Lime Wood - BEEN & GONE

Saturday 23rd July 12pm-11pm

Glamping Available

The festival

Lime Wood - 23rd July 2022

Make the most of a sunshine-soaked Saturday in the fields surrounding Lime Wood in the New Forest; this is an open air party for everyone! Grab your party pals, dig into some seriously good field food, sip on something chilled and dance the day away.

Classic festi-food is order of the day across the festival, but if you fancy tucking into something a little heartier why not try feasting with Angela in the restaurant or booking a table at “The Apprentice” Tent?

Make the most of the festival vibes and spectacular surroundings and sleep under the stars in your very own bell-tent. Cosy up in the glamping village, tuck into Chef Angela Hartnett’s 3 course Italian-inspired field supper, and dance like no one is watching to good old fashioned rock and roll!

Earth Wind & Fire Experience Featuring Al Mckay

Earth Wind & Fire Experience Featuring Al Mckay

Veteran, Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum recording artist Al McKay has a long history of creating songs that feel good to the body and soul.

McKay continues in this tradition with “Heed the Message,” his latest offering from his band Al McKay Allstars. In the spirit of McKay’s eight years in Earth, Wind & Fire from 1973 to 1981,“Heed the Message” is rich with impressive harmonic backing vocals, ample moving saxophone runs, driving funk bass grooves and uplifting lyrics: “Don’t think twice when your feeling is right,” “Try meditation,” and “Love is the calling.”

McKay is working on a new album. In addition to working with some of his bandmates, he’s also in talks to collaborate with a few of the music business’ hit making, award-winning song writers and producers.

The tour set pays homage to Earth, Wind & Fire. When the band went on an extended hiatus in the 1980s, McKay created Al McKay Allstars and reunited many original Earth, Wind & Fire band members, including Verdine White, to resume playing together.

The Al McKay Allstars line up includes: Al McKay (guitar), Tim Owens (vocals), DeVere Duckett(vocals), Claude Woods (vocals), James Manning (bass guitar), Ben Dowling (keyboards),David Iwataki (keyboards),Anthony Beverly(drums), David Leach (percussion),Joel Nunez(saxophone), Luis Gonzales (trumpet), Omar Peralta (trumpet) & Shaunte Palmer(trombone).
