Barn on the Farm festival recently announced the addition of more artists to its line-up for this year, including Saturday night headliner, Bombay Bicycle Club. Plus, The Vaccines make a return as special guests, and Cavetown will be performing a one-off special acoustic show. North London’s Bombay Bicycle Club’s melodic, guitar-led music aims to be the ideal fit as headliner for the Saturday.
Their fifth studio album, ‘Everything Else Has Gone Wrong,’ was released in January 2020, when the band reunited from a 6-year hiatus. They have since released a live album, ‘I Had The Blues But I Shook Them Loose – Live at Brixton.’
The Vaccines make a return as special guests on the Saturday with their indie-rock. They last played Barn on the Farm at the 10th Anniversary edition back in 2019. Their fifth album, ‘Back in Love City,’ made Top 5 in the UK Charts; they also released a new 6-track EP this month entitled, ‘Planet Of The Youth.’
In contrast, Cavetown, aka, Robert Skinner is a 23-year-old singer-songwriter from Cambridge, who garnered a young fanbase back in 2018 for his bedroom-created music. His debut album, ‘Sleepyhead,’ reached Top 20 in the Billboard Americana/Folk albums chart. In January 2022 he released two singles, ‘squares’ and ‘y 13’, and in February collaborated with another Barn on the Farm artist Beabadoobee, on the track, ‘Fall in Love with a Girl.’
Formed 12 years ago, Barn on the Farm is an independent gathering of music fans who congregate on an actual working farm in Gloucester. The festival is spread over three stages (The Wooden Barn, Outside and Main).
