Jacks Festival Preview and Competiton
- Published on Monday, 09 July 2012 17:01
One of the few benefits we’ve seen from the 2012 Glastonbury festival break this year is the emergence of some new and exciting boutique festivals across the country. These smaller festivals often offer something fresh and unique from the usual list of larger counterparts.
Jacks Festival is one such festival; a boutique festival set deep in the countryside of Kent near Benenden. Positioned ideally within the beautiful White Chimney Woods in the ‘Garden of England’, the exact location of the festival is only revealed to those who purchase a ticket, further adding to its mystery.
Musically, Jacks will be promoting local up-and-coming talent alongside some of the worlds leading electronic artists. Northwest London’s ‘Cola Wine’ outfit will be hosting the likes of Krafty Kuts, The Nextmen and DJ Luck & MC Neat representing the best in Reggae, Funk, Soul, Disco, Hip-hop, Garage and Drum n Bass. Flux and Wolfstock will be joining forces in an electronic extravaganza with their tent headed up by Crazy P, KiNK, Deetron, Audiojack, Huxley, Andre Lodemann and Jonny Cade.
Jacks Festival, however, is first and fore mostly about its intimate atmosphere. Offering so much more than a musically sound lineup, Jacks will have its own Shisha Garden Tent, sun-soaked paddocks, locally brewed Cider and an amazing crowd. They are also giving away £1 from every ticket sold to local charity ‘Hospice in the weald’.
