Festival in the Field Day: The Fratellis + Music + Entertainment for all the Family
Adult full day ticket (tier 3): £45 / Child full day ticket 4+ (all tiers): £15
30 June 2018 | 12 noon – 11pm
Venue: Festival in the Field
Playful, punchy and purposefully relaxed, The Fratellis will be bringing their thrilling mix of razor-sharp guitar riffs, air-punching piano stabs, falsetto vocals and melodies you could hang your coat on to the Grassington Festival in the Field Marquee.
Jon (vocals/guitar), Barry (bass) and Mince Fratelli (drums) are roaring into their second decade with a fifth album In Your Own Sweet Time that plays to their strengths while also pushing their sound in vivid new directions.
They have teamed up once again with six-time Grammy and Mercury nominated American producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, The Kooks, M83, Belle & Sebastian) who previously collaborated on smash-hit Costello Music, an album that lasted 83 weeks in the charts, won The Fratellis a Brit Award in 2007 for ‘Best Emerging Artists’, and launched The Fratellis to stratospheric critical and commercial heights.
Who can forget the deathless and dauntless Chelsea Dagger or the unbelievably addictive Whistle for the Choir?
This will be a celebratory and giddy performance not to be missed and will top off a whole day of fun for all the family featuring a fabulous mix of music with bands from all over the country, food and drink, magic and excellent entertainment, starting at 12 noon with festivities continuing until 11pm.
Other bands throughout the day include
CoCo and the Butterfields. An English indie-pop band, from Canterbury, Kent, who, since their inception in 2012, have spent much of their time on the road, touring the UK and Europe, selling out headline shows and featuring at many major festivals.
Sam Kelly & The Lost Boys. Having already recorded and produced over 10 acclaimed records, had multiple live sessions and airplay on BBC Radio 2 and 3, and his music regularly featured on Sky Arts and Sky Sports, it’s hard to believe that 24-year-old Cornwall-based folk singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Kelly has only been performing live for 4 years. With folk luminaries such as Kate Rusby, Seth Lakeman, and Cara Dillon waxing lyrical about Sam’s live set, it seemed fitting when he was awarded the prestigious Horizon Award for emerging artists at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2016 at London’s Royal Albert Hall. They have also been nominated for ‘Best Group’ at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2018.
…….with more artists and entertainment for all the family to be announced. Watch this space.

What do the different Tiers mean?
The tiering of the ticket price simply means that the cost increases as we get closer to the event. So, it rewards you for buying early. There is no difference in the actual tickets themselves or the offering – it is just the price. And it only applies to adult tickets and not for tickets for children. A child’s ticket is for U16s, ages 4-15.
Parking is extremely limited on site. Please make alternative arrangements and use the Festival Bus or public transport where possible. We will be listing all car park details in due course.
