Just be prepared to eat and see a lot of jelly!
The Jelly Festival includes a line-up of some of the biggest names and emerging talent on the music scene, including Mercury prize winning Roni Size, renowned for being one of the founding fathers of Drum and Bass and a true giant in the dance music scene and American band The Felice Brothers with their mud stomping, washboard thrashing folk.
Promising a ‘Banquet of Sound’ and summer entertainment, the Jelly mix includes Folk, Indie, Funk, Soul, Reggae, Swing, Balkan, Disco House, Electro, DnB and Dubstep to keep people wobbling to the beats of the latest sounds all day long. Alex Metric with his body popping electro and Lucy Rose’s acoustic loveliness are highlights not to be missed!
Spread out over eight acres in the grounds of Compton Hall in the un-spoilt North Norfolk Countryside, the Jelly House Party with a living room main stage, kitchen banqueting area, bedroom big top bar, reggae rumpus room, play room and summer house cocktail bar will ensure people feel right at home! Each room is allocated to a different stage or area within the festival.
Alongside the massive acts and performances, there’s an array of family and children’s entertainment, workshops, film, food and interactive games.
Whether you want to be a happy camper or just come along for a day of uncensored fun, music and adventure, the Jelly Festival has it all.
Friday 17th August is ideal for people travelling from further afield who want to see the best of what the county has to offer and locals who want to make a weekend of it. North Norfolk is abound with stunning countryside and is close by to stunning beaches, including Wells-next-the-Sea (8 miles).
The campsite on the Friday opens at 19:00 and is an ideal opportunity to get to know your neighbours and enjoy some circus performance, acoustic acts and a movie ready for the opening of the main arena on the Saturday.
Ben Gardner, organiser of the Jelly Festival said: “The Jelly Festival is a music festival that breaks the mould. I’m a keen festival goer and noticed there was a gap in the market for an event that would appeal to a wide audience and accommodate families, whilst still having musical integrity. I wanted to create a festival that is reflective of the old country fayres that bring the community together, whilst giving people a chance to perform and sell their produce. Jelly holds these traditional elements but with high end production, mountains of decor and big acts that have travelled globally. There’s something to suit everyone and is a great place to bring the kids. This year is our fifth year and we are going to create the most incredible festival experience to date. The Jelly Monster may even be making an appearance too!"
The 2012 festival in Fakenham, Norfolk is raising money for Rebecca’s Wishes.
