LeeFest presents The Neverland showcase for Auguest 2017, the festival’s biggest line-up to date.
Straight out of Nottingham, LeeFest headliner Jake Bugg became a household name following his eponymous debut album. He has earned legions of fans thanks to his folk anthems and intimate stage presence.
Jake’s critically acclaimed latest album, On My One, is a departure from his folk roots, and combines his love of hip hop with his infectious brand of 70s pop.
Fellow headliner Annie Mac is renowned as one of dance music’s most supreme selectors.
Easily one of the world’s most hard-working DJ’s, Annie is known for her high octane live shows. As well as being a globe-trotting DJ, she famously sits at the helm as Radio 1’s champion of new music, with her own much-loved Friday night show.
LeeFest welcomes very special guests Wild Beasts into The Neverland for the first time.
Beloved by critics and music lovers alike, Wild Beasts craft beautiful tracks with kaleidoscopic guitar rhythms and lyrics you can scream at the top of your lungs, all of which feature alongside their stunning visuals.
The chart-topping hip-hop collective will be taking over Wonderland’s Beach Stage with a personally curated line-up of their favourite need-to-know acts including Moxie and Makeness.
Topped off with a knockout DJ set from Jungle themselves.
Cementing their position as the leading UK festival for new music, a selection of the finest up and coming acts complete the first announcement, including BBC Sound of 2017’s Tom Greenan, Zane Lowe approved Fickle Friends, and Bad Sounds, who were recently crowned hottest record in the world by Annie Mac.
The hotly tipped Ider, Strong Asian Mothers, Fish, Keston Cobblers Club, and Catholic Action are amongst many more need-to-know names on the lineup, with even more to be announced, including their final headliner.
Three realms make up The Neverland, revellers enter another world, each under the rule of a different Tribe. The Mermaids are the shimmering queens of Mermaids Lagoon.
At Skull Ridge anarchy is the order of the day, as the Pirates reign supreme. The Lost Boys of The Neverwoods are the practical jokers; the children of the forest who refuse to grow up.
Escaping the confines of the real world, the Neverland’s kingdom offers an extensive selection of shape-shifting dance troupes, glitter fuelled games, real beach parties, tranquility spa, comedy, arts and craft workshops, cinema and more wonders to be announced.
