaac Gracie, Seramic, Will Joseph Cook, Mahalia, Jessarae, Etham, Tom Walker, Rhys Lewis, James TW, Pleasure Beach and The Tin Pigeons plus many more to come. 
 
With emerging music at the heart of the festival 2016 is set to be one of the most exciting years yet and will feature a new festival layout. Born in 2009 BOTF has seen  internationally renowned artists grace the barns including Ed Sheeran, James Bay, Ben Howard, Hozier, Bastille, George Ezra, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Wolf Alice, Matt Corby, Gabrielle Aplin, Benjamin Frances Leftwich and The Staves, to name only a few. Set in the perfect setting of the Gloucestershire countryside BOTF is the perfect festival for music lovers, full of supreme personal performances from the most exciting and up-coming artists to some of the best-established musicians.
