Gerd Janson, Psychemagik, Paul Daley and Leo Mas are among the guests confirmed to play at this year’s Alfresco Festival that runs 26th-29th May 2017 @ Colebrook Lakes, Royal Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

The Festival returns for a second year in its stunning home of Colebrook Lakes, Royal Tunbridge Wells. Describing itself as “A family friendly festival that is musically non-compromising” Alfresco boasts a line-up that includes legends of dance music and electronica alongside the best in current underground music. Alfresco, originally born Blackpool, is curated by Mark Davis and Nicky Chanot.

After 2016’s huge success, the festival has been expanded to include two more outdoor stages to cater for more diversity in sounds. Whether you’re out in ‘The Woods’ or the Big Top tents you’ll get the very best in Balearic, disco, acid house, electronica, funk, hip hop, house and reggae. Acts such as Boiler Room favourites Gerd Jansen, Optimo and Sadar Bahar share the bill with icons including former Kraftwerk percussionist Wolfgang Flür, Paul Daley (ex Leftfield) and Boys Own legend Terry Farley. Other highlights will be Paranoid London performing live, Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip’s amazing Prince tribute, The Crazy P Soundsystem and dancefloor mystics, Psychemagik. The Alfresco Festival twist is that it caters for parents and families just as much as underground music fans. With a huge arena full of entertainers, shows, stalls, fun and games, the little people are always kept happy. This area is also where the main stage is situated, so as a parent you can enjoy great music whilst being close to your children as they play and explore.

Alfresco Festival 2017 will also see many other new additions including a holistic wellbeing area. The selection of street food stall and bars has increased with a variety of world and classic British cuisine. There will be bars at every stage, including a new main bar in the central area that this year will sell draught lagers, ales and locally brewed ciders. With regular camping, beautiful glamping options, and plentiful local hotels, all weekend revellers are well catered for. Day visitors are also very welcome and single day tickets are available for each of the three days.
