After 6 successful years, boutique festival Lounge on the Farm will be returning to Canterbury in Kent once again. Armed with its winning combination of unique location on a real, working farm, delicious locally sourced food and family friendly atmosphere, Lounge on the Farm – which has previously won ‘Best Line Up’ at the UK Festival Awards – is set to once again present a diverse and reputable line up that represents a mixture of chart-topping acts, hot new bands, DJs and local talent.

Lounge on the Farm was born in 2006 out of the desire to bring a unique slant to the UK summer festival market, and provide an event that promoted Kent and its many performers, musicians, traders and creative talents. It has been going from strength to strength ever since, winning “Best Line Up” at the 2009 UK Festival Awards and the “Sustainability” award in both 2008 and again in 2011 at the Greener Festival Awards. The gorgeous landscape of Merton Farm on which the festival is situated combines the very best elements for the ultimate British Summertime.
