Barn On The Farm by Dan Harris

Held on a working farm,A few miles outside Gloucester “Barn On The Farm” is one of the most chilled out, intimate and relaxed festivals around. Every year Barn On The Farm hosts artists and bands most who return year after year, as well as new up and coming bands and singer songwriters who join the ever expanding barn family.With Tom Grennan and Tom Misch headlining the event this year in 2018,

So who should you see this year…?

Lauren Aquilina

After retiring from music two years ago due to mental health issues, Lauren is now playing her first festival in three years. Being announced to play the Friday of Barn on the Farm as part of ‘Behind Barn Doors Friday’, she last played her “fave festival” back in 2015, so is bound to pull out all of the stops with her brand of melancholic pop for her appearance this year.

Anteros

The band Anteros have been working the festival circuit hard over the past 2 years and it shows. They’re growing in so many ways, I saw them recently at the Handmade Festival, they have a great guitar player but its lead vocalist Laura Hayden who shines with so much Charisma their uptempo tracks and a really entertaining live show, Anteros have more than earned a place on our ones to watch list! just for the fun they bring.

Lewis Capaldi

Scottish singer songwriter Capaldi rose to prominence after the release of his first single ‘Bruises’ which climbed to reached 28 million streams on Spotify, which made him the fastest ever unsigned artist to reach 25 million streams on the site. He was also on the list for BBC sound of 2018: all these achievements have lead him to selling out UK tours, supporting Niall Horan, and playing countless festivals. He released his debut EP ‘Bloom’ in October With his gravelly vocal and repertoire of sad and lost love songs He is definitely one to look out for over the weekend.

Lily Moore

I don’t even really know where to begin with Lily Moore. I’ve seen her twice now,  she has impressed equally on both occasions. She is self-assured singer songwriter and really lets her emotions shine through . Aside from being amazing, you really couldn’t ask for more from a performance. She also knows how to engage her crowd, chatting away in between. It’s an absolute pleasure and her vocal … just watch it below and go see her, I won’t spoil it.

Gengahr

After the release of their second album ‘Where Wildness Grows’ in March of this year, Gengahr have been relentlessly on the touring circuit with a bustling run of festivals still on their itinerary this summer. Their record has been highly well received, and is full of uplifting, summery and memorable guitar riffs that we hoping will be translated live with a heavy elegance.

Lewis Watson

Having played Barn On The Farm multiple times, Lewis Watson is well known to returning  festival goers, and is bound to grace the fields with his heart-felt lyrics, heavenly vocals, and acoustic guitar melodies that intermingle perfectly to create his signature indie folk tunes. Having recently released an EP with covers from the 90s,00s, and 10s, the excitement for him to perform live again is at an all time high.

Nina Nesbitt

Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbsitt is well known for her cover of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Dont Stop’ which was used on a John Lewis advert back in 2014. Since the start of her music career in 2011,. Her recent release ‘The Sun Will Come Up, The Seasons Will Change’ is very laid back, synth heavy offering — a lot slower than her prior releases from ‘Peroxide’, but is a welcome progression that we hope to see at this year’s Barn On The Farm.

Fours

A bnad thats getting some good press, I’ve been wanting to see for over a year and haven’t managed to yet. London’s Fours make indie pop that really blows my skirt up. There’s an edge to it, a spunky attitude and frontwoman Edit has a vocal that is more than your average indie pop vocal, it would sit well among peers such as Yonaka and Estrons should she decide she wanted to go darker and harder. Really excited at the prospect of seeing them at such a brilliant setting.

Orla Gartland

Irish singer-songwriter Orla Gartland started out by putting songs up on her YouTube channel in 2007, and now she’s playing to sold out crowds across the country and playing festivals across the world. In May 2018 she released her first single in three years ‘I Go Crazy’, and comparing this to her last EP ‘Lonely People’ you can see how much she has grown musically in the past three years.

Along with all these amazing artists there are many, many more who you should try and catch, such as: Tom Misch; Hudson Taylor; Aquilo; Pale Waves; Billie Marten; and Ten Tonnes.

The Intimate Thursday, and Behind Barn Doors Friday line-ups have just been released, so if you managed to grab a ticket for those days, you are in for a treat.

Thursday: Billie Marten, Matthew and the Atlas,  Dan Owen,  Cassi, Vistas, Secret Headliner (Zak Abel).

Barn On The Farm started the same year Popped Music was born and we’ve been welcomed into the fold over the last few years. We’ve had such a great time that we practically begged to come back again this year.  We’ve also named Barn On The Farm our favourite outdoor festival of 2016 and 2017! It’s a special place full of friendly people.

