Byline Festival

Billed as "a riot of independent journalism", Byline Festival is over the Bank Holiday weekend (24-27 August) this year, in the spectacular setting of Pippingford Park, Sussex, part of Ashdown Forest and inspiration for the Winnie the Pooh books.

Topping the bill at this year's Bylinefest are Russian feminist protest punk band Pussy Riot, the Cambridge Analytica whistleblowers, indy songwriter and instrumentalist Badly Drawn Boy, new wave sophisti-pop combo Blow Monkeys, sports journalist and former England footballer Gary Lineker, comedian Alexei Sayle and June Sarprong from Sky News's The Pledge.
