Bigfoot Festival, the "UK's first ever craft beer festival" is still powering ahead with plans for this summer by revealing Primal Scream and Hot Chip Megamix to headline the three-day festival this June.

Intending to debut last year, the festival was pushed back for evident reasons, but the likes of Fat White Family, Maribou State (DJ), and Baxter Dury will return having been announced as part of last year's lineup, with A Certain Ratio, Erol Alkan, and Warmduscher joining them.

Being a craft-beer orientated festival, there's plenty of popular contemporary breweries involved including Verdant, Two Tribes, and East London's Signature Brew, the latter of which will sponsor a punk stage hosting Dinosaur Pile-Up, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, Chubby and the Gang, and Big Joanie among others. 

Alongside the announcement, Bigfoot Festival's co-founder Greg Wells said: “I can’t think of a better way to recover from COVID, Brexit and Trump, than for us all to get together in the great outdoors at the height of English summer time, drink locally-made world-class beer, and watch one of the all time great bands.”

Despite ongoing uncertainty about live music this summer, maybe there should still be cause for optimism. Fingers crossed.

Bigfoot Festival 2021 takes place at Warwickshire’s Ragley Hall on 18-20th June. For more information on tickets and for further lineup announcements, check out their website here.
