Grassroots Festival 2008


Lifestyle | Article

After taking a year off to gallivant around the country, the Grassroots Team are once again putting on a festival for all who want to come along for the ride.

It's being held just outside of Peterborough on the weekend of the 5th - 7th of September and it's looking like its gonna be a wicked weekend in a field.

Tickets are now on sale!! Tickets can be bought from the website www.thegrassrootsfestival.co.uk via Paypal, or, if you live in or around Peterborough, from The Glass Onion on Burghley Road.


Early bird tickets are on sale now and are 30 for adults (16 and over), and 15 for children (10-15 years), which includes on-site camping. Under 10's get free entry and a free smile on the door.

The early bird prices last until the 31st of July when the price goes up to 40.

Whilst being slightly bigger than in 2006, this years festival will still only have a capacity of 500 people, so you'll know pretty much everyone on site by the end of the weekend.

All the stages at Grassroots 2008 are going to be chock full of frequencies to twist, soothe, assault and vibrate your eardrums respectively.

The Freedom stage (main stage) will have live music ranging from dub to metal, folk to hip-hop, and stuff that just defies classification. Taking care of the other side of live music, The Troubadour Stage will feature acoustic acts from far and wide, coming to share their music and their vibe. There are more than thirty absolutely amazing unsigned & signed acoustic artists and check this? Sony have released a recent special signing to the Troubadour for Grassroots, This Is Unmissible!!.

GrassRoots 2008 will host two electronic music stages: The Playpen and The Circuit-Tree. The Playpen will be serving up the dancefloor side of things with various bits of Psychedelic music, Drum 'n Bass, Breaks, Deep/Tech-House, Hard Dance........ Whilst it's sister stage The Circuit Tree will be covering the Techno, Breakcore, IDM, Ambient and Dubbier side of things.

The Irie Stylie bods are festival veterans, having traversed the country and this year their coming to GrassRoots! Hosting a lush cafe serving vegan and vegetarian food (being cooked by the power of the Sun), an open-mic stage,and lovely vibes.

Another surprise at this years festy will be The Drawing Room. Which is exactly what it says it is, themed in a Victorian/burlesque style.

Throughout the weekend there'll be jam sessions, the 'jazz hour' and loads more.

One of the additions that Grassroots are most chuffed about is the 'Grasshopper Area'. A place for the kids to have as much fun as the adults! Parents will be able to bring their children and take part in various games and workshops. There will also be the Breathe Easy healing area to soothe and relax mind, body and soles/souls. There'll be Reike, Indian Head massage and Sound Therapy as well as other healing area. There will also be a few stalls selling nice festy stuff.

For full line-ups for all the stages check the website for more info www.thegrassrootsfestival.co.uk
