The Festival

Set at Leeds music festival - a rite-of-passage experience for many British teenagers - this charming comedy is directed by British screenwriter Iain Morris, with a hysterical script from the UK’s Joe Parham and Keith Akushie. With delightfully entertaining performances from British actors Joe Thomas, Hannah Tointon and Hammed Animashaun, the film is co-produced by Film4 and Fudge Park Productions.





After being dumped by his girlfriend at graduation, Nick (Joe Thomas) thinks his life is over. But his best friend Shane (Hammed Animashaun) has other ideas, concocting a plan for them to spend three days at Leeds music festival.
