Larmer Tree Festival is very excited to
announce that musical superstars Amadou
& Mariam will be bringing their vivacious
fusion of pop, blues and Malian music
to the Main Stage, topping the bill on
Saturday 14th July. Plus, there’s more
rapturous laughter set to bring the festival
alive when The Inbetweeners’, Greg
Davies, headlines Thursday night’s comedy
in the ARC.
Having toured with Coldplay and U2
and jammed with musical heroes David
Gilmour and Johnny Marr, married musical
duo Amadou & Mariam have wowed
and won fans around the world. They’ve
performed at a Nobel Peace Prize concert
in honour of Barack Obama as well as
played at the last two FIFA world cups.
They’re renowned for their exquisite song
craft, Amadou’s thrilling blues guitar and
the magical interplay of their voices.
Adding to the captivating cocktail of
show-stopping music on Saturday night,
newly booked Caravan Palace will be
entertaining audiences with their energetic
blend of French Electro Swing and Gypsy
Jazz. Their catchy tunes are guaranteed
to get festival-goers dancing. Joining an
already impressive and diverse line-up of
music including headliners Jools Holland
(Wednesday 11th July) and Levellers
(Friday 13th July), just booked artists are
The Correspondents, Gabrielle Aplin,

Holland fans will also be pleased to hear
his special guest vocalist is none other than
former Fine Young Cannibals frontman
Roland Gift.
Joining comedy genius Tim Minchin,
Larmer Tree Festival is thrilled to reveal
