LeeFest has come a long way since Lee Denny decided to hold a festival in his parents’ back garden in Beckenham a decade ago.

Ten years on, the biggest ever edition of the festival has kicked off on a farm near Edenbridge in Kent.

This year LeeFest presents Neverland is spread across three ‘distinct, immersive realms’ with thousands of people soaking up the atmosphere of The Neverwoods, Mermaids’ Lagoon and Skull Ridge.

The festival has a history of breaking new acts, with the likes of Bastille, London Grammar and Jack Garratt playing the festival shortly before hitting the big time.

Today’s acts included Croydon rapper Loyle Carner, Everything Everything and Peluche with a headline slot from two-time Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet.

The line-up for tomorrow and Saturday includes south London soul singer Lianne La Havas and indie rockers We Are Scientists.
