Yes, this is spectacular news indeed. We, Like You are going to be throwing our partying weight behind this brand new festival. This will be the best 3-day party of the summer, so get involved...

We, Like You Golden Down will take place from the 15th to the 17th June in Black Bush Valley on the Matterley Estate near Winchester in Hampshire. Complemented by beautiful hills and plush woodland the festival will be an incredible artistic playground, and promises party-goers a feel-good three days.

Black Bush valley has never been used to stage a festival and we chose it exactly because of the magical areas within it. The chill out area will be housed within a stunning beech wood overlooking the valley, whilst the dance tent will be in a magical woodland setting on the opposite side. The main stage will be found at the head of the valley offering superb views for the audience. And all this with a campsite within easy reach of the action with lots of cool bars, great food, toilets and showers.

Organised by likeminded festival-lovers with a simple mantra to put on a brilliant festival with a capacity of only 5,000 Golden Down will certainly be a magical, musical Mecca that is a must… provided you are over 18!

Taking the festival back to its glorious roots, the event has a prominent musical narrative, with guests being entertained throughout. Artists will play from noon onwards and continue into the festival’s late night celebrations. However, the entertainment doesn’t stop there as revellers can enjoy Golden Down’s delights well into the early hours of the morning.

A handpicked selection of brilliant musicians will warm up the festival site during the afternoons; Submotion Orchestra, Floating Points, Lucy Rose, Stealing Sheep, Slow Club, Portico Quartet, DJ Ease (from Nightmares on Wax), Time & Space Machine, Adrian Sherwood (DJ Set), Clean Bandit and Lorca are also confirmed.

As evening dawns the next wave of enviable artists take to the stage, with Friday welcoming Ghostpoet, The Herbaliser, and ethereal headliner Four Tet. Saturday evening will see MOBO award winner Roots Manuva headline, with critically acclaimed Hercules & Love Affair and Mount Kimbie. Occupying the evening slot on the final day of the festival is America’s rising star Thundercat, Berlin’s Apparat and the UK’s own Dub Pistols all headed up Jamaica’s legendary Lee Scratch Perry.

Late night at Golden Down will showcase some of the best DJs in the Dance Tent, including house legend Kerri Chandler, tech/house aficionado Portable, and the forward thinking Pearson Sound; along with ‘footsteppin’ Julio Bashmore, self-confessed ‘Galactic Funk’ DJ Space Dimension Controller, Leeds supremo Midland, and the genre-bending Ben UFO.

As well as crafting the perfect party atmosphere, chill out time at Golden Down will be unparalleled. There will also be a broad selection of fantastic bars on offer supplemented withaward-winning fresh food at fair prices, plus big welcoming camp sites, plenty of toilets and washing facilities.
