A quiet corner of the Cotswolds countryside won’t be so quiet on the last weekend in August, as Jamie Oliver and Alex James will be hosting their Big Feastival, a unique three-day spectacular of music, food and fun times on Alex’s idyllic farm. Looking at the line-up, it’s obvious The Big Feastival has both a chef and a musician at the helm. The music isn’t a side-act for the food, or vice-versa – both are given equal billing, making this a true celebration of top tunes and top grub. From start to finish visitors won’t want to miss a minute of The Big Feastival. Haçienda Classical will be getting the weekend off to an electrifying start with nostalgic dance songs accompanied by a full classical orchestra plus special guests Mike Pickering, Graeme Park, New Order’s Peter Hook and Happy Mondays’ Shaun Ryder and Rowetta on the night. Pop favourite Olly Murs tops the Saturday night bill with his chart-topping hits, and the festival will come to an epic close with British giants Madness on the Sunday. The weekend will also feature funky hip-hop trio De La Soul, X Factor winner Louisa Johnson, along with Gentleman's Dub Club, Dodgy and Feastival veterans Cuban Brothers and Norman Jay MBE. The Big Feastival will be showcasing the very best of up-and-coming musical talent with the likes of Frances and BETSY taking over the stage, and an exciting new partnership with BBC Music for 2017. Top chefs, restaurateurs and firm family favourites will be sharing pearls of culinary wisdom in the NEFF Big Kitchen including: Rick Stein and son Jack; two Michelin star chef Nathan Outlaw; celebrity television chef Cyrus Todiwala; acclaimed restaurateurs José Pizarro, Mark Hix and Robin Gill; Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown and many more. For those who are keen to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in, the NEFF Cookaholics Cookery School offers a hands-on experience where visitors learn how to get creative in the kitchen. What's more, the NEFF Little Kitchen, led by TV favourites Tom and Henry Herbert, provides interactive cookery classes to encourage budding young chefs to try something new. Festival-goers who have worked up an appetite with all of that entertainment will enjoy sampling the very best in British Street Food. With a huge range of award-winning delights, every taste bud will be dazzled! This year’s event will feature festival staples and spectacular newcomers including: Smokestak, listed in Time Out's Top Ten Best Street Food; crab enthusiast and Virgin StartUp Foodpreneur winner 2015, CLAW; cult London burger joint Patty & Bun; and Crèma Caravan with their award-winning desserts that are guaranteed to sate every sweet tooth.
