For the last weekend in July I was lucky enough to get a ticket for Lounge on the Farm, Canterbury’s annual music festival. Having spent three wonderful years studying at the University of Kent closeby I was super excited to be going back to my second home town for a dose of music, good food and a few cheeky bevies! Another positive was that it was my Birthday on the Sunday so what better way to spend a weekend. The original plan was to spend the weekend down at Lounge on the Farm, however after celebrating my birthday on the Friday night and then being warned that our pop up tent would blow away in the predicted thunderstorms, we decided to do some shuffling round and head down for the Sunday instead. I was quite disappointed not to go on the Saturday but the Sunday more than made up for it!
It was a beautiful day, not a cloud in the sky and Craig and I got up early for our two hour drive down to Kent.
Lounge on the farm is situated on Merton Farm in Canterbury and takes place over three days every year. This year was the eighth year that the festival has been running and it’s just been getting bigger and better.
It tends to be a festival where the big names perform just before they hit the big time, for example, last year’s headliner was Emelie Sande. This year on Saturday the main act was Jesse Ware with other well-known bands such as Man Like Me and Tribes.
