The Ferret’s legendary event is bigger and better than ever, with three days of live music, arts and beers from around the world.

The city centre pub will be turfed wall-to-wall, with hay-bale furniture for that whole get down on the farm, outdoors-indoors vibe.

From 8pm until midnight Friday, and noon until 2am Saturday and midnight Sunday, the pub is set to become the next best thing to a Pilton farm for lovers of eclectic electric and acoustic sounds and music in general.

Dozens of bands and solo performers will play over the course of three days, including Adam Shaw, Pinstripe 
Pigeon Band, Kagoule and New York Tourists who will be arriving at the pub fresh from supporting Status Quo at Hoghton Tower.

With DJs in beer tents out back, the Ferret’s famous dogs and burgers sizzling, and a host of other confirmed attractions – including live graffiti art and circus skill workshops – this party is one not to miss.

Tickets available from Seetickets, Wegottickets, Skiddle and over the bar. Day ticket £6, Friday ticket £4, weekend £10.
