Preview: Somersault Festival 2015


So we’re just over halfway through the festival season and we’ve had some cracking experiences over the last few weeks, including Glastonbury, Barn On The Farm and Latitude. And up next on TFFT’s 2015 festival list is Somersault – a five day getaway of music, arts, food and adventure at the beautiful Castle Hill Estate in North Devon.


With just two days before the festival commences on the 23rd, we’ve put together a compilation of highlights and unmissable activities for those who are yet to plan their way around the festival. Firstly, the guys over at Somersault have pulled together a stunning musical lineup for the weekend ,which includes the incredible Laura Marling, Bombay Bicycle Club and Passenger as headliners on the main stage across the weekend.


The main stage plays host to many other TFFT favourites, including Angus & Julia Stone, Rae Morris, The Staves and Nathan Ball, but make sure you also head over to the Communion Stage, which will be showcasing some of the very best new talent over the weekend. The likes of Banfi, Flo Morrissey and Frances will serenade the afternoon crowds, before the likes of Lucy Rose and Amber Run play what will inevitably be fantastic evening sets.


Music at the festival stretches into the evening with late night forest parties and a variety of activities and theatre over at The Bandstand. Somersault is set to provide an all round inclusive experience for its festival goers -there’s so much to look forward to in terms of adventures, food and family friendly activities. From well-being workshops, outbound surfing trips to the coast, yoga at sunrise and big feasts, there’s a lot to take in over the five days!


However, taking at least one to the coast, only a few miles off site, should definitely make it on to your itinerary. For those heading towards Somersault as a family, the long weekend is set to be an equally adventurous experience for the little ones, including walks and story telling, as well as coastal surf lessons.


So, offering a concise list of highlights has proven rather difficult! But that can only be a good thing as Somersault Festival has so much to offer. In short, at this year’s event, make sure you catch at least a snippet of the main stage across the weekend, head to the coast, enjoy some good food and hope for lasting sunshine!
