There will be two stages at The Lunar Festival. The Northern Sky stage will act as the main stage whilst there will also be a smaller stage in the River Man Bar which will host the last and most liveliest act of the day to bring the festival crowd into the night.
Once the music has ended there will be film screenings and a mini rave on site to keep the party going into the early hours. There will also be a fire pit where musicians and campers can gather round to see the night out.
Soul Food Project will be hosting the food tent where we’ll be cooking up Jambalaya, Pulled Pork, Burgers, salads, stuffed ciabattas and some cheeky cocktail creations (think Bloody Mary’s // Tom Collins // Hot Toddy’s and beyond!).
This unmissable festival marks the start of a great season of events for the Moseley Folk group and we’re stoked to be a part of it!