A festival that is special for the people who run it, the people who play it and the people who visit. It’s a small boutique festival with a special kind of attention to detail that delights. They have had the creme de la creme in live music play for them and this year is no different. Barn On The Farm takes care to bring their acts back time after time, pushing them further up the stages as their careers develop. Something that’s really lovely to see when it’s such a small festival.

As always there is an abundance of acts available to watch this year and we would happily watch every single one, so here are just a few of our ones to watch to whet your appetite.

Fours

My first pick is a band I’ve been wanting to see for over a year and haven’t managed to yet. London’s Fours make indie pop that really blows my skirt up. There’s an edge to it, a spunky attitude and frontwoman Edit has a vocal that is more than your average indie pop vocal, it would sit well among peers such as Yonaka and Estrons should she decide she wanted to go darker and harder. Really excited at the prospect of seeing them at such a brilliant setting.

Lily Moore

I don’t even really know where to begin with Lily Moore. I’ve seen her as recently as 2 days ago and before then sometime in 2017 and she impressed equally on both occasions. She is self-assured and really lets her emotions shine through her songs. Aside from being amazing, you really couldn’t ask for more from a performance. She also knows how to engage her crowd, chatting away in between. It’s an absolute pleasure and her vocal … just watch it below and go see her, I won’t spoil it.

Anteros

A band, I believe, were initially introduced to me by our pals Flying Vinyl, Anteros have been working the festival circuit hard over the past 2 years and it shows. They’re growing in so many ways and it’s been a while since I last saw them even if other Popped writers have been there more recently. With uptempo tracks and a really entertaining live show, Anteros have more than earned a place on our ones to watch list!

Bad Sounds

I’ve been somewhat quietly obsessed with Bad Sounds since their debut single landed with me almost 2 years. This time last year I felt ashamed that as a new music blog I’d not shouted about them more so it was a no-brainer to change that, and I have.  I watched them play Barn on The Farm last year and since then if there’s ever a chance to see them… take me there! If you’ve not seen them yet… add them to your to do list. The fun comes in thick and fast.

Chloe Foy is a singer-songwriter based out of Gloucester, England with a natural songwriting ability that calls to mind the beauty folk talents of Laura Marling. The reason why is pretty obvious on her staggering lovely “Flaws,” a track taken from her 2017 EP “Are We There Yet?”

She will make the trip to Austin this year for SXSW but as we all can relate, the trip is very expensive. So Foy has taken to PledgeMusic to try and raise some funds and offer some nice rewards in exchange. You can find the campaign here and if you can spare the money, help her get to SXSW.

You can grab a taste of “Flaws” below and find the whole EP available to stream or buy at Bandcamp.

BARN ON THE FARM’s first year started in 2010 and since then this uniquely atmospheric small festival held in two barns on a Gloucester farm has had incredible success and with such impressive line-ups with Ben Howard, Ed Sheeran Bastille and Gabrielle Aplin. With the best of rising stars in Indie Folk, Acoustic and contemporary singer songwriters and the added indie or Synth rock bands on the line up it looks a superb weekend,the feeling you get the musicians enjoy the event as much as the festival goers.

this years Fat Angel must see acts include, AMBER RUN here is the wonderful track “Spark”

Irish singer songwriter Hozier who is about to become one of the acts of the year

barnonthefarm2015

It’s been a real struggle the past few weeks keeping this a secret, but finally we can let it all out into the open…
James Bay, the winner of the 2015 BRIT’s Critics’ Choice award will be returning to the farm to close this year’s festival on the Sunday night.
The Hitchin-born singer-songwriter first appeared Barn on the Farm back in 2013, playing a sunny mid-afternoon slot on the third stage. Since then James Bay has taken both the UK and global music scene by force, becoming runner-up on the BBC Sound Of 2015 list and winning a BRIT Award even before releasing his first album.

James Bay debut album, “Chaos and the Calm”, will be released on 23rd March and promises to be one of the finest albums of the year. This will also be James’s first ever festival headline .
performance.Joining James Bay on the main stage at this year’s festival, we are pleased to announce Jack Garratt, Rhodes, Nothing But Thieves, Port Isla, Osca and The Academic.

Foy Vance will be headlining the old Wooden Barn Stage, and we will also be introducing a brand new stage to this year’s festival, topped by no other than Amber Run.

Rounding off our first wave of artists we are also pleased to announce Chasing Grace, JP Cooper, Alex Vargas, Freddie Dickson And The Guard, Flo Morrissey and Louis Berry.
