All stall holders, food suppliers, musicians, talks and more are chosen within the framework of our guiding philosophy; ‘ The expansion of consciousness, from the material to the ethereal’.
So lets elaborate a bit. Firstly, the Music
In a word we could say it’s ‘roots’ music. But to break that down we would say the musical focus is on world, reggae and folk music. With artists having performed from Colombia, Ghana, Japan, Wales, England and Europe we are grateful to introduce you to some fantastic performances. There is a musical journey. Artists are not randomly selected, or put as headline acts because of the number of Facebook likes. It’s all about the vibe.
The Free Stage is open to performers of all varieties, poets, comedians, hang players. There will be various scheduled acts alongside pop up performances.
DANA PERRY – Spoken word poet, contemporary, conversational, typical subjects- consumerism, authenticity, gender roles, socialism, homelessness, environment. Usually a serious message but humorous delivery.
Talks (Avalon Rising Tent)
Talks are a big part of Unearthed, and very much close to the heart of why we do the event. The talks really help focus our minds on the ethereal. Topics have ranged from sustainable living, food production, child birth and care, dreaming, meditation or the after-life, to name just a few.
We are looking to improve this aspect of the festival in 2017, so watch this space.
This year we are aiming to do more for kids. Below are some of the goins on, with more located around the field.

Nourishing the mind needs a nourished body. All food suppliers at Unearthed are vegan and or vegetarian. The near endless spectrum of fantastic vegetarian food is something to behold, and something which is rarely encountered for non-vegetarians in day to day life. Certainly if you were to judge vegetarian options by what we see in pubs and most restaurants you might think that options are limited. But this is far form the truth.
We would like to help introduce you to a selection of fantastic food suppliers who put a lot of love, care and attention into their food. ‘Theres no big macs ‘ere son’
You are of course welcome to bring your own food to cook if you are camping. Though please do so carefully.

PRIMAL PATHWAY with Ryan Naish – The system combines physical activity, recovery and a deep connection with nature, with an aim of restoring health and improving wellbeing.
The aim of the game is to maintain the ability to do what we enjoy for as long as we possibly can and to keep the body healthy and mobile in the process. Primal Movement addresses the natural human movement patterns we lose from years of poor posture and extensive sitting.
