Festivalgoers will get the chance to watch cult classics under the stars at Livestock 2015.

The festival’s Main Stage will transform into a giant outdoor cinema screening films for both adults and children alike from 11pm.

For the last month, the public have been voting on Facebook for their favourite flick and the final choices can now be revealed. Guests can watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on Friday, Monty Python’s Life of Brian on Saturday and The Goonies on Sunday. Revellers are invited to pull up deck chairs and roll out blankets on the festival green to soak up the cinematic atmosphere.

Founder of Livestock Festival, Ben Leeke said: “There’s nothing quite like seeing one of your favourite films on the big screen and what better way than on a summers eve under the stars! As the live music comes to an end, people can grab a spot and one of our locally brewed Livestock beers, bring pillows or blankets and truly chill out. It will be the perfect ending to the evening.”

Film fans can catch a screening of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on Friday 31st July starring Matthew Broderick and Jennifer Grey. This coming of age film became one of the top-grossing films of 1986. On Saturday night, British box office success Monty Python’s Life of Brian will show. Formally named as the ‘greatest film of all time’ by Channel 4 and The Guardian, the comedy film stars BAFTA winner John Cleese. The Goonies is Sunday’s choice. Featuring child stars Corey Feldman, Jeff Cohen and Josh Brolin, the cult classic favourite produced by Steven Spielberg follows a band of pre-teens on an adventure to unearth treasure from a legendary pirate.

The Under the Stars Outdoor Cinema is only one of the many delights that will be on offer during the weekend. Alongside chart topping headliners, there will also be live acoustic performances from BBC’s The Voice Winner Jermain Jackman on the Woodland Stage as well as a comedy show and an array of children’s entertainment such as bouncy castles, arts and crafts and circus skills workshops. For those party animals that want to ‘Dance in the Moonlight’, a Woodland DJ will be playing into the early hours. To fuel all this activity, there’s everything you can wish for from the Pop Up Street Food vendors along with the festivals locally brewed Livestock Beer and Dunkerton’s Cider.
