Blissfields announces folktastic line-up

The lovely people at Blissfields have announced the first few acts for the Hampshire festival. And it’s good news for folk fans. 

Confirmed artists include lovely Laura Marling, marvellous Mumford and Sons, charming Cherbourg, really-very-good Ryan O’Reilly and the brilliant beat-boxing hip-hop folk-funkster Gideon Conn. 

As if all the music (and alliteration) weren’t enough, promoters Girls In Green Shoes are promising “A great local bar with real ales (pub prices),” and “The friendliest campsite of the summer.” Pub prices! At a festival! The friendliness sounds nice too. 

The three-day festival takes place at Bradley Farm in Alresford, Hampshire on 3th-5th July. 

FFS suggests getting in there quickly for tickets. A weekend adult with camping  costs £45 including booking fees. Tickets are only available from the Blissfields website
