FOR THIS YEAR’S INAUGURAL STOWAWAY FESTIVAL
Stow.a.way – n.
To hide aboard a vessel to gain passage to another land…
Stowaway Festival have announced that The Staves and Elder Island will join fellow headliners Orbital and Quantic (DJ Set) for their inaugural three-day festival, happening 19-21 August 2022. Stowaway have also announced the line-up for their comedy stage, headlined by Russell Kane and Suzi Ruffell.
A secret world to discover with music, comedy and performing arts across multiple stages, Stowaway is your new favourite festival. Set in picturesque Buckinghamshire countryside with ancient woodland and lakes, there will be hidden parties, banquets in the woods, wild swimming and canoeing, wellness & relaxation, kids’ activities, and artisan food & drink, including beer from the on-site Blackpit Brewery.
Comment The Staves, “Especially after the last couple of years we can’t wait to headline Stowaway and be back on a festival stage!”
Elder Island add, “Excited to be playing Stowaway this year! We’ll be out exploring the festivities and soaking up the Buckinghamshire countryside. Plus got to have a move and a groove to that incredible line up.”
The music line-up also includes Nightmares On Wax (DJ Set), Norman Jay MBE, Erol Alkan, Roni Size, Luke Una and Ishmael Ensemble plus many, many more. Stowaway offers great value with limited remaining Tier 1 tickets available at £109, and there are glamping packages available via Hotel Bell Tent.
Created in 2017 as the Festival Of Beer, 2022 sees the festival relaunch as Stowaway with a mission to deliver the perfect weekend antidote to the trappings of the modern world – combining the very best in contemporary culture with wellness & family activities and food & drink from all corners of the world. Dance the night away in beautiful surroundings with internationally renowned musicians and DJs. Feast at a woodland banquet. Chance upon a hidden party in the woods. Blow away the night’s cobwebs with a refreshing dip in the lake while the kids paddle past in one of our canoes. Made by friends, for friends – Stowaway is a secret world for you to discover.
“We originally created The Festival of Beer as a way for our friends, and friends of friends, to get together and have a great time in our beautiful woodlands, and as a way of promoting the Blackpit beer we brew here on the farm,” says festival founder Duncan Wheeler. “We’ve learned so much over the past five years and the festival has grown and grown. We’re so excited to relaunch as Stowaway and can’t wait to welcome new friends to this very special place.”
