Lee Denny, who started LeeFest as a back garden event in 2006, has announced that the festival will now be known as Neverworld.

The new event will feature 11 stages and three ‘realms’, and aims to welcome 5,000 festivalgoers to the site on John Darlings Farm, Wilderness Lane, in Kent.

LeeFest has previously seen acts such as Little Simz, Young Fathers, London Grammar, Ghostpoet, Wild Beasts and Annie Mac performing.

Lee Denny commented: “The story of LeeFest and its origins in my back garden all those years ago was the seed for something incredible, but it’s time for the next chapter. When we started this crazy adventure we did so by pushing personal boundaries and creating something awesome for our friends. However, now the story is much bigger than us.

“As the LeeFest community has snowballed, so have our ambitions. Instead of just a festival, we want to build a whole new world for our community to thrive in. A world that encourages growth and creativity. Discover your inner Pirate, Mermaid or Lost Boy. Welcome to Neverworld; a place you never have to grow old!”

Neverworld will take place 2-5 August, with tickets available now from www.neverworld.co.uk.
