New for 2008 is Kents Zoo Thousand And Eight Music Festival. 20,000 revellers are set for the grounds of Port Lympne Wildlife Park, Hythe, Kent each day to party in 100s of acres of landscaped gardens, fields and wild Animal Park.
Across the main stage and marquees the festival will bring together over 100 live acts, bands, DJs and stage shows. If all that gets too much festival-goers are able to go on the Zoo8 Safari to see the Animal Parks rhinos, tigers, elephants, cats, monkeys, lions and some of the worlds rarest gorillas.
The event is set to become the South Easts biggest festival with indie, dance and alternative entertainment and it will help raise money for the John Aspinall Foundation, a charity that protects and breeds wild animals. Camping will be available for the three-day event.
