The hills of Dorset will be rolling in a whole new way on Friday 15 July and Saturday 16 July 2016, when music festival fans from across the county will descend on Halls Road Farm for the return of popular festival ‘Wonky Donk’.
A festival with a twist, Wonky Donk raises 10k every year for retired donkeys and horses. With a loyal following built up over the last six years, the festival brings together washboard wanderers, rock ‘n’ roll royalists and punk protesters in a weekend of roots revival mayhem.
Prepare for Celtic chaos with legendary folk punk players ‘Black Water County’ and get in gear to hear the grooved out, rockabilly sound of ‘Ruby and the Roughcuts’.
BBC introducing act, ‘The Severed Limb’ will be bringing their unique and eclectic brand of roots and punk to the mix and Familie Batenburg are set to make their UK debut, travelling all the way from The Netherlands to tear up the main stage on Saturday.
The festival will kick off at 4:45pm on Friday 15 July with the likes of Johnny Cash tribute band ‘Cash Converted’, mischievous Dorset skiffle group ‘Quinns Quinney’ and ‘Johnny Boxcars’ included in the line-up.
Saturday will see bands such as ‘The Paper Trains’, ‘Screamin Miss Jackson’ and ‘Catratchers’ take centre stage.
Wonky Donk music festival will take place at Halls Road Farm, Lytchett Matravers, BH16 6DP. Tickets cost £35 and include entry for both Friday and Saturday as well as free camping. Those aged under 5 years or over 90 years qualify for free entry. Tickets can be bought at Square Records in Wimborne or online at www.wegottickets.com/f/9918.
