Music festival with a magical old-school feel
WYE Fayre is a music festival with a magical, non-commercial and old-school feel at the Withersdane Hall, Wye in July.
Organisers have plans for 130 acts performing on five stages over two days to a capacity crowd of about 7,000 people.
The programme features Mercury nominees, up-and-coming unsigned bands, and established international acts playing a great mix of folk, rock, blues, roots, Americana, indie, electronica, raw grooves and psychedelia.
There will also be real ale and lager, wine and cocktail bars, food, a marketplace, an al fresco record shop, an alternative healing and therapies tent, and acres of space for free camping and parking.
Wye Fayre 2007 is on the site of last year’s Wye Blues festival, but this has now expanded the programme hence the name change.
Organisers include some of the people from last year like Andrew Shore and Nabeil Salama, both of whom are doing PhDs at Wye campus.
Additions include music cura- tor Will Rees, who lived in Wye as a boy, and waste management consultant Mike Webster, who was born and brought up in the village and recently returned from a six-month assignment in the Solomon Islands.
Adult weekend tickets will cost £45 or £25 for a day, 13- to 17-yearolds are £15 and under-12s get in free if with an adult.
There are limited camper van tickets also available.
