Radio One DJ Scott Mills names Lincolnshire music fest portaloos on air

BBC Radio One DJ Scott Mills has officially named the portaloos for JoeFest, a one-day local indie music festival coming to the county next month.

As part of his radio show, Scott Mills interviewed Joe Davies, organiser of JoeFest 2017, a small festival taking place at Stourton Estates, near Horncastle on Saturday, August 5.

In the interview, Joe explained a number of areas at the festival have names, such as the Nicky and Danny Cowley Main Stage, the David Attenborough Car Park and the Michelle Obama Foodcourt, however the toilet area had not yet been given a name.

Scott Mills then named the portaloos after himself, saying: “I would be honoured to name the portaloos at JoeFest.”

Joe has now said a plaque will be placed at the portaloos in honour of the Radio One DJ.

He previously told Lincolnshire Reporter: “JoeFest is all about bringing people together to have a good time.

“The event started out as my 18th birthday party a few years ago but has developed into a small music festival offering an intimate setting for musicians and music lovers to experience up and coming talent from the local area and further afield.”

Tickets for JoeFest are available to the public and can be purchased online costing £19.99 for a regular ticket and £8.99 for under-16s, plus a £1 booking fee per ticket.

Camping on the Saturday night is also available with the ticket.

Gates open at 10.30am where the music will run from 12pm until 11pm featuring 15 different acts across the day.
