We recently announced our partnership with new greenfield beer and music fest, Bigfoot Festival… and we couldn't be more excited. So excited, in fact (I mean, who could blame us after an entire summer with zero festivals?!), that we put together this list of all the things we're looking forward to when the big weekend in Warwickshire rolls around.
On the weekend of June 18-20 finally arrives, we'll be in good company with a host of other breweries signed on to make the event the most incredible beer and music festival the UK has ever seen. Oh and we also booked an entire stage of incredible music there.
We'd be lying if we said we weren't counting down the days to when we can all be together, in a field, with our mates and with a cold beer in our hands.
Check out our roundup list further down this blog and watch Signature Brew co-founder Sam McGregor give you a sneak peek of what we've got planned for Bigfoot Festival 2021.
THE SIGNATURE BREW STAGE LINEUP IS KILLER
(IF WE DO SAY SO OURSELVES…)
Signature Brew booking manager Charlie Simmonds has been hard at work hitting up some of the most exciting bands around to play The Signature Brew Stage, featuring Dinosaur Pile-Up, Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, The Wytches, Big Joanie, Chubby & The Gang, Bob Vylan, JOHN and more still to be announced.
We're looking forward to having a cold beer in the sunshine and watching the likes of these guys hit the stage…
OH YEAH, AND THE REST OF THE LINEUP IS INCREDIBLE…
Outside of our stage, the rest of the Bigfoot line-up is looking absolutely killer.
With five stages of quality music curation covering a variety of genres, everyone's going to find something they love. Personally, we're looking forward to seeing the likes of Primal Scream, Fat White Family and Hot Chip. Frontman Alexis Taylor played an incredible sold-out and socially-distanced show at the brewery last summer, so we really can't wait to have a pint and watch the Hot Chip Megamix go down.
…AND THAT'S WITHOUT EVEN MENTIONING FRIENDS OLD & NEW FROM ACROSS THE CRAFT BEER WORLD
What's more, we all get to hangout with friends old and new from across the brewing world, from Verdant to To Øl , Deya to Northern Monk and so many more. We can't wait to hit their bars and finally catch up with everyone after 2020…
We'll Be Pouring Our Latest & Greatest Beers…
We really can't wait to be in a field together, pouring our latest beers for you to try, fresh from the brewery. No warm cans here, just cold beer straight from the tap, surrounded by your mates.
Here's a throwback to when we hosted out own stage and poured our beers at Slam Dunk 2017…
…AND GETTING BANDS TO HELP US ON THE BAR TOO
If you've hung out with us at festivals like Slam Dunk or Arctangent before, then you'll be familiar with our band pourings. What better way to enjoy an ice cold pint than to be served it by your favourite artist? Who knows, maybe we'll even get a band to play an impromptu set on top of our shipping container again like Haggard Cat's legendary 2000 Trees Set…!
PLUS, WE'RE GOING TO EAT EVERYTHING
No crap burger vans here. Instead the festival's food offering is a celebration of everything that tastes good with a pint. Patty & Bun, 10 Greek Street, Club Mexicana, Original Patty Men, Verdant Seafood Bar, Waylands Yard, The Farm Stratford, Big Apple Hot Dog & More. We're really excited to pair our beers with some mouthwatering food.
From fire-cooked bbq to vegan tacos, to immersive dining experiences, Bigfoot promises to have everything you could want for an amazing weekend of eating.
