FESTIVALGOERS hoping for a weekend of fun on the farm will be off the mark if they travel to Goatacre this summer, for Goatfest is all about the music.

The event, which bills itself as the hottest fest in the Calne area, is back for another year at the village cricket club.

Goatfest returns for its fifth year of music, beer, food and (hopefully) sun at Goatacre Cricket Ground.

Gates will open at 6pm on Friday September 6 for a night of performances from Burbank, Lake Acacia and Joe Johnson.

On Saturday, the festival opens its doors at midday for a long day of musical acts including: Jordan Marvell, Young Vintage, Sugar Mowtown, The Ukey Dukes, Clark & The Kryptonites, Andy Urquhart and Mambo Santamaria.

As well as the music there will be a mini beer festival with 10 real ales and 12 ciders along with speciality gins.

Hot food will be on offer with a festival curry, BBQ and traditional tea and cakes will be available in the Village Hall.

Much like other years, many festivalgoers will bring their tents, caravans and motorhomes to set up camp nearby.

As well as raising funds for the cricket club, two charities will benefit from the festival this year, Breast Cancer Awareness and Wiltshire Air Ambulance.

This year, for the first time, an Early Bird ticket is on offer until midnight on July 31, costing only £15 for the whole weekend, £5 for Friday night or £10 for Saturday.

The festival is run by Goatacre Cricket Club. Two years ago the event raised £5,000 to help fund the running of the club and £500 that was donated to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
