We’re busy setting up HOME in Dartington!

With just 24 hours to go till the ribbon is cut (not really!) on the 2011 HOME festival, we’re busy getting ready for the off. We’ve been working with the Arts at Dartington team on HOME for over six months now and are really excited it’s nearly here.

Producer Matthew Linley is already on site, pacing the site and glancing anxiously at the skies (seems the weather’s going to be great though – it’s been worth keeping our fingers crossed all week!), and others are busy packing for the journey to Dartington tomorrow.

The line up is a corker. We’re very excited about the line up: Suzanne Vega is headlining (one of only 3 UK shows this year – the others being Glastonbury and Hyde Park!), alongside: Songlines Best Newcomer nominees Tamikrest; Alejandro Toledo and the Magic Tombolinos; Sheema Mukherjee; Max Pashm, and Perunika.

Like festivals used to be when we were nippers (well, sort of…), HOME is that all too rare chance to get up close and personal with exceptional artists, and – as an added bonue – in the beautiful the Dartington estate.

Hope to see you there…. Don’t forget the suntan lotion!
