It’s tricky for a dance music family-friendly festival to balance the party and family elements. I think The Shindig Weekender managed this well, giving a great mix of the two.
It was a lovely warm bundle of arty-party fun, with a fantastic kids’ field to boot.
While I don’t think it will appeal to parents who want to keep their kids away from this kind of partying, I thought it was great for parents who look for a bit of craziness and proper dancing in their festivals. There was also plenty of space and chilled out areas for families to hang back and relax while the children ran around.
