Fieldview Festival: Simple pleasures
Share This Article:
Fed up with over-commercialised, wallet-haemorrhaging festivals? Tired of watching methedrone-induced teenagers brawling with security guards? If so, Fieldview Festival may be for you. Situated in the heart of the Wiltshire countryside Fieldview epitomises grassroots festivalling. Organised and run entirely by volunteers the festival opened its doors to a little over a thousand campers this year for four days of sun, cider and soulful syncopation. I went down to check it out. On the surface Fieldview is like many other small rural festivals. The site, a converted farmyard, consists of three stages; all made from locally sourced and protected wood, and is centred on a love for all things musical. Aside from the on-stage entertainment are a selection of local arts and crafts boutiques and also a host of tasty food outlets including a smoothie shack, barbeque and bar offering up a variety of potent west-country brews.
