Moovin Festival is back once again in 2017 and promises to be another boutique bass, funk, soul, reggae, house, jazz, and d&b gathering for real music lovers. With big hitters like Roy Ayres, Black Grape Gilles Peterson and Roni Size all set to play, this truly promises to be the best edition yet.
Taking place at the eco-friendly Whitebotham farm in the stunning countryside in Compstall, you find it through a magical canopy of trees, past a lake with waterfowl greeting you, and a breathtaking gorge welcoming you at the entrance. Whilst the line ups are big the capacity for it all is limited at 3500 so as the promoters feel that by keeping it intimate is what makes the festival so special it keeps it friendly and personal and stages include the Barn Stage, a large open sided cow shed with bales of hay to relax and chill on, as well as sound systems throughout the site that are guaranteed to knock your festival wellies off.
Independent throughout and with a counter cultural feel and devotion to booking the freshest acts, Moovin Festival is a laid back way to catch an ecelectic mix of favourite acts as well as exciting new artists. It's about making new mates and discovering new sounds; it's a place to enjoy ethically sourced foods and cocktails, to try some holistic healing treatments and enjoy circus performers, festival fun games and surprises and really forget the outside world for a magical weekend.
Musically many bases are covered, with the godfather of Neo Soul Mr Roy Ayres making a rare UK festival apperance and he will be joined by Shaun Rider's Black Grape who have a new indie dance album coming in summer. Bristolian d&b legend Roni Size will be performing a brand new live hardware show to celebrate 20 years of his game changing album New Forms.
