New Forest Festibelly returns to charm revellers

Bournemouth Echo: Hudson Taylor Hudson Taylor

DUBLIN duo Hudson Taylor will top the bill on the Saturday night of Festibelly, which takes place in the New Forest this weekend.

The group – brothers Harry and Alfie – are on the verge of a big breakthrough and supported the Rolling Stones at Hyde Park last year.

The brothers hope to follow in the footsteps of the festival’s previous exciting acts including Bastille, Ghostpoet and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

Hudson Taylor join a stellar line-up for this year’s event including reggae legend David Rodigan, The Cuban Brothers, Skinny Lister, Dems Wild Smiles, Mighty Oaks and Femme. Other names to watch out for include Amber Run, Mausi, Wild Smiles, Ginger & The Ghost, Laurel, Death Of Pop and Lexy and The Kill.

The creme de la creme of untapped south coast talent, who featured over Festibelly’s series of ‘local’ shows during April and May, include The Plastic Dots, The Golden Age, Luke Ferre, Damn Beats and Princess Slayer.

Closing the festival main stage on Saturday night, Hudson Taylor follow in the steps of Festibelly’s previous breakthrough acts, including Bastille, Willie Moon, Ghostpoet and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, to name but a few.

This promises to be one of the last chances to catch this band in an intimate festival setting.

Following the main stage both nights, the Silent Disco will see Kengo (The Cuban Brothers), Late Night Tales DJs, Cat Lovers DJs and winners of Amazing Radio’s DJ competition playing until early morning.

Over six years, Festibelly has established itself as one of the UK’s most charming, intimate and grassroots festivals.

This year’s event will feature a brand new bar stocked with festival tipples – from craft ales to cocktails – and a new dining experience will be offered for those wanting to get off their feet and indulge in an extravagant three-course feast prepared and hosted by a range of New Forest firms.

It takes place at Undershore in Lymington on July 11 and 12.
