Lawnfest, the one-day family boutique festival, will back for its fifth year on July 6th, 2013 at West Heath School, Sevenoaks, Kent. Encapsulating all that is truly wonderful and magical about family festivals Lawnfest is truly one of summer's hidden gems.
Loved by festivalgoers of every generation, this is the perfect family day out in every sense of the word. The festival was set up as a non-profit event to help fund bursaries for West Heath School, a charity that helps rebuild the lives of children.
Set across 32 acres of the Kent countryside Lawnfest welcome back the very popular Children's Garden Area and musical hero's Man Like Me. Joining Man Like Me on the main stage will be Josephine and BBC Kent's very own and host for the day, Sean Rowley, plus more acts will be announced. Throughout the day a fine medley of fun filled happenings will keep all the family entertained. The festival attracts many famous faces including the Queen of Pop herself, Madonna. A selection of food and drinks will be available and not to forget the Lawnfest Boutique and very special raffle. What more could you ask for on a summers day?
Man Like Me are a brilliantly bonkers troupe from London who have developed a unique carnival-esque blend of Brit pop mixed with old-fashioned trumpet vibes and brazen London style rap. Man Like Me's collective energy is always a spectacular to behold and it comes as no surprise that Lawnfest had to have the guys back. Last year they stole the show and left the sold out festival wanting more. They have a new album out in March so expect to hear new and old material from this exciting band de jour.
Josephine is currently on tour with Paloma Faith and is tipped for greatness from musical greats such as Jools Holland. Her vocals are so richly soulful, so deeply mature it's no wonder that she's already found herself working with the likes of Leo Abrahams (Grace Jones, Nick Cave) and Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, Estelle).
