A NEW boutique music festival dedicated to the Dance genre will launch in Northumberland next summer – featuring lineup from some of the world’s best DJs.

The three-day camping event, which has been dubbed the “House of Barefoot Festival,” is scheduled to run from Thursday June 2 through Saturday June 4, 2022, in the Northumberland countryside.

As part of the festival, the event will host some of the biggest names on the international house scene, including tech-house pioneer Danny Howells, multi-award-winning Spain coach Henry Saiz, Bristol icon Nick Warren and Hernan Cattaneo ; one of South America’s most famous DJs.

Offering camping, glamping and pitches for caravans and motorhomes, the festival promises to offer a complete festival experience, according to the organizers.

The site will feature a stage with a state-of-the-art audio system, street vendors and several licensed bars.

Despite festival director Jonny Stobart keen to move beyond Covid-19 and the pandemic, he insisted that limited capacity will be in place for House of Barefoot to give festival goers plenty of ‘space.

Tech pioneer Danny Howells will perform at the Northumberland Festival next summer.

He said, “We want to keep the capacity at a level that means everyone has an amazing overall experience.

“We have no doubts that we will sell, and we are sure people will love the atmosphere and want to come back year after year.

“This event allows people to socialize, make new friends, enjoy a range of different styles of house music and, most importantly, dance. Our past events have brought together people of all ages – it’s all inclusive.

“That’s what it is for me; people who come together and enjoy the company of those they may never have had the chance to meet. ”
