Kelly Lee Owens: Who I'm excited about seeing at Farr Festival this year

04 June 2018, 15:15 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Ahead of her Farr Festival performance in July, solo producer Kelly Lee Owens explains why she's excited for the electronic music festival.

"I do remember particularly that Farr Festival stood out as it’s super electronic and has a really good line up. Especially for the UK, it will be one of the coolest lineups. I’m quite out of the loop when it comes to upcoming artists, so that probably means i’m going to discover some really good, electronic shit haha. I do remember a few names like the headliners.”

"I just love to wander around festivals and kind of listen to new stuff, and I think sometimes, hearing something for the first time live is the best way because there’s some kind of energy and essence that’s different to the recorded sound. That’s kind of why i’m pushing myself to make more of an effort at festivals to discover new sounds. It’s really the only way and the only time i have to do it. I’m excited because it’s a UK festival, it’s really chill for me as there’s not much travel involved and there’s no stress about it. I think i’ll spend quite a lot of time wandering around in between my set and getting there."

"Well yeah, Mount Kimble (pictured above); I went on a tour with them, and they were super nice to let me hang out and stay on their tour bus for like a week or so. That was the first time i’ve been able to tour the UK because the fees aren’t that great when you’re just starting out”

"I’ve never seen George Fitzgerald play but it should be sick. I’ll have to make a list by the sounds of it as there’s so many people that are playing [laughs].

"I’ll be intrigued as well to see how many women are playing at the festival. A lot of the artists seem UK based. There’s not many festivals in the UK that just focus on British talent. It’s wonderful when other festivals bring people over that you don't always get to see, but it’s quite special and quite rare for festivals to focus on people who are from that place, and allow them to be known and be heard."

Farr Festival takes place between 5-8 July in an uninhabited forest in Hertfordshire, UK. Find out more at
