Lounge on the Farm is a local music festival on Merton Farm in Canterbury which caters to all ages. Held every July, we were able to enjoy good weather the last two years (although maybe it was too hot in 2010?!) The festival is all about good up-and-coming acts, comedy, and film with many stages hosting different types of music with the largest crowd gathering in the cow shed. It’s a family friendly, all ages’ festival with something for everyone.
The food is all locally sourced with notable mentions being the hog roast, lamb burgers (from the farm itself), amazing burritos, and my favourite – Haji Baji curry. Local brewers were also involved with providing beers and ciders.
Hay bales, sofas, and picnic benches dotted the fields for all to just relax and enjoy the entertainment. Also on offer were massages – we even had a fishy pedicure! Where 2,000 little fishes nibbled (and tickled) the dead skin off our feet! Strange but enjoyable!
Enjoy the music, the drinking, the different fields, and the great food. Don’t forget your camping chair, bottled water, sunshade, cream… and maybe a funnel? Tickets for the weekend were under £100 last year and the website for 2011 will be kickoff in February.
