Featuring the likes of First Aid Kit, Susanne Sundfør, Nadine Shah and more, the Saturday of the festival’s line-up is given over to female artists in a move intended to honour one hundred years of women’s suffrage. Also appearing across the weekend will be Jake Bugg and Tune-Yards, both of whom will headline the main stage, Chris Wood, Seamus Fogarty and a host of other musical and comedy talent. After a year-long hiatus, 2018’s event will be the 27th edition of the festival and will also feature the brand-new Larmer Spa.

Speaking about today’s announcement the festival’s Creative Director Sarah Dennehy said “It’s an honour to be involved with this longstanding, independent, super cool little Festival. And stoked to announce our first wave of acts; but there’s much more to be announced over the coming months, with one or two surprises!” Larmer Tree festival takes place in Larmer Tree Gardens on the border between Dorset and Wiltshire from July 19th-22nd.
