There’s a new festival on the scene: Bigfoot, making its debut this summer with a three-day celebration of music, entertainment, food and drinks. Taking place in the beautiful grounds of Ragley Hall in Warwickshire, the festival will see over 60 music acts across five stages, alongside an impressive selection of restaurants, chefs, and drinks producers.
Heading up the banqueting tent is Douglas McMaster of Silo, alongside Matt Orlando of Copenhagen’s Amass. Together they’ll host Blackout Dining: a sustainable vegetarian feast cooked using no electricity whatsoever, with spots for 200 guests to dine under the stars at candlelit tables. A number of top London restaurants will also be dishing up the goods, alongside a line-up of popular street vendors including Patty & Bun and Dough & Brew.
The Main Stage will see performances from the likes of Little Dragon, Fat White Family and Hot Chip Megamix, while the Sasquatch Bandstand will be the home of experimental performance. Keen to party the night away? Head to The Treehouse Dance Stage, which will keep revellers dancing late into the night with a series of DJs including George Fitzgerald and Erol Alkan.
Ragley Hall is home to a beautiful lake, which festival-goers will be able to sail or swim across. Alternatively, chill in the open-air in one of the timber-clad hot tubs. There’s also plenty on offer for children, including kids’ raves, forest foraging and mini yoga, as well as a dedicated family camping area.
Bigfoot is the brainchild of Daniel Sylvester and Greg Wells, co-founders of We Are Beer, and follows the success of their London, Bristol and Edinburgh Craft Beer Festivals. ‘Bigfoot is our ideal version of a modern lifestyle festival,’ says Greg. ‘We’ve designed this from the ground up to showcase the incredibly dynamic culture around craft beer, cutting-edge food and great music.’
