Farr Festival is situated in Bygrave Wood, an idyllic forest located on an isolated farmland 10 minutes’ drive from the market town of Baldock, Hertfordshire. Isolated away from the hustle and bustle of ‘not-too-far-away’ London the site adds to the charm of the Farr experience; and whether you’re at one of the three larger stages or one of the four smaller ones – each location manages to instil that inclusive boutique vibe they continually boast with all the fine details included.
With another year passing Farr can add another notch to its successes with 2017 offering yet another efficacious outing with acts like Floating Points teasing us with his latest electronic forthcoming (An ARP3 Mk II), Helena Hauff playing some solid yet undisputable selections, Mr.G, and Sad City’s pulsating live sets and Young Marco’s wildcard choices all contributing to a large part of the weekend’s attention.
With a lot more hype around smaller dance music festivals in recent years, Farr continues to up there. The atmosphere almost feels like a community, the programming is unique and the forest is fitting. The festival will inevitably continue to grow and we shall be returning for more of the same hopefully next year. We’ve made an audio visual diary below for you to enjoy form this year’s Farrr – compiling a playlist of some of the stand out tracks heard amongst fields and stages at this years Farr alongside a photo album of some of our favourite moments – enjoy and see you in the woods 2018!
