English folk rock band Levellers have been announced as the first headliners for next year’s Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival, taking place at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm from 13 to 15 September 2024.
Now in its eleventh year, Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival is one of Cornwall’s most popular festivals. Super early bird tickets have now sold out, with a limited number of early bird tickets remaining.
Formed in Brighton in 1988, Levellers are no strangers to performing at UK music festivals, headlining Glastonbury Festival in 1992 and again in 1994. Now in their 35th year, the band is still releasing music with their most recent album, Together All The Way, joining their strong discography in March 2023.
Levellers will bring their anarcho-punk roots to Little Orchard at one of Cornwall’s most beloved venues, Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm, and are guaranteed to end Saturday night at this charming Cornish party with a bang.
Featuring big live bands, Orchard Silent Disco, BBC Introducing Stage, Dragonfly Acoustic Stage, plus a host of exciting activities such as Rattler Olympics, the Zen Den Wellbeing Tent, and Mount Hawke Skate Ramp + DJ workshops across the three-day event, as well as a huge range of ciders to sample, there’s something for everyone to get involved in.
Other acts announced for Little Orchard Cider & Music Festival 2024 include festival favourites The Wurzels who will be playing Friday night, Land of the Giants, King Dinosaur, and Cyderfex with Friday and Sunday headliners still to be announced.
Event directors Ben Hall and Ian Whittaker commented: “We are both huge fans of Levellers so we’re over the moon to have them headline Little Orchard 2024.
“Having a band which has headlined Glastonbury not once but twice at one of our festivals is an honour and we know visitors are going to be in for a treat with their performance.
“We are also delighted to welcome The Wurzels back to Little Orchard, they are always great fun to have involved and at this stage, it is hard to imagine the festival without them!”
A limited number of early bird tickets are still available. Ticket options include camping and non-camping weekend passes, plus the option to park a campervan, caravan or motorhome on site for the weekend, and start from £70 + booking fee for adults and £30 + booking fee for children. Under 4s are free.
Visitors looking for a more luxurious festival experience, or just prefer glamping to camping, can opt to sleep in a bell tent or shire hut. Standard weekend tickets can be upgraded for £30 + booking fee to allow guests to become a CIP (Cider Important Person), giving them access to proper toilets, a private bar and a chill out lounge throughout the festival.
