BYLINE FESTIVAL 2-4 JUNE 2017

Woodstock for the Facebook Generation.

Byline Festival is launching a new festival on 2-4 June at Pippingford Park in East Sussex that is recapturing the spirit of festivals that had a sense of purpose and wanted to change the world like Woodstock in 1969. It is for anyone who doesn't want to take Trump, fake news, alternative facts or the rise of populism lying down.

Join John Cleese, Lenny Henry, June Sarpong, Hardeep Singh Kohli, Hugh Grant, Frances Barber, Bonnie Greer to debate and shape the future.

With Rap Battles with Don't Drop and Art Battles with Spraying Bricks the festival will be exciting and fun.

The London International Ska Festival is bringing a 1970s Reggae Sound System to the festival and Reggae and Ska DJs and bands. 60 other music acts are headlined by The Blow Monkeys along with DJs including Nihal, Milton Cato, Smutty, Paulo Hewitt and Niclas Jingryd. Friday night we have a punk night with the Members, Department S, Smutty the Rockats and special guest stars.
