So what is it?

Noisily has picked up the alternative electronic music ball right where Glade festival dropped it. Two years in they have already achieved quite a feat, giving us a lavishly decorated woodland playground hosting a myriad of artists and producers offering up three solid days of progressive techno, psychedelic trance, glitch hop, drum and bass and everything between.

Who is it for?

There is no denying Noisily is a niche festival, but with its few thousand creative and colourful people it certainly makes for one of the friendliest weekends out there. Strike up a conversation with just anyone and you’ll see why – this is a very welcome trait that is becoming more of a rarity amongst the mainstream festivals.

Should I go?

In a word, yes. There is still some fine tuning to be done, however the British festival scene is riddled with examples of rapid growth and loss of (dare I say it) soul. I am sure we've all sat next to the inevitable “remember what this place used to be like” conversations. Well, for Noisily, now is the time - there is real passion at the heart of this festival gem and the atmosphere will blow you away.

Highlights and eccentricities

• Watching the Victor Ruiz light up with main stage with precision German techno and lasers taken straight from the Tron gaming grid.

• Friendly banter and a crash-course in music production from the good chaps from Bassport.fm and their excellent gazebo stage.

• Wading through a thick fog of dreadlocks for some psychedelic Grouch stompage in the sunshine.

• A rather mental Sunday rave-up in front of the Tree House Stage with Captain Flatcap, Dutty Moonshine & Deburban Poison that even managed to sucked a few security in.

• Bicycle powered smoothie blending and having a tiny hat pimped for the cat on our top hat by Gemma at pimp my hat.
