Farr Festival’s devoted team of designers have been working relentlessly over the last few months to morph together the offbeat idea they have for their new main stage, which includes the bringing together of 52 shipping containers arranged into a rectangle formation to fit 2500 dancers.It will also shelter a monumental custom-built L-Acoustics sound system, pulsating LED lighting rods and video mapping system.
This stage will dedicate to holding the unique live acts over the weekend, including Todd Terje, Booka Shade, Nao, Red Axes, Submotion Orchestra, Mungo’s Hi Fi, Jordan Rakei, SG Lewis, Shanty, General Levy and many more. Elsewhere, Farr will also play host to Omar-S, Craig Richards, Mister Saturday Night, Young Marco, Tornado Wallace, Sassy J, Music From Memory and Brilliant Corners.
