Never mind beer and food, the only thing you should be over indulging in this summer is the Festibelly music festival, which returns to Undershore, in Lymington, Hampshire this year. Nestled in the New Forest, the festival site is all set to come alive to the sounds of an interesting array of music acts, DJ’s, and live art battles in the Secret Wars Arena. Alongside the main stage, there will also be a second stage hosting acoustic music, comedy, and the festivals popular ‘Folk Off’ competition. So whether you’re partying at one of the music stages, chilling round the campfire, or enjoying the best New Forest delicacies, it’s sure to be a fun weekend, and there’s even a few early line-up announcements to tempt you to buy a ticket too.
First up there is The Invisible, a trio of London friends whose debut album was nominated for the 2009 Mercury Music Prize. They will be joined by fellow Londoner’s Man Like Me, who combine Indie, Rave, Ska, Grime, and Hip Hop to create, what they say at least, is a representation of Youthful Britain! The London Trio will be completed by King Charles, a man whose recently been favoured by some top BBC DJ’s. Also on the bill to bring music to your ears is My Tiger My Timing, and Tek One, a dubstep duo who create their music from circuit bent childrens toys, broken keyboards and more! Their live show also features live synths and FX, and DJ-ing, so you could be in for an electrifying experience! (pardon the pun!)
