A star-studded line up of chart topping music acts are all set to descend on The Cotswolds for one of the most exciting music festivals of the summer. Scouting for Girls, Toploader, The Hoosiers, and The Feeling are all headlining Livestock Festival 2015.

Livestock Festival promises an unforgettable weekend of music, film and comedy in the glorious countryside of rural Gloucestershire. Alongside the main headline acts, music fans will be spoilt for choice as BBC’s The Voice Winner Jermaine Jackman and Josh Kumra will also both be performing live on the Acoustic Stage.

Looking out across the picturesque Malvern Hills, Livestock Festival will feature a Bob Slayer’s comedy themed Blunda Bus, an outdoor cinema, an array of street food pop-up dining experiences and extensive camping facilities.

Founder Ben Leeke, from Livestock Festival, said: “Bringing artists like The Feeling and Scouting for Girls to rural Gloucestershire to play a boutique festival likes ours sends shivers down my spine. We have secured an amazing line-up of headline artists as well as putting together a tantalising entertainment and experience package around our music stages. Our aim is to try to cater for everyone by offering live music, under the stars cinema, top comedy, delicious street food, camping and glamping facilities as well as a kids crèche! We are really hoping it will be an event to remember and the perfect finish to summer.”

Line Up

During the three-day festival, the Livestock Main Stage will be flooded with musical talent. Headlining on Friday is BRIT award nominated rock band, The Feeling. Supporting them are Hunter and The Bear, Grafton Ash, Under a Banner and The Nick Parker Band.

On Saturday, festivalgoers can dance in the moonlight with Toploader and sing along with BRIT favourites Scouting for Girls. Indica Campbell, daughter of Ali Campell from UB40, will also make her festival debut showcasing her musical talents.

Also on the Main Stage will be The Leylines, Penny For The Workhouse, Erica, Prism, Son of Jack, Scott Howland and I Am The ID.

Chart toppers The Hoosiers will headline the Main Stage on Sunday with support from Jungle Doctors, Foreign Affairs, Mark Leedham, Bren Haze, Jack of All, Bengal Lancers, Johnny Kowalski & The Sexy Weirdos, Done by Sunrise and All Hail Regale.

Those looking for a more chilled atmosphere can visit the Woodland Stage and watch BBC’s The Voice winner Jermaine Jackman, alongside chart topper Josh Kumra, who is best known for his collaboration with Wretch 32.  

The Woodland Stage, curated by The Coffee House Sessions, will feature an array of local folk and acoustic acts throughout the day and early evening before switching to DJ’s, for those who are looking to continue to party into the early hours.

Under The Stars Outdoor Cinema

After the live music has finished, the Main Stage will transform into an incredible outdoor cinema.  Crowds will be able to watch two classic films each evening from 11pm under the evening’s night sky.

In June, the public will be asked to vote on what films they would like to see at Livestock. The vote will go live on Facebook.

Camping

With over 40 acres to camp in, the stunning Gloucestershire setting will be the perfect place to end the night. The camping fields are close to the festival stages, each equipped with a toilet, shower block and running water.

For those who have children or just need an early night, there will also be quiet camping areas at one end of the camping field.

To have more of a glamping experience and spend the weekend in luxury, Bell Tents and Family Tents are available to hire.
