Following their most successful year yet in summer 2011, Blissfields Festival returns in 2012 to Winchester, Hampshire on the weekend of 29th June to 1st July, and the organisers have just announced this year’s comedy line-up:
With hosting credits at the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards and warm-up duties for Never Mind The Buzzcocks, occult “metalhead” stand-up Andrew O’Neill joins David Morgan, regular guest on ‘Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’, and organizer of the 5-star Edinburgh show ‘The Big Comedy Breakfast’, Marc Burrows, on this year’s Blissfields comedy line-up.
A comedy stage was launched at Blissfields 2011, this year expanding to include some of the most wonderful, weird names on your telly box… and soon to be on your telly box.
The festival has been applauded over the past 11 years for its attention to detail, creativity, family friendly atmosphere and wide-ranging musical and arts bill, but above all, for remaining at an intimate 2,000 capacity, following years of critical acclaim, stellar live performances from some of the country’s biggest live music acts, and sell-out crowds.
This year’s first music announcement was made last week with Imperial Leisure, Subgiant, The Mini Band, and now Dub Pistols, performing alongside yet to be announced headliners and over 100 other artists across four music stages. The festival will also feature a dandy revival of the Great British Summertime and the golden age of playground camaraderie and frivolity, with a full program of sports day shenanigans, a school disco and late night ballyhoo.
