One day festival descends on Yeovil

“Our little west country thing” says Farmer Glitch, will feature live music and experimental art

Hacker Farm's Farmer Glitch has organised a one-day festival in Yeovil, Somerset, touting it as “deep darkest west country at its best!” The event will feature artists either residing or originating from the West Country and will include a pop up museum featuring fanzines and art from the 1970s punk scene – think The Mob and Chesterfields – along with fanzine workshops and various other installations that will be on display in the town throughout September.

Artists announced are Kemper Norton, Ekoplekz, Rainbow Unit, Normal Tea, CukoO, Ubiquitous Meh!, Invisible Eyes, 836, and REEL.

Wyrd Wild West will take place on 22 September with live music happen at RAOB Club from 4pm–12am. More information can be found on their website. A programme of films and talks is still to be announced.
