7:02am Wednesday 26th February 2014 in News
TUCK into a bigger slice of summer fun as music and food combine for the third Big Feastival.
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver and Blur bassist Alex James present a stellar line-up that will see the likes of Fatboy Slim and Jamie Cullum entertain the crowds on James' farm in Kingham from Friday to Sunday, August 29-31.
Also confirmed to appear in the Cotswolds is American R&B sensation Kelis, performing songs from her aptly-named new album FOOD, indie folk heroes Stornoway, family three-piece Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, acoustic star Jack Savoretti and reggae rhythm masters the Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra.
Alex James said: “The Big Feastival gets bigger and better every year – I can’t wait. It’s going to be one hell of a party!."
Jamie Oliver added: “Three full days of great music, delicious food and good times for all the family – get involved before tickets are gone and it’s too late.”
Following last year's success, the duo will be getting the festivities started even earlier after adding a full Friday programme to the mix.
On hand to get everyone in the party mood, pop connoisseurs Guilty Pleasures will be hosting the main stage with DJ Sets from Sean Rowley and special guest appearances from the incredible Bjorn Again and Fleetwood Bac.
For the foodies, the AEG Big Kitchen stage will find Oliver joined by his culinary mentor and one half of the BBC’s the Two Greedy Italians Gennaro Contaldo and Le Gavroche's sous chef, Monica Galetti.
Heston Blumenthal’s protégé and head vhef of the award-winning Dinner Ashley Palmer-Watts will also be taking to the stage, alongside Two Star Michelin chef Nathan Outlaw and the inspirational Valentine Warner.
Barbeque extraordinaire, Christian Stevenson - AKA DJ BBQ - also returns and there will be a wide variety of gourmet food offerings to suit every taste.
Adam Henson’s Cotswolds Farm Park will feature once again to entertain all the family with all sorts of furry and feathered friends, where there is also the Little Dudes Den, the Big Top tent and a vintage funfair.
