A free music festival will showcase up and coming talent from Boston and beyond.

Harry Violet’s Harfest will be held at Sunnyside Farm – between Kirton and Kirton Holme – on Saturday, September 7.

The festival features indie musicians and undiscovered talent from across the country, spanning an eclectic range of genres from folk to rap, dubstep to hardcore punk.

The event is now in its fourth year and according to organisers was set up to counter a lack of cultural opportunities for young people in Boston.

Last year, through word of mouth and Facebook, it drew an audience of more than 250.

This year, Harry Violet hopes his newly recruited team of helpers will build upon this success and expand the festival further.

Harfest was inspiredby tales of 90’s alternative rock bands in California driving far out into the desert to hold parties with bands plugging into generators.

This has been translated agriculturally, in true Lincolnshire style – the stage itself being a veg trailer.

Entry is free – with people encouraged to help with donations. Applications for bands/acts are open until August. Visit www.harfest.tumblr.com for more details.
