Paloma Faith will headline Jamie Oliver presents The Big Feastival with Alex James.
The food and music festival – which raises money for the Jamie Oliver Foundation and this year will be held at Blur bassist Alex James’ Oxfordshire farm – will feature Paloma on Saturday September 1.
Supergrass frontman Gaz Coombes and the Cuban Brothers will also perform on the first day
Alex said: ’’I’m very happy to welcome such a great event as The Big Feastival to my farm. I’m particularly excited to host a festival that not only involves the local community, but also supports Jamie’s foundation. I can’t wait to spend a weekend on the farm surrounded by my two favourite things – food and music!‘’
Jamie added: ’’Roll on September! The Big Feastival was a great success in south London last year and I cannot wait to take this celebration of the greatest chefs, the best local produce and suppliers and some fantastic entertainment to a more rural location at Alex’s. Not only is Alex hugely passionate about food and music, he has always been a generous supporter of my Foundation, and I can think of no better backdrop for The Big Feastival this year.’’
A limited amount of early bird tickets for The Big Feastival will go on sale from 10am today (18.05.12).
