Are you looking to escape the city this Bank Holiday weekend? Well, we think we’ve found just the thing for you. Between 24th and 26th May, Under The Hill Festival will be landing in Ashton Under Hill, near Evesham, Worcester.
Billed as a new boutique music festival that doesn’t cost the earth, Under The Hill Festival is back for its third year with headline act Slamboree Soundsystem providing circus rave energy with a powerhouse vocal and MC.
With an impressive line up of artists including energetic ska/dub/punk group Popes of Chillitown, one of the hottest secrets of the Portuguese underground Pas de Probleme and the winner of the festival’s 2018 Battle of the Bands competition, Jeremy Johnson, Under the Hill Festival is set to be bigger and better than ever.
Starting with an evening of chilled out live music on Friday 24th May, the festival will continue on Saturday 25th May with a full day of bands paving the way in Electroswing, Balkan, Reggae and Afrobeat and ending with their infamous rave in the woods with top DJs in Drum & base, Jungle and Electro.
Keen to support the local community, the festival will be showcasing local traders bringing food, clothing and creative stalls to the event. Children under 16 go free with a paying adult and there are plenty of child friendly activities planned making Under The Hill a festival for all ages.
Mista Trick, DJ and Artist Director of Under The Hill said: “The past two years have surpassed expectation! We have been blown away by the support and feedback from those that have joined us at Under The Hill so far. We can’t wait to welcome more people to the event, with more incredible acts, representing a huge spectrum of musical diversity. It can be tough to find a festival that balances top music, with intimacy and personality, and doesn’t cost the earth, but that’s exactly what we want to achieve with Under The Hill.’
The festival is only 35 minutes from Birmingham, 1 hour from Bristol and 2 hours from London by train. The organisers encourage festival goers to travel by public transport to do their bit for the environment and are providing free shuttle services between the station and the festival.
