A NEW DAY FESTIVAL 2017
August 25th-27th Mt Ephraim Gardens, Faversham, Kent
Well, didn't we have a lovely time at our very first A New Day Festival? The music was terrific, the weather was glorious and what a lovely bunch of people in attendance :-)
The feedback we've received has been almost unanimously positive and extremely heart-warming. OK, we had a few teething problems in spite of all our careful planning. You've told us about them, (especially the toilets!) we are acting upon your comments and we have identified at least one supplier that will not be coming back! Valuable lessons have been learnt and we are confident that all will be as it should be this year...
Please note the new dates this year, but same beautiful venue of course. Our line-up is now complete, as below:
New Model Army
John Lees' Barclay James Harvest
Jethro Tull's Martin Barre & Band
Martin Turner x Wishbone Ash
Del Bromham's Blues Devils
Dennis Greaves & Mark Feltham
The Fierce & The Dead
Jackie McAuley Band
Pearl Handled Revolver
Chris Conway & Dan Britton
Rockin' The Joint
We have decided, along with the Dawes family who own the site at Mt Ephraim, that we need to cap ticket numbers. We had a remarkably good crowd last year, particularly for our first event, but the parking and campsites were nearing full capacity, and we are wary of the danger of over-selling and the problems it would cause for our customers and the surrounding area. With this in mind we have no option but to increase ticket prices very slightly this year, but we hope you agree prices are still extremely fair given such a great line-up of classic bands.
Tickets are selling much faster than last year with well over double already sold compared with this time last year, and it is possible we will sell out in advance - almost certainly camping and campervan tickets - so we do urge you, if you intend to come this year, to book well in advance.
The good news is we have secured a reliable supplier of ample, clean and SERVICED toilets this year, and almost as important, we have decided to keep bar prices set at a remarkable £3.50 a pint - almost certainly the cheapest festival bar anywhere!
Pre-pitched camping and Glamping (Boutique camping) supplied this year by Tangerine Fields - see details on LATEST NEWS page.
We have downloadable Festival Flyers on the website, and if you feel you would like a bundle to distribute in your local pubs/clubs or wherever (all help is very welcome )please email and he will get some to you.
Any questions, please look first on our FAQ section on the website where almost every conceivable question is already answered.
