NEVERWORLD, WHICH changed its name from Leefest this year (see Festival issue 33), has added two new music stages as it expects to attract 6,000 visitors to its Hever, Kent, site this August.

Set in woodland, the event aims to immerse its audience in experiences, including a treasure hunt and new festival areas. Headliners include Bastille, Clean Bandit and Declan McKenna.

The new stages are part of an organic expansion for the event, according to festival director Julia Lowe. “We’ve always planned growth around nature of the site,” she says. “With so many forests and lakes, we’re finding more space within the area that’s already there, rather than expanding the perimeter.”

Last year’s Leefest reached 5,000 people and organisers believe the current site could allow growth up to 15,000. The first three tiers of tickets priced £99-£119 have sold out, with only £135 tickets remaining.
