Here’s who’s playing and cooking at The Big Feastival

The family-friendly festival for food and music lovers returns to Oxfordshire in August 2020.

The Big Feastival is set to return in August 2020 and will once again feature a huge line-up packed with world class music, food and family entertainment.

Now in its ninth year, Blur’s Alex James hosts the event on his Cotswolds farm this August Bank Holiday, from 28 – 30 August 2020.

Alex comments: “This is now our ninth Big Feastival and I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to the farm. It is such a thrill to see how the festival develops and evolves each year and I have no doubt 2020 will be bigger and better than ever.”

The festival will welcome the BRIT-nominated DJ Sigala on headline duties on Friday night, for a set packed to the rafters with hits such as Wish You Well, Came Here For Love and Just Got Paid. 

Headlining The Big Feastival on Saturday night will be the legendary Nile Rodgers & Chic, responsible for timeless hits such as I Want Your Love, Le Freak and Good Times. 

Bringing the festival to a close in style on the Sunday will be the BRIT Award-winning Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, whose debut album Human was released to huge critical acclaim and commercial success in 2017.

The festival is also set to welcome performances across the weekend from the likes of Swedish pop superstar Zara Larsson, Leave A Light On hitmaker Tom Walker, Brighton pop maker Maisie Peters, rockers Reef, and loads more.
