Today Farr Festival disclose details about their brand new main stage “The Factory“, which will debut this summer (13-15th July) at Bygrave Woods in Hertfordshire.
The Factory is a super-size main stage comprised of 52 shipping containers arranged into a rectangle formation that will accommodate 2500 people. The Factory will also shelter a monumental custom-built L-Acoustics sound system, apex stage, pulsating LED lighting rods plus a video mapping system to truly bring the shock and awe to the festival.
Farr Festival are working tirelessly to morph the mundane reality of containerization into a fully industrialised complex dedicated to unique live performances that will feature the likes of Todd Terje, Booka Shade, Red Axes, Submotion Orchestra, Mungo’s Hi Fi, General Levy and many more.
Further to this Farr Festival have also gained a new license, which brings along vast improvements to previous editions of the UK based festival. This year sound levels have been increased meaning that you’ll experience thundering sound levels across all six stage. The new license also permits for the music to keep pumping much later on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
They have also announced a dedicated shuttle bus service running every 30 minutes from Baldock train station to the festival, so you will no longer have to hitch or hike to Farr Festival! Londoners take note that Baldock train station is only 30 minutes from London Kings Cross.
