VINTAGE AT GOODWOOD

Use

Hold on to your perfectly poised hats, because Vintage at Goodwood is coming to town and bringing with it a weekend of music and shopping like never before. From August 13th – 15th, settle in for a few days of art, design, fashion and performance along with 20,000 other people, all tucked away in a secluded valley overlooking the coast of Sussex.

Each day bands will take to the various stages, sectioned into decades. So swing by Let it Rock for a 50s-style dance-along, or The Warehouse 80s stage to hear the likes of Danny Rampling spinning their magic on the decks. The main stage will play host to artists like Noisettes and legends Heaven 17, and there's even a roller disco where you can strap on your skates and whiz about for a bit.

When you're not dancing your socks off you can take a stroll down the film set Highstreet, and stop off to buy groceries, or pop into Lily Allen and Sarah Owen's vintage venture Lucy in Disguise, which is launching at the festival. Then, when you're ready to hit the hay you can choose from vintage caravans, local hotels or – our personal favourite – Glamping. Glam camping, which involves sleeping in Egyptian cotton in wildly elaborate tents sounds right up our street!

So, if heaps of vintage retail therapy, retro music you can't help but dance to, set in simply stunning surroundings sounds like your idea of festival heaven, get on down to Goodwood in August. We'll be the ones getting over excited at the Swing Dance Company stage.
