It is an honor to finally have the full Jenova Collective live experience, after a stonking DJ set a few years ago in our old home, Crucifix Lane.
Jenova Collective are a 7 piece UK dance band with an intense electrifying show. Fusing the worlds of dance music and live performance these guys have been tearing up international clubs, venues and festivals since they formed in 2014.
Their electric combination of vintage samples, gypsy-jazz guitar, funky bass, screeching sax, dirty synths & live drums all fronted by an enigmatic frontwoman is distinctly unique and throws down an irresistible party at every occasion.

LeeFest: The Neverland

Wonderful people...

Today I get to share some very exciting, slightly life changing (for me at least) news with you!

The story of LeeFest that I’m sure you know all too well (‘Lee! No house parties!') was the seed for something very special to begin.

For the past few years I have marvelled as this wonderful community of like minded souls has grown around me, and been awestruck at the way you have contributed to the festival; dedicating your ideas, your energy and your awesome spirit.

As our community has snowballed, it has felt increasingly wrong that something created by so many should be named after just one! We are therefore going to be starting a new story, with the focus on the whole community.

Experimenting with The Neverland has been the most inspiring and productive two years of our lives. It encouraged us to stretch our imaginations, broaden our horizons and be more ambitious than ever.

We are therefore making a commitment, that from this day forward we will no longer build festivals. Together we will build fully fledged, immersive, magical worlds. Worlds in which our inner children can thrive as we retrieve our sense of discovery together; through music, party and wonder.

As our community grows internationally, and at our current political junctures, we felt that the name for this new story should reflect the inclusive, safe retreat that it can provide, even if just for one weekend, for those from all persuasions and all walks of life.

LeeFest has taken me on the most incredible personal adventures, for which I will be eternally grateful. The original ethos of rebellion and DIY action will always be the driving force and I will still be living, breathing and working on Neverworld 24/7/365! The LeeFest story will live on forever, but it’s a story from the past and right now we have an opportunity to write the future...

Welcome to Neverworld. A place we never have to grow old.

Lee Denny

We are delighted to bring you Neverworld, the next chapter in the LeeFest story. An immersive kingdom of music, party and wonder, with three tribes to join and three magical realms to explore!

☮The Neverwoods☮
The Neverwoods is boasts some of the finest scenery in the whole of Neverworld, with panoramic natural vistas and a place of tranquillity, nourishment and well-being. Stroll through the picturesque frames of the ambient forests whilst becoming one with the wonderful nature flowing throughout and embrace new music, arts and crafts in a no nonsense paradise celebrating good times and joy.

☼ Mermaids Lagoon ☼
Submerged in neon coating and sun-kissed horizons, Mermaids Lagoon will be the go-to destination for all those seeking the Club Tropicana high-life of cocktails, sunshine and pristine clarity. Dive into the bright lights of 80s glam in all its prime, with the beautiful people and luminous vibes of sunshine by the beach and margaritas on tap, as a vivid soundtrack of pop music serenades the pool bathers. For those seeking opulence and extravagance, a dip into Mermaids Lagoon is the height of decadence and thrilling glamour.

☠ Skull Ridge ☠
A futuristic dystopia, Skull Ridge lies in The Neverland shadows - a living embodiment of shadowy fantasies and mind-blowing attractions. Discover the sounds of punk in Hooks Rock or the unceasing bass of The Goldmine rave, hidden in darkest depths of the realm. Mob rule and darkness are ever present in this sprawling part of The Neverland that is unforgiving and unrepentant.

Choose your tribe, find Neverworld and Never Grow Old!

🙏 ☮️ 💜
