Faraway Festival Wiston
Time & Location
About the Event
The Faraway Festival is finally here! Wiston Estate will host the West Sussex show this year on the 16th-17th July 2021. The opening night will begin with PoshFlix, a 1920's themed evening with Great Gatsby on the big screen, a Jazz/swing band setting the scene and bottomless Prosecco/Pimms at the bar! Fireworks and performers will really bring this baby to life and best dressed will win a prize.
For weekend ticket holders, Saturday morning will kickstart with Mimosas, breakfast and Yoga before gates open for day tickets at 11:00am. The MainStage will go live from 11:30am with a medley of acoustic performances, indie rock, folk rock (The Captains Beard - bring pirate hats), brass driven pop and funk band, 90/00's classics rock (Stacey's mum has been requested) and a string ensemble playing some of the best dance anthems to some BIG beats.
For the comic lovers out there we have teamed up with Dinesh Nathan ('one to watch' - Fringe Review), Sean McLoughlin (best comedian you haven't heard of - Time Out - Ricky Gervais support act), Stephen Grant (Komedia headliner) all MC'ed by the great Dave Fensome (who leads the late-night comedy at Brighton Fringe). The Gun Pub will be onsite with a large bar and will also host the Comedy Show under its canopy. Around the venue you will discover a Pimm's bar, Prosecco stand and Gin tent.
We have teamed up with an array of local vendors to bring a wide selection of food options from wood fired pizza, burgers and game meats, vegan options, loaded fries and many more.
These are all day events, so there are a range of different ticket options depending on which event you choose:
