The Festival film trailer comes from the creators of The Inbetweeners

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…

The Festival is the first comedy feature film release from production company Fudge Park, formed by The Inbetweeners writers and executive producers Iain Morris and Damon Beesley and will be released in cinemas on 17th August across the UK and Ireland. The Festival  is directed by Iain Morris and written by Keith Akushie and Joe Parham (BBC Three’s Siblings).

This year marks the tenth 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. The Inbetweeners Movie released in 2011 took £45 million at the box office to become the most successful British comedy of all time and sequel The Inbetweeners 2, set the record for the biggest opening weekend of 2014 and was the highest grossing British film that year.

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 AwardÒ 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 produced by Claire Jones (Sightseers, Ghost Stories) for Fudge Park, developed and backed by Film4 and Entertainment Film Distributors.
