Barn On The Farm 2023 has announced its “Music of Tomorrow” line-up, featuring first-time festival headliner Holly Humberstone, Dylan, Olivia Dean & many more.
The three-day event will be held at Gloucester’s Over Farm from June 29th to July 2nd – last year’s rendition was led by Bombay Bicycle Club, Easy Life, Maisie Peters, and Griff, with the festival consistently seeking to promote UK artists on the rise.
Lincolnshire singer-songwriter Holly Humberstone has risen from the remote countryside to become one of the country’s brightest gems over the last 2 years. With a debut album set to arrive at an unconfirmed 2023 date, she is now set to make her first-ever festival headline performance. She is currently touring the UK, with a recent stop at Newcastle’s NX proving that “it’s impossible to put a lid on Humberstone’s potential”.
“Barn has a special place in my heart and I’ve made so many precious memories with amazing people there over the past few years,” Humberstone has shared. “Last year I was part of the Farm Band and performed a few songs with Flyte, Dylan Fraser, Maisie Peters, and my producer Rob Milton came out of studio hiding and played guitar for our newly formed band! It was the most fun and I am so so excited to headline the festival next year – it’ll be my first!! Can’t wait to see you there next summer.”
The reflective and ever-glowing Olivia Dean has been confirmed to join her, with an optimistic and fulfilling discography that includes the hopelessly romantic ‘What Am I Gonna Do On Sundays?’ EP, and its follow-up, ‘Growth’. On the news, she shares: “So many amazing artists are playing and I love farms too hopefully I’ll get to hang out with some goats.”
With the festival continuing to spotlight buzzy artists ready to burst into the mainstream, Barn On The Farm also features many of Dork’s Hype List 2023 picks – pop-rock star Dylan, Scouse noise makers STONE, and 16-year-old Londoner flowerovlove all join the upcoming line-up.
The introspective Wunderhorse, a moniker of Jacob Slater, will also offer up tunes from his recent debut album, ‘Cub’, which arrived in September. Rachel Chinouriri is set to contribute cuts from her 2022 EP, ‘Better Off Without’ – which Dork’s 4-star review described as, “heartbreakingly raw but brilliantly delivered” – as well a spread of follow-up singles.
