The team behind LeeFest are creating a new, exciting and immersive experience for the Kent countryside next August. A step up from a traditional festival. A kingdom of music, party and wonder; Neverworld will host three realms and 11 stages designed to encourage a childlike sense of exploration and discovery.
The festival will be an intimate experience limited to 5,000 festival-goers and 250 renowned and upcoming artists performing across the weekend. As 2017 marks the final year for the much-loved LeeFest; 2018 will see the start a very exciting new chapter for its creators and fans.
Neverworld will host some of the hottest new names in music with epic venues The Fortress and The Circus, alongside a workshop and family programme in The Native Encampment. Mermaids Lagoon will deliver the finest garage, house and disco in a lavish, sun drenched 1980’s Miami Setting featuring 100 tons of sand on The Beach and a 24-hour dag bar The Rainbow Rooms where anything goes. Those of piratical persuasion should head to Skull Ridge for their late night antics, featuring The Goldmine; a disused mine converted with 8 stacks of funktion one for bass-music-lovers Hooks Rock punk and grime dive bar andGentleman Starkeys Cabaret Club. Further details about this Baz Luhrmann style take on Peter Pan will be revealed in the build up to the event.
Speaking about the unveiling of Neverworld, founder Lee Denny says; “The story of LeeFest and its origins in my back garden all those years ago was the seed for something incredible, but it’s time for the next chapter. When we started this crazy adventure we did so by pushing personal boundaries and creating something awesome for our friends. However, now the story is much bigger than us. As the LeeFest community has snowballed, so have our ambitions. Instead of just a festival, we want to build a whole new world for our community to thrive in. A world that encourages growth and creativity. Discover your inner Pirate, Mermaid or Lost Boy. Welcome to Neverworld; a place you never have to grow old!”
