LeeFest is no more. Having started as a back-garden knees up, the festival has become one of the best upstart ventures of the festival season. Now though, the team behind the successful fiesta are making a promise to raise the bar once more with new project ‘Neverworld’. Coming to Tonbridge, Kent in August 2018, the new, exciting and immersive experience will offer music lovers the experience of adventuring into their wildest dreams with 11 stages catering to 5,000 festival-goers.

Neverworld will be jam-packed with exciting worlds like the Mermaid Lagoon, which will be delivering the finest garage, house and disco hooks; The Goldmine; a converted mine complete with eight stacks of funktion one soundsystem for bass-music lovers, and Hooks Rock punk and grime bar. It’s an ambitious new project from the team, who, having already played host to artists like London Grammar, Bastille and Years & Years, have also won many industry awards like ‘Best Grassroots Festival’ and ‘Best Independent Festival’.

LeeFest/Neverworld founder Lee Denny spoke about the upcoming festival, saying “The story of LeeFest and its origins in my back garden all those years ago was the seed for something incredible, but it’s time for the next chapter. When we started this crazy adventure, we did so by pushing personal boundaries and creating something awesome for our friends. However, now the story is much bigger that use.” He ends by talking about the success of LeeFest, “As the LeeFest community has snowballed, so have our ambitions. Instead of just a festival, we want to build a whole new world for our community to thrive in. A world that encourages growth and creativity. Discover your inner Pirate, Mermaid or Lost Boy. Welcome to Neverworld; a place you never have to grow old!”

Neverworld takes place next summer between August 2nd – 5th August. For more information, visit the Neverworld website.
