New immersive festival Neverworld, formed by the creators of LeeFest, has announced the first acts set to play the Kent-based event.
Clean Bandit will headline, with a special guest yet to be announced for Saturday. Also confirmed for the bill are Declan McKenna, Rae Morris, We Are Scientists and Tom Grennan.
The festival will run from August 2-5 at John Darlings Farm in Wilderness Lane, and encourages festival-goers to join a tribe - The Pirates, The Mermaids or The Lost Boys - where different activities will allow them to “adventure into their wildest dreams.”
The 5,000-capacity Neverworld will host three realms and 11 stages, and will showcase 250 artists. Tickets are available now, with more acts yet to be announced.
The event is a successor to LeeFest, which hosted early performances by the likes of Bastille, London Grammar, Years & Years, Young Fathers, Jack Garratt, Clean Bandit and Public Service Broadcasting.
