A festival that’s been dubbed the “mini- Glastonbury ” by Radio 1’s Annie Mac is returning to a farm just outside Surrey in August.
Craig David , The Vaccines and The Mystery Jets headline the four-day Neverworld festival at John Darlings Farm in Hever , just seven miles from the Surrey border at Dormansland .
Known for its spectacular immersive setup and ‘magical kingdoms’ designed in the woods of Hever, Neverworld is more than just a music festival.
With the lineup now announced – except for a ‘secret special guest’ – and tickets going fast, SurreyLive has put together a guide of everything you need to know.
Neverworld takes place from August 1 to 4. You can get into the festival and campsite from midday on Thursday, August 1 but the main festival arena opens at 5pm that day.
Timings have not yet been announced on the Neverworld website but the lineup features the artists below (look out for artists with a * next to them as they are SurreyLive’s top picks) :
