Maverick, a portal to America from Easton Farm Park which always leaves audiences wanting more.
A family friendly three day Americana folk festival starting on the Friday evening not only has amazing music but tasty food for whatever mood and adorable animals to pet, some of which include: horses, chickens, ducks and my favourite, heart melting bunnies.
And now to give you an insight into the music. Round every corner you turn, your ears are filled with sweet, mind blowing melodies from artists all around the world. What makes this weekend so enjoyable is the fact that each artist is so unique and all have their own style. The most popular stage was the peacock stage which was beautifully decorated with a giant, colourful peacock painting which acted as a backdrop for the stage. The stage hosted some of the people’s favourite artists such as Angel Snow, and yes she really does sound like an angel with such a powerful voice. Kev and Kelly, who’s special power is livening up the audience. Finally, everyone’s favourite, Black Feathers, whose last song was met by screams and cheers for more music.
Maverick is definitely a festival for everyone no matter what music you like to sing along to in the shower whether it be Pop Punk, Indie Rock or just general pop, every artist is so different that you’re bound to find something to bop along to.
Unlike Vegas, what happens at Maverick doesn’t stay at Maverick as on the last day, when the festival ends around two in the afternoon, it is then taken over to a neighbouring pub where the after party ends when people decide it’s their bed time. With accompanying American style nibbles and more music, the after party is definitely something to venture over to when you don’t want it to end yet.

Maverick festival is a festival I’ve always had a personal interest in, especially as it is held in the village I went to Primary school. It was an amazing surprise to see a former classmate of mine, Ella, performing with her friend Josh; their performance was jaw dropping! The festival has a feel like no other, I loved every second. I’ll be returning next year, hope to see y’all there.
