Watch a Band With a Beer in Hand

Are you one of those teenagers the threw house parties when the parents were away? How big were they, how far did they go? However successful or popular your house raves were, I don't think you could ever beat Lee.

At the age of 16, Lee booked a number of local music artists to perform in his garden, and invited all his mates round. Inevitably he got caught, but somehow he was still allowed to throw another party the follow year. With more and more guests arriving, he moved the party bigger and bigger venues, until his back yard eventually transformed into a farm yard.

LeeFest takes place at Highams Hill Farm, which is just fifteen minutes from Croydon and Bromley, or within an hour of London Victoria Station. The festival is suitable for families, with children 12 and under going free. Teenagers are 50, and adults 50-80. As it is a three-day event between the 11th-13th July, camping is available, and includes showers, toilets, food, and entertainment.

This years line-up not only includes music from bands like The Crib, Frightened Rabbits, and The Magic Gang, but there will also be poetry, comedy, film, and just pure silliness.
