Festival Description

The mini-festival is being held in support of the Barge Inn Community Project (BICP) — a group of Wiltshire villagers who are taking over their local pub with the help of a Lottery grant. Honeyfest features some of the UK’s biggest pop acts and aims to draw attention to the closure of rural pubs up and down the country.

Thinking Local is a big part of Honeyfest. Local music talent is supported with the ‘Battle of the Bands’ competition winners being given their chance on the big stage. Locally produced food and drink, sold alongside other items and services from local suppliers, is central to the ethos of the festival. Local volunteers make up a percentage of the festivals staff. 2012 will maintain the theme of Village SOS, along with the continued association with the Barge Inn Community Project.

Camping:
  • There is no camping on the festival site, HOWEVER, the Barge Inn has a fantastic campsite and they are also running a shuttle bus to and from the festival. This alongside what will probably be the best afterparty in Wiltshire must be a definite choice for all campers but I would book early to avoid disappointment (there are also a lot of other great campsites in the vicinity).
