Shindig Festival have shared drone footage taken on Monday afternoon after everyone had left the campsites, with organisers saying they’re: “so proud of how clean everyone left the farm. Thank you Diggers.”
The two-minute video, filmed by Ian Newby and set to La Bonda’s “I Wanna Be Your Lover“, takes viewers on an aerial tour of Shindig’s vacated campsites and stages at Gilcombe Farm in Somerset. Shindig’s capacity increased by 3,500 to nearly 10,000 this year.

Shindig has eight themed areas, with no designated main stage, alongside a family line-up in the Kids Kingdom. Ahead of the festival, co-founder Will Lardner said: “With incredible acts such as Kingdem, Ozomatli ft Chali 2na, Benjamin Zephaniah and the Revolutionary Minds and Kenny Dope, we’re all set for a really great party again!”
Weekend tickets for next year are already on sale from the Shindig Festival website. Shindig 2020 will take place from 21-24th May at an as yet undisclosed location in the South West.
Last month, other festivals launched the #TakeYourTentHome campaign and asked major retailers to stop selling low-quality tents as ‘festival tents’. An average tent left behind at a festival contains as much plastic as nearly 9,000 straws.
