The summer’s top music, food and family festival, Jamie Oliver & Alex James present The Big Feastival returns to The Cotswolds with its best line-up yet from 29 – 31 August.

Alex James said, “The Big Feastival gets bigger and better every year – I can’t wait. It’s going to be one hell of a party!”
Jamie Oliver added, “Three full days of great music, delicious food and good times for all the family – get involved before tickets are gone and it’s too late!”

Back for its third year on Alex James’ farm, DJ Fatboy Slim and jazz-pop star Jamie Cullum will headline the three-day event.

Indie folk heroes Stornoway, family three-piece Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, acoustic star Jack Savoretti, reggae rhythm masters The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra and genre dodging Molotov Jukebox will also join Big Feastival favourites Norman Jay MBE, The Cuban Brothers and Duke performing across the weekend. More music acts are still to be announced.

New to the festival this year, Jamie and Alex will be getting the festivities started early with an adiditonal day of music, food and family fun on Friday 29 August. Getting everyone in the party mood, pop connoisseurs Guilty Pleasures will be hosting the main stage with DJ Sets from Sean Rowley and special guest appearances from the incredible Bjorn Again and Fleetwood Bac. Further details to be announced soon.

It wouldn’t be The Big Feastival without the hottest chefs providing their top tips in live demos. Joining host Jamie Oliver on the AEG Big Kitchen stage is his culinary mentor and one half of the BBC’s The Two Greedy Italians Gennaro Contaldo and Le Gavroche Sous Chef Monica Galetti, fresh from the MasterChef: The Professionals kitchen. Heston Blumenthal’s protégé and Head Chef of the award-winning Dinner Ashley Palmer-Watts will also be taking to the stage, alongside Two Star Michelin chef Nathan Outlaw and the inspirational Valentine Warner. Also returning to The Big Feastival is barbeque extraordinaire, Christian Stevenson, AKA DJ BBQ. In true Big Feastival style, there will be a whole host of gourmet food offerings to suit every taste with more details to be revealed soon.
