With just three weeks to go LeeFest is nearing what is set to be their most exciting show ever. Jake Bugg, Annie Mac, and Kate Tempest will lead the charge of stellar names on the LeeFest bill.

Kate Tempest needs little introduction, the mesmerising spoken word poet smashed expectations of what success should be. She is an accomplished playwright, novelist, poet and respected recording artist who effortlessly weaves song, spoken word and rap into her shows.
Fellow headliner Annie Mac is renowned as one of dance music’s most supreme selectors. Annie is without a doubt one of dance music’s superstars and a musical polymath. Easily one of the world’s most hard-working DJ’s, Annie is known for her high octane live shows.
Recent lineup additions Parcels, Zak Abel, Hey Charlie, Yassassin, Yowl, Lissy Taylor join a tantalising roster including very special guests Wild Beasts,Tom Greenan, Wilkinson, Crazy P, Maribou State, Lewis Watson, Fickle Friends, Mr Scruff, Milk Teeth and many fast-rising names you need to know about.
Critically acclaimed collective Jungle will be bringing their brand new concept Jungle Presents to The Neverland. They will be taking over Wonderland’s Beach Stage with a personally curated lineup of their favourite need-to-know acts including Moxie and Makeness. Finishing off the night with a DJ set by the hosts themselves, Jungle’s eclectic selection is certain to provide a stand-out Neverland moment.
Aussie born and Berlin based five-piece Parcels have quickly garnered a dedicated online following thanks to their funk-pop feel good tracks. Their latest single Overnight sees a very rare production appearance from Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, aka Daft Punk.
Fresh from two sold out London shows, Zak Abel has fast become an unstoppable force and one of the freshest voices in the UK music scene.
British grunge-loving girl gang Hey Charlie join the bill, as do newly formed alt-rockers Yassassin, who tackle social issues with high energy, evoking the sound and fury of forebears the like of Le Tigre, PJ Harvey, and The Breeders. Peckham based band Yowl will appear alongside the already packed out lineup.
Since their very first festival in Lee’s parent’s back garden in 2006, LeeFest has become a thriving arts community that welcomes 5,000 revellers annually.
For those seeking a taste of avant garde performance, The Shift will be bringing their colourful show back to The Neverland this year. The Shift have become a fast rising sensation thanks to their outrageous colour fuelled drag shows. During the daytime you can try yoga in the sunshine to help you recover and unwind with Almond Blossom Yoga, or jump into immersive debates with the Real Debate Club.
LeeFest presents The Neverland is an immersive world that prides itself on attention to detail and silliness. You might discover your home with the Mermaids of Mermaids Lagoon, the Pirates at Skull Ridge or join the Lost Boys in The Neverwoods.
