Redfest organisers have confirmed that this year’s festival will make its return to St George Park.

The event will take place on Saturday 4 August and will feature three music stages, a kids village, wellbeing area, performance tent, spoken word stage and a food and crafts market.

The headline act has been announced as Lack of Afro, aka multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Adam Gibbons. The headline sponsors will be Café Grounded and The Old Stillage.

In a statement on the festival website organiser Dominic Ljubic has stated that they still need to raise more money and that a new fundraising campaign has been launched:

“We’ve set a target of raising £10,000 from you – the amazing residents and businesses of BS5,” he wrote. “It sounds like a lot, but if everyone who comes to Redfest donates just £3, we’d be financially secure for this year and next.”
