Dance, Live Music, & Arts Festival
(where we play all day, and dance all night)


Chilled in a Field, 2015 Tiny Festival Runner Up2014 Gold Award Winner & 2013 Silver Award Winner, is a favourite of Festival Kidz because they have managed to retain the friendly festival vibe while creating a wonderful safe place for children to play. Due to its tiny size the children are free to roam around, make friends and explore while the parents can chill out and relax. There is live music, workshops and activities, local real ales and ciders, DJs and a relaxing Tea Tent so all tastes are catered for.

We are excited to announce that Chilled in a Field has a new home: The Hop Farm, Kent

Nestled on the Kent / East Sussex border with oodles of flat grassy space, secluded woods, proper toilets, hot showers, miniature ponies and lots more for the kids.

Chilled in a Field

Grown from the ’90’s London party scene they are a small, independent festival for grown up ex-ravers and their kids – people just like you, and us!  With free activities for children and adults all day, bands, musicians, artists, science, theatre, performances and, of course, awesome dance music from some of the UK’s top independent labels.  Ale festival bar, local beer and dozens of ciders, bubbles and cocktails, and mountains of street food.

They’re a not-for-profit social enterprise run completely by volunteers, so you can really feel the love.

Tickets are capped – to keep the festival feeling small and lovely – and it sells out every year.  Bring friends, bring children, and see for yourself why they have won our Festival Kidz awards three years running!

We can’t wait to play all day and dance all night in a field!
