Taking place on July 7th – July 9th in the stunning surroundings of Exmoor Park, Samphire Festival have bagged one of Bristol’s best groups for their already jam-packed line-up.
Young Echo will be making a rare festival appearance, with sets from members Neek, Ossia, Kahn, Vessel, Jabu, Ishan Sound, Manonmars, Rider Shafique, Bogues and chester giles. The announcement comes ahead of the new album from Jabu which is due out this summer.
Bristol continues its take-over of the festival, with record label Shapes hosting a stage with Felix Dickinson. Bristol Live Magazine favourites Ishmael Ensemble, Elder Island, Ardyn and Cousin Kula will also perform on the main stage.
Founded by couple Flora Blathwayt and Josh Beauchamp, Samphire festival raised a mammoth £43,000 on Kickstarter and went on to win Best Small Festival at the 2016 NOEA Awards. With Crazy P, The Correspondents and Resonators booked as headliners, there’s plenty to look forward to.
