Acts being kept secret until the festival.
The small but perfectly formed In The Woods festival – organised by the perky and freewheeling leftfield London pop quintet Laurel Collective – returns for its eight consecutive year. Punters are promised an experience as far removed from "warm pints of foamy Carling in a copoorate mudbath" as it's possible to get, which can only be a great thing. It takes place in a secret woodland location (enchanted, of course) near London, revealed only to ticket holders. The line-up for this year's festival won't actually be announced before the festival – an innovative anti-hype manouevre – but past acts like Micachu and The Shapes, AlunaGeorge, Anna Calvi, Alt-J and more cutting-edge acts on the cusp of fame should give you an idea of what's on offer. Plus there's an all-night silent disco, film screenings, a massive bonfire, locally sourced food and ales, and much more. Get on this one quick: there are fewer than 1000 tickets.
Top secret intimate woodland party. Surprise us in style, please!
