Robin Perkins said: “We’re so excited about the festival this year. It promises to be even bigger and better than last year. We have worked hard to make Boho Festival an intimate gathering of all ages to enjoy live music, DJs and entertainment in a beautiful woodland settling. Tickets are selling quickly, and we can’t wait to welcome the festival goers.”

The 16-acre Millview site is located on former RAF Newton land used to park bomber aircraft. The site was opened in 2021 by Tom Fisher, whose family has farmed in Newton for many years. It was later used as a horse cross-country course and is now hosting intimate retreats and events.

Fisher said: “We are delighted to host Boho Festival again. I grew up in the 90s and to host big names such as Jeremy Healy and Martin Kemp is fantastic for us. It’s such a great event for locals and visitors to get together and have a good time in our beautiful Trent Valley surroundings.”
