bushstock poster 2016Barn On The Farm started the same year Popped Music was born, although we were born in very much a different guise we have begun to blossom and have always coveted a visit to Barn On The Farm festival. Every year watching the line up become better and better, full of acts we’ve been supporting, longing to be able to go and then boom! We are going. It feels like it has been such a long long wait but I feel it will be oh so worth it.

They have such a coup with Jack Garrett as a headline act, but seeing as they have supported Jack in the lead up to his crazy year (2016) it’s no wonder (oh wonder!) that he goes back to return the favour of support. Fabulous!

Our  Barn On The Farm playlist below reveals no clear path for our picks, no clear path for who we will see and so I invite you to listen to the playlist and take our few picks below as just an additional tit-bit and a clue as to where you might find us over the weekend.



I had the pleasure of seeing Mahalia play at Liverpool Sound City Delegate’s party back in May and was instantly taken aback by the tone of her vocal, the attitude of that came through and the lyrical content as well as her fiercely confident stage presence. I’d certainly go and see her again and most definitely feel happy to give her one of our few spots for a pick for this weekend’s festival.

I’ve been following Judas for sometime with keen interest and recently had the pleasure of working on an interview with them (keep your eyes peeled!) and also finally got to see them play live a few months ago. With heady self-assuredness and a stuffed bag full of stadium-sized tunes these guys take on rock n roll and want to beat it hands down.

Will Joseph Cook

The first time we saw Will Joseph Cook was at a small festival and I’m not entirely sure he or the crowd knew what was going on.  Even then though he gave a confident yet swift performance it was difficult as  with such a quiet atmosphere it was hard to build a rapport with the crowd – he deserved much more. Since then he has been touring and gaining support left right and centre – Barn on The Farm is a brilliant match for him and he will flourish here!
