Lunar Stage & Northern Sky Stage
Placed side by side and with performances alternating, our stage set-up will mean you won’t be traipsing around the festival site from one stage to the other to see your favourite acts. Simply turn your head to the left or right to watch each stage – easy! Plus, with all the sets being staggered, none of our acts will clash meaning there’s no reason to miss any of the acts you want to see!
Above all else Lunar is a music festival and those of you that have been before will know our line-up is well crafted and eclectic with absolutely no space fillers. 2018 will be no different, expect to see the best in Psychedelia, Electronica, Americana, World / Roots and all sorts of genre defying but fundamentally “great” music.
The Crow Bar
A Bar by day with a large wooden dance-floor hosting Dance Classes and DJ’s, and later on a Club Night venue open till 3am. The Crow Bar will serve Draught Ale, Cider and Lager alongside the Lunar Cocktail range. It will take you right through to 3am every day with high calibre DJ sets for those who want to continue the party once the live music finishes at 11pm.
Just outside the Crow Bar the Village Green will host Circus Cabaret, Dance Performances and Classes and Theatre. Here you’ll also find our Fine Wine and Fizz caravan.
Our film programme has something for all tastes and ages. On the Lunar Stage LED Screen we’ll be showing Children’s films between 9am and 12pm.
After 11pm when the last live act finishes we have stimulating programme of film and visuals that you can watch while sitting around the Fire. Sound will be played through speakers by the Fire so you can keep warm and enjoy some late night Audio – Visual fun. During the day our Film programme moves to the Misery Saloon.
Pink Moon Meadow
There’s so much going on in this field its hard to summarise.
Sync Ed are back to organise the Sports Field – there’s a full packed weekend of Sports to tire out our younger guests. Alongside we have a Skate Ramp with lessons and demos. There’s all sorts of Craft Stalls and Workshops in this field not to mention the Travelling Barn, Breakfast Café and Misery Saloon.
Next to the Skate Ramp at the top of the Pink Moon Meadow lies the infamous Misery Saloon. For Over 18’s only and with a strict No Smiling rule this miserable bar hosts Whiskey, Gin and Rum tasting sessions. Each day its also home to a matinee´ of thoroughly depressing film. Only for the lost souls!
The heart of Lunar, the Fire is lit on Thursday and with help from our guests its kept going right through till the Monday. From here you can enjoy Live Music on the Lunar Stage in the day and after 11 you can relax and watch the film and visuals on the LED Screen. You’ll find impromptu Fireside acoustic sessions and talks late into the night. On the Sunday the Fire becomes the focal point for the Procession.
Umberslade Children’s Farm
Has an exciting array of activities including handling baby chicks, rabbits & guinea pigs, exploring the pig sties to see the cutest piglets, bottle feeding lambs or calves, riding one of the ponies around the farmyard, hand milking the goats, tackling the indoor Egg Splat cannons or riding one of the John Deere Tractors. You can also enjoy the two adventure play areas specifically designed for different age groups – and be sure to try some of the delicious meals, snacks, fresh coffee and home-made cakes in the Farmhouse Café.
