Maverick Festival 2011

Easton Farm Park was built in the late 1800s and in 1974, became the second Farm Park to open in the UK. It was within the grounds and surrounding Suffolk countryside of listed historic buildings that Maverick Festival was set. Friday 1st to 3rd July saw Sorazora exhibit at this collection of the best in roots music from both sides of the Atlantic.

The setting was beautiful and had a very family friendly atmosphere. In 2010, The Guardian newspaper voted Maverick as one of the top ten small festivals and it was very clear to us why it had been chosen. The range of musicians and performers provided something for everyone and we thoroughly enjoyed our time on the farm.

The festival was blessed with warm weather and it actually felt like summer. I just wish June to August had more weekends like this!

A campsite is provided. For those of you who don't have the luxury of a campervan and don't get on too well with guy ropes and tent pegs, there is the option of renting a tipi that will be waiting for your arrival.
