Audio Farm have announced their One Tribe Festival and its incredibly impressive line-up. The Waveform Transmitter’s Ste Knight can barely contain himself.

The crew behind Audio Farm, an intimate northern festival, have just announced their initial waves of artists for their One Tribe venture and we can safely say this festival is going to be one of the most enjoyable the summer is likely to see.

It isn’t often you get small festivals dropping line-ups the likes of which would have Awakenings quaking in their boots, but somehow One Tribe has managed it.

The organisers have announced a seriously enviable line-up for the five-day festival that is sure to set the Cholmondeley Castle Estate in Malpas, Cheshire, alight between August 3rd-8th.

The picturesque setting plays backdrop to the event which sees an ultra-rare 24-hour music policy in place, so if you’ve got it in you can dance for 5 days solid (although we do suggest you take breaks at least every 48 hours to save on blister plasters) you can.

The festival organisers are no newbies when it comes to arranging events of this nature. They have previously fathered the Audio Farm festival, as well as hosting nights in Manchester‘s Sound ControlIslington Mill, and they have also curated artists for the Dugout at Festival Number 6.

One Tribe is a festival with a strong cultural and socially responsible ethos. It is a truly independent event, with funds being donated to The Green Paws Project, a charity that helps prevent the mistreatment of vulnerable wildlife on a global scale. Expect a lot of peace, love, and unity at One Tribe, as these are the core values to which the organisers adhere.

In terms of artists, well…where do we even start with this. The line-up is nothing short of astronomical, as artists from across the globe and spanning from one end of the musical spectrum to the other are set to take to the stage(s) to entertain the crowds over the five-day period.

There will be techno from Glaswegian heavyweights Slam and Detroit’s very own Juan Atkins. DJ Hype and Calibre will be repping the d&b corner, while electronic maestro Radioactive Man will be dropping a live set (as long as he plays ‘Ave That we’ll be happy). You can check out the full line-up (up to now) on the flyer at the bottom of the page.

There will be tonnes of other hi-jinx to get up to during the festival too. There’s loads of workshops and crafts, as well as kids activities for those who want to bring their bambinos along for the ride. Holistic and alternative therapies will also ensure that your relaxation needs are taken care of.

Liverpool’s very own 303 will be getting involved in organising a party on one of the days of the festival, and they will be joined by plenty of other crews such as Hit & RunMeat Free, and Freerotation, amongst others.

Tickets are priced at a mere £95, which we’re sure you will agree is a complete and utter bargain. One that should be quickly and greedily snapped up before someone else gets there first. Do that, here.

This looks like an absolutely killer festival. See you in a field, Tribesfolk.
