Having just rounded up its fourth successful year, Joefest is the modest, honest, intimate affair with music the festival scene has been craving. Overpriced, faceless festivals have had their day – this is where you’ll be spending your designated weekend for dancing, drinking and discovering that new artist you’ll have on repeat until December.

Born in a garden in Lincolnshire to celebrate, what came to be, a very special 18th birthday, was the first ever Joefest. The babble of family and friends who created the small affair for local resident Joe Davies now form the vital foundations of the event, with a bigger-than-back-yard capacity of one thousand party-goers. It’s the crème de la crème of start up stories, so accidentally cool you can’t believe they thought of it first.

On offer is a banquet of up-and-coming artists from around the county, as well as larger names each year. With two stages to choose from, and an after hours DJ set, there’s no shortage of tunes to keep you boogying until Sunday. Among the performers this year was an exciting land for the small festival; the Saturday headliner who attracted undeniable crowds to Stourton Estates, Brighton bred 80’s synth style pop group, Fickle Friends.

While you’re waiting for acts to begin around midday, you can grab a bacon butty for breakfast before hopping in a truck for your very own Deer Tour round the estate. Guests are invited to watch the herds be fed their morning meal. The event also includes a spacious campsite and on-site toilets, although the ‘shower’ isn’t highly recommended… being a bucket strapped to a wooden frame. There is, however, a fully functional and licensed bar, and multiple craft and food stalls from vegan curry to pulled pork nachos.

The bar has been well and truly set for future years of fun. To find out more, or to buy tickets for Joefest 2019, visit

  • This Month’s Theme

    The idea of talking about Christmas in September divides the nation, but we’re going to do it anyway, because the next issue is planned for release just in time for the holidays!

    In the past we’ve focused on the commercial side, and on entertainment, but this year we’re thinking a little differently.

    While we are still accepting content on any topic and still love to read all your reviews, we would like to put an emphasis on feelgood stories, things that can open our eyes or make us feel something, whether that’s advice on conquering a fear or goal, stories from real people in the community, celebrations and events, stories of experiences or foreign, far off places, or perhaps something as simple as a warming family recipe.

    Good luck, and happy writing! Content deadline November 1st.
