LeeFest Presents: The Neverland, the rebooted and resuited experience from festival pioneer Lee Denny, will see a Saturday night headline performance from soul-pop songstress Lianne La Havas.
Ghostpoet, Shura, Roots Manuva, The 2 Bears, Submotion Orchestra and Little Simz have also been announced for LeeFest 2016.
Lianne La Havas said: “I am over the moon to not only be playing but headlining at LeeFest this year. It is a beautiful part of the country and I nearly share a name with the festival! Looking forward to having a sing song with everyone!”
LeeFest returns for its 10 year anniversary with an exciting new creation: The Neverland.
Organiser Lee Denny is promising “a magical panoptic Kingdom full of unabashed creativity, diverse personalities and serious partying!”
LeeFest 2016 will take place from Thursday 28th - Saturday 30th July at a top secret venue located near Tunbridge Wells, Kent, which will be announced nearer the time of the festival.
Now part of British festival folklore, it was in 2006 when Lee Denny, aged just 17, found himself home alone whilst his parents were away on holiday. Enjoying free run of the family house and, more importantly, the garden, he decided to build, with limited time and money, the ultimate garden festival for 150 friends, donating the money raised from ticket sales to the Teenage Cancer Trust. Lee Denny, rather modestly, called his creation LeeFest.
“My parents went away on holiday and said that we couldn’t have any house parties,” said Lee, talking to Virtual Festivals back in 2010. “We were all pretty bored sitting around at my house and decided that if we weren’t allowed to use the house we’d use the garden. Someone suggested a music festival and LeeFest was born!”
