A music festival in East Staffordshire will fund an ambitious sustainable farming project. Future Field Festival, run by eco-farm chiefs at the Farm on the Hill project, will be headlined by sensational roots duo Breeze and Wilson.
Also on the bill will be Doveridge-based roots act Big Stone Gap, vocalist Kelly Edwards, acoustic act the A52s and sought-after band Isaac and Co.
The weekend's action will include free camping from Friday, September 22 to Sunday, September 24. The music and a range of other activities will run on the Saturday from noon until "late".
A Farm on the Hill spokesman said: "Here at Farm on the Hill we are extremely passionate about our research into sustainable and organic farming methods that not only produce crops but also regenerate the land and its natural ecosystems.
"In order to continue this vital research, we plan to go into the new year with a new field – a 'future Field, a multi-layered food forest filled to the brim with fruiting shrubs and herbs.
"This project will include education spaces with herb gardens that are open to the public and also have the capacity for freely bookable outdoor classrooms.
"We want the community to be involved in this project from day one and so we present to you Futurefield at Farm on the Hill.
"This event, filled with local bands, food, drink and lots of kid-friendly activities aims to raise money for our project, and we would love to see you there.
"Entrance is free but we will have a voluntary donation bucket on the gate, and all proceeds will all go towards this amazing cause."
The event takes place at Farm on the Hill's site in Prestwood, around 10 minutes' drive from Uttoxeter. More information is online at www.farmonthehill.co.uk
