This summer, pack your bags, grab your wellies and don’t forget your tent, because the BAFTA Award winning creators of The Inbetweeners invite you to the mother of all music festivals…
When Nick’s (Joe Thomas) girlfriend dumps him at graduation, he has a colossal meltdown in front of the entire university. He’s convinced his life is over, but his best mate Shane (Hammed Animashaun) has the perfect solution: three days at an epic music festival. With the help of “festival aficionado” and certified oddball Amy (Emmy Award nominee Claudia O’Doherty), Shane tries to get Nick to embrace the music, the mayhem and the mud.
From the creators of The Inbetweeners comes The Festival, a comedy about friendship, growing up, and going mad in a field.
The Festival is released in cinemas nationwide by Entertainment Film Distributors on Tuesday 14th August 2018.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the beloved British coming of age sitcom The Inbetweeners, which co-creators Morris and Beesley followed up with two hugely successful big-screen outings.
