EppyFest – the eclectic music festival run by Ian Fairholm of the Epileptic Gibbon Podcast, now in conjunction with Stephen Lambe and Huw Lloyd-Jones of Sonicbond Promotions – is happy to announce full details of its 7th edition. The festival will begin on the evening of Friday 27th July 2018 and continue on Saturday 28th beginning at around 1pm at its new home St. Margaret’s Hall, Coniston Road, Hatherley, Cheltenham GL51 3NU

Festival organiser Ian Fairholm talks about the new-look festival:

“I am delighted that my collaboration with Stephen and Huw has allowed the festival to spread its wings, by bringing in headliners of greater stature, so I am thrilled to have booked the legendary international psychedelic and progressive rock band Gong and the hugely popular English contemporary music ensemble – the North Sea Radio Orchestra. I am also excited to be able to bring back some familiar names in Sanguine Hum(acoustic), Neil Campbell and Firefly Burning, while making their first appearances will be Fractal Mirror (stripped down), Bristol-based band LORD OF WORMSand our Saturday special guest Doris Brendel, who has been described as a modern day Janis Joplin.”

Sponsor ticket (including an EppyFest 2018 T-shirt) at £60 and standard Friday / Saturday joint tickets priced £40 are on sale now. Day tickets will go on sale in the New Year.

Stephen Lambe discusses the new venue:

“After quite a search, we settled on St. Margaret’s Hall in Cheltenham as the new home of the festival. It’s a superb space, with room to grow and great on-site parking. It’s also nicely positioned so that it’s close to Cheltenham train station, 5 minutes from the M5 and not far from Cheltenham Town Centre with its wealth of accommodation.”

The line up:

Friday 27th July

Neil Campbell

Saturday 28th July


North Sea Radio Orchestra
Doris Brendel
Sanguine Hum (acoustic)

Firefly Burning
Lord of Worms
Fractal Mirror (stripped down)

More details to follow very soon!
