Sunrise is back in Somerset this year with a fab line up. The festival-goers festival takes place at Gilcombe Farm, nr Bruton, from June 2 – 5. An uber-green festival with a laid back vibe this gem (it’s based on an organic farm for starters) features a mix of old favourites, including Lamb, The Beat and The Orb soundsystem to up and coming stars, such as Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit and Gabby Young and Other Animals as well as Eat Static, Banco De Gaia and Sieze The Day and more. Other exciting announcements include The Correspondents, an act which is creating a super-charged buzz on the dance music scene at the moment, with Mr Bruce, Mr Chuckles and their awesome stage show, outrageous dancing and drum and bass electro-swing fusions and Afrobeat reggae act The Soothsayers will be dubbing out with the horn section from the recent, highly acclaimed show, ‘Fela!’ about the life of Nigerian activist and afrobeat star Fela Kuti. With organically grown good vibes and conscious-party atmosphere Sunrise has 13 stages which will be showcasing a diverse range of musical experiences, from a folky knees up at the Spit n’ Sawdust to the dubby, hip-hop vibes of the visually stunning Chai Wallah’s Stage, alongside the audio visual extravaganza of the Solar Dance stage, Alchemy Chillout and speak-easy 1940’s, retro-cocktail-disco-casino at The Pussyfoot Lounge. Some say it’s like a mini Glastonbury, though we think this one puts Glasto to shame in terms of it’s eco-friendly efforts. Tickets £108+bf from www.bristolticketshop.co.uk
