Blissfields 2015

This week sees Blissfields 2015 kick off, and Dirt Cheap Mag will be there to cover the festivities, enjoy the vibes and (hopefully) the good weather!

Now in its 15th year Blissfields has grown in scope, if not in size, with an intimate audience of only 4000 and with over 160 acts playing this must be one of the most packed lineups this year! Big on green values the festival encourages litter pickup with each ticket purchase, and features a wide array of acts and activities beyond the musical offerings; including arts & crafts, yoga, lectures, film screening and circus performances.

The setting, in rural Winchester, has to be one of the biggest draws – surrounded by beautiful hills and wooded areas this is the perfect location for a relaxing and family-fun event. With this years event themed ‘Somewhere in Time’ now’s the chance to get creative with some wacky costumes – aliens, cavemen and knights come out to play!

You can still purchase tickets (at a very pocket friendly price of just £95 for an adult weekend ticket) here.

Stay tuned for the full report to come soon.
