Preview: The Secret Festival

Are secrets ever kept secret anymore? Nearby to where I live there’s a secret nuclear bunker signposted to by every sign in a five mile radius. Or how about that secret escapes website? We’re all spammed by them on a rather frequent basis. 

So what do these two things share in common? Is it that secret escapes offers a trip to a nuclear bunker? Maybe. But more likely, is that you don’t have to be a Cluedo to realise that these are not genuine secrets.

Luckily the folks at The Secret Festival know how to keep a secret. Although, admittedly they’ve confirmed that the 2016 edition of the the festival will take place at Lotherton Hall, near Leeds on Saturday the 3rd of September. However, there is plenty of secrets still regarding it’s line up…

The event features post Brit-pop sensations Embrace alongside a host of surprise guests. I’m assured that the identity of which will remain a closely guarded secret until the day of event. Previous guests have included The Magic Numbers, Starsailor and Dave McCabe from Feeder- so despite the surprise, an excellent line up is guaranteed!

If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, the West Yorkshire festival even received two nominations for best small festival and the grass roots festival award at last year’s festival awards!
