Hideaway festival goes all weekend
Published 27/05/14

THE Hideaway Festival is back again this year with more acts spread over a whole weekend.

The festival, which began as a one-day event at a private estate in Fawley last summer, will feature more than 50 acts covering a wide range of musical genres, from classic rock to melodic folk and country via reggae, ska, indie and African grooves.

Internationally-known musicians such as Big Country, Alabama 3, Animals and Friends, Republica and Eddie and the Hot Rods have signed up to perform.

They will join a number of bands who played last year and are back again this summer, including Nubiyan Twist, Mellor, Maybe Neverland and the Silver Rays.

The festival will have music on three stages including an intimate acoustic stage and will also offer a showcase for local talent.

Acts including singer-songwriter Megan Henwood, theTom Michell Trio, Off the Radar and the Voodoo Funk Collective will perform in a line-up that has been hand-picked by the organisers.

Brett Fuller, founder of Hideaway, said: “I am excited that we are going from a one-day event to a weekend of music in just our second year.

“We are aiming to build on the great success of our first year but retain the intimate atmosphere and friendly vibe that everyone loved. I am particularly looking forward to Alabama 3 because they summarise what Hideaway is all about — infused dance grooves that are impossible to stand still to whilst cohering everyone together in the warm and friendly Hideaway spirit.”

He added: “This year, ask your boss if you can knock off a bit early on the Friday as we’re starting the weekend early. And, don’t worry about work on Monday as, like Woodstock, we will finish early Sunday evening. But don’t miss out on the early bird tickets as they are a real bargain at 75 for the weekend including camping, and there is only limited number available. When they’re gone, they’re gone.”

The festival will also feature local food, locally brewed real ales and an eclectic mix of market stalls.

A limited number of “early bird” tickets are now on sale for the festival which will take place Friday to Sunday, August 8 to 10. They cost 65 for the three-day weekend including camping.

For more information or to book go to the festival webiste www.hideaway festival.com

Tickets are also at In the Groove vinyl record shop on the Reading Road, Henley and the Chequers Inn at Fingest.

When the early bird tickets run out, the full price weekend tickets will be 90 including camping. Individual day tickets (Friday 25, Saturday 45, Sunday 25) and camping tickets (10 per person) are also available. Under 12s are free.
