Fi. Fest - a family festival held in Maidenhead - will be returning next year, and details of the line-up have now been announced.

Shaun Williamson will be hosting 'Barrioke'

British chart toppers The Feeling are among the headliners for this year’s festival, with an additional headliner to be announced early next year.

Known for the hits “Fill My Little World”, “Love It When You Call”, and “Never Be Lonely”, The Feeling will be one of two headlining acts to take to the stage on Saturday 8 July 2023, as the festival celebrates its fifth anniversary.

Making his festival debut will be Shaun Williamson (Barry in Eastenders) as his Barrioke tour goes on the main stage. Barrioke is said to have been taking the UK by storm, as he brings people up on stage, and his audience  sings along with a giant karaoke screen.

A spokesperson for the event said: "The local festival offers an eclectic music mix with hours of high-class entertainment that festival goers will love.  So far, amazing acts announced include Daft, Elite Elton, Third Lung, The Boxteles, and DJ oneF."

Alongside the main festival event is Fi.Fest’s Kidzone. There will be entertainment, crafts, free shows, a giant sandpit, fairground rides, and more for the little ones. The festival team say families should keep an eye out for Baxter the T-Rex making an appearance throughout the day.

Fi.Fest also has a food village with stall holders, both local and national, serving up food, drinks, ice creams and sweat treats. 

Organisers say they are excited to bring back the festival for 2023 and add that they are confident it will be the best yet, with more surprises still to come.

Festival organiser Lee Page said: “We can’t wait to get the event underway next year, seeing friends and family get together for a huge party in the summer is the highlight of the events calendar. 

"Every year the festival is getting bigger and better and we really appreciate the support we get from Fi.Festers.  We can’t wait to have the full release out and have everyone get together.”

Tickets for the event, which was sold out last year, are available to buy online at www.fifest.com.

Prices start at £30 for an adult day ticket, and £17 for under-16s.
