PREVIEW: 110 Above FestIval

110 above

Nestled away over near Twycross is the site of the brilliant 110 Above Festival, an event that is staking its claim as one of Leicestershire’s summer highlights and one of the festival scene’s best kept secrets.

The festival in fact started as a small party around a campfire to celebrate the organiser’s birthday, and now that’s grown into a festival who this year will be hosting the likes of The Amazons, Sea Girls, Everything Everything, Palace, Hinds and more.

In recent years 110 Above has hosted the likes of Easy Life, Circa Waves, Fickle Friends, Sundara Karma, Pale Waves and many more. With a capacity that’s limited to around just 1000 people it’s a truly unique and special event for all attendees.

“Unpretentious and undeniably fun” is the atmosphere that they strive for and achieve year on year.

With a focus on new music the organisers have built a reputation for providing a place to discover your new favourite band as they showcase breakthrough talent alongside more established artists.

The festival site is at Gopsall Farm, a small farm near to Twycross Zoo. As well as 3 stages (The Commune Stage, Old Town Hall Stage and Gopsall Stage), festival goers can also look forward to pop-up performances in unique spaces, comedy, arts & crafts and more.
