showcasing the best of the south west
Somersault  Festival 2015

Somersault Festival 2015

Laura Marling, Bombay Bicycle Club and Passenger will headline Somersault Festival which takes place at Castle Hill in North Devon 23-27 July.

The South West’s most talked about festival was a sell out in its inaugural first year and is back with an incredible line up, new chefs, high octane adrenalin adventures and late night parties under the stars.

Billed as a summer holiday experience, Somersault takes advantage of its unique location close to both Exmoor and the North Devon coast to offer every imaginable outdoor adventure from coastal rafting and paddle boarding to riding, rock climbing and volleyball.

During the day head out for surfing, canoeing and mountain biking or stay on site for yoga and wellbeing, falconry, archery and zorbing.

There are long-table feasts from Valentine Warner, Fifteen Cornwall, River Cottage and The Ethicurean. And DJ Jo Whiley hosts a vintage themed garden party and fashion show – tea and bellinis followed by an interview with a surprise festival artist.

Music promises to be spectacular this year. Alongside the headliners we can’t wait to see Australian duo Angus and Julius Stone, West African funk and disco act Ibibio Sound Machine, reggae legend Jimmy Cliff, Imelda May, The Correspondents and The Staves.

Communion hosts a second stage, back in its beautiful riverside setting again this year, with performances from up and coming artists, a tented smokery and whisky and ale bar.

The legendary Chai Wallahs are overseeing late night parties in the forest area with appearances from Norman Jay and DJ Yoda, projections onto the trees and a mix of reggae, hip hop, funk, soul, house and electro to keep the party raging until dawn.
