Join Passing Clouds for an all-night technicolor rave in the forest to celebrate the Summer Solstice! In conjunction with Cloud Factory Adventures, we’ll be turning up the saturation on the Green Man and kicking off the festival season in style!
Deck yourselves out in your finest festival gear, people: we want to see you in all your megalithic day-glow glory - luminous wings, over-sized sunglasses, kigus, wellies and all - and let’s party through the night in the ultimate neon-Pagan fantasy festival!
Neon, technicolor, carnival, high-saturation-Pagan

As well as bringing in the summer with a heavy dose of rainbow-rave-coloured pomp and ecstasy, we’re bringing in the hottest bands from both sides of the hemisphere!
***SAM & THE WOMP***
Having toured the wold, conquered the charts (making them one of the first bands on the UK gypsy-Balkan scene to break the mainstream) and generally got the world womping, Sam and his crew are finally returning to their roots with this homecoming gig. Passing Clouds was host to some of their first shows and we're absolutely THRILLED to be welcoming them back into our loving arms. Make sure you get a spot at the front for what will be a KILLER set from this incredible band - live and loud as we know and love them!
The Balkanoes fuse Eastern European and Jewish folk music with a joyous energy to guarantee a Balkan bash of mammoth proportions. Moving seamlessly from traditional klezmer to gypsy grooves and unique takes on well-known classics (and the odd gangster rap…), The Balkanoes promise to keep you dancing all night long!
(Dub-Gypsy Looping Duo)
Hailing all the way from Melbourne, The Imprints are a violinist and a drummer with a taste for looping gypsy-electronica! Having performed across Australia, as well as the Netherlands, Germany and Austria, this high-energy pair are ready to conquer the UK and what better place to start than the summer party of the year?
***DJ SACHA DIEU***
Stranger Than Paradise legend and undisputed Godfather of Swing Sacha never fails to tear the dance floor a new one with his gypsy-swing-Balkan mashups, leaving us gasping and begging for more!
(Delirium beats from Mexico via Spain)
Making his Passing Clouds debut, our knees are knocking with excitement at the prospect of this European heavy-weight gracing our humble decks. Bringing us the heaviest bass, the deepest dub, neurotic gypsy-punk, Latin vibes and everything in-between, Gypsy Box is coming. And he wants nothing less than your SOUL.
