Introducing Ringmaster Festival featuring Maximo Park and more

As the festival season draws to a close, September 28th 2013 will see the first Ringmaster Festival take place on the Whitbourne Estate in Worcestershire for an explosion of music and food meets a vintage circus.

This year sees Maximo Park, Mystery Jets, Deaf Havana, Swim Deep, Theme Park, Tall Ships on the line-up, who will be joined by rising stars Chloe Howl, Luke Sital-Singh, Thumpers, and in keeping with the festivals ethos of supporting upcoming talent, Laurel Canyons, Marie Naffah, Lewis Mokler and Tom Jarvis amongst others join the bill.

Set in the stunning Hereford & Worcestershire countryside borders, a place usually home to cattle, this years Ringmaster Festival will, for one day, be home to 6 big top tents, with the look and feel of a vintage circus (circa 1934) but with a focus very much on music.

With a shared vision and ethos of celebrating creativity in all forms whilst supporting the next generation running through from the festival founders and all the extended staff Ringmaster will be donating a share of £5 per ticket to their two chosen charities, Barnardo’s & Longlands Care Farm. There will also be a focus on being ‘green’, with the festival using local food produce and only allowing a certain number of vehicles on site, to reduce long term damage to the fields.

In addition to this year’s festival Ringmaster will be announcing and holding a festival warm-up tour, which will see some of this year’s fresh and upcoming lineup take to the stage.
