2017 Headliners Announced
Molotov Jukebox are world-renowned party purveyors of contemporary world music and we will be welcoming them to Arlebury Park on 10th June as our 2017 headline band.
Fronted by Natalia Tena (who you may recognise from Harry Potter and Game of Thrones), Molotov Jukebox is arguably the highest profile act the festival has signed as headliners. Fusing an unrivalled onstage presence with the sunny sounds of carnivals from around the world, the band is an explosion of colour and energy, mixing violins, accordions, vocals and rhythm in a mixture of ska, latino, soul, funk and other jump-up styles. Molotov Jukebox fans are also fond of describing the band as ‘gyp-step’ (a mix of dubstep and gypsy styles).
They offer an unmissable live performance and are famed for their high-energy performances around the globe from the Avalon stage at Glastonbury to performances at Wilderness, Boomtown, Cambridge Folk Festival, Blissfields and Womad as well as sets at Vive Latino in Mexico, Eurosonic in Holland and Iboga Festival in Spain.
Over 25 other acts are being finalised over the coming months, but our annual ‘Party in the Park’ is planned to be more exciting than ever in 2017.
FIVE STAGES OF LIVE MUSIC
Rock • Pop • Indie • Blues • World • Folk • Dance • Jazz • Northern Soul • DJs & MUCH MORE!
Our extended layout means more for everyone: five stages of live music, including a Blues Jam Tent and ‘The Globe’ Theatre Tent, plus a packed festival village, a huge choice of local and international food stalls. The Ringwood Fine Ale bar is back, plus more cocktail and cider bars than ever will be quenching thirsts.
There will be FREE family entertainment throughout the day, including a silent disco, bungee trampolining, climbing wall, zorbs, Mayflower Musical Youth Theatre, craft stalls, a magic show, art workshops, storytelling, street theatre, a memory pod, skatepark, poolball and much more.
The festival is not-for-profit and money raised is given to regional, national and international music based charities and other good causes. With more music and activities than ever before, we hope to see many more festival goers, which will mean we can raise even more funds for worthy organisation.
