Dixie Fields is a new boutique country music festival that debuted in 2019, featuring Lauren Alaina, Holloway Road, a cinema under the stars, camping, BBQ, and a host of other great country music.
Lauren Alaina’s film The Road Less Travelled is set in the deep US country. Generally unavailable in the UK it made a great start to the festival – especially accompanied by a flavoursome American BBQ. Stevie O’Connor’s big band style really got the evening going and we sang our hearts out to country karaoke before succumbing to the summer evening and Hannah Paris’s intimate camp-side acoustic.
Saturday campers woke to an American brunch and the fascinating songwriters’ workshop hosted by Katy Hurt. Then it was time for the full line up, headlined by Lauren Alaina. Too many treats to mention here but the pop up recording studio gave some new talent their chance to shine while the rest of us were loving the music, sampling the wide choice of food and drink, learning how to line-dance and just generally having fun.
Dixie Fields takes place in grassland fields previously used by the V Festival, bordering beautiful Hylands Park, just outside Chelmsford, Essex.
Our festival is a laidback affair, sustainable, ethically sourced and packed with clean and wholesome good times.
