Larmer Tree festival, which this year hosted acts including Jamie Cullum
and Tom Odell
in Wiltshire, England, will take a break in 2017 “to fully refresh both creatively and personally.”
In a joint statement festival directors James Shepard, Julia Safe, Rob Challice and Lucy Babb write: “After a truly amazing 26th festival, which we were all incredibly proud of, we have made the very difficult decision that we and the festival need to take a year off in 2017.
“Larmer Tree Festival will return in 2018 with some new and exciting developments.”
The weekend of July 20-22 has already been confirmed for 2018. This year’s 26th edition saw Cullum, Caro Emerald, Odell, The Stranglers and Calexico, among many others take the stage at Larmer Tree Gardens, July 13-17.
