Lunar Festival

Lunar Festival
Richard Shakespeare

Set in the fields of Tanworth-In-Arden, just 9 miles from Birmingham city centre, this psychedelic-minded festival takes place over three is located near Nick Drake's old home.

On the bill this year are audio-visual masters Public Service Announcement, Mali's desert-rock aces Tinariwen, Mark E Smith's The Fall, psychedelic post-punk warrior Julian Cope, the freshly-returned BBC Radiophonic Workshop and legendary Italian prog-rock band Goblin.

There are also late-night parties featuring the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Psychemagik and Higher Intelligence Agency. 

If you do want a bit of quiet, though, there's a chance to escape the main event and listen to Nick Drake's music on the man's own record player. Expect lots of artisanal and folk-culture activities as well.
