The Festival — New Trailer


added: Wed, Jul 25th '18

Check out a new international trailer for "The Festival," the upcoming British comedy from Iain Morris and Damon Beesley, the creators of the raunchy teen comedy series "The Inbetweeners."

Set during a popular outdoor music festival, the film stars Joe Thomas (Inbetweeners) as a recent college graduate named Nick, who, after getting dumped by his long-time girlfriend, tries to escape his woes by attending his first ever outdoor rave concert.

British comedian Hammed Animashaun co-stars as Nick's best friend, Shane, while Aussie comic actress Claudia O'Doherty (from the Netflix series "Love") plays a music festival aficionado who offers some friendly advice to Nick and Shane as they try to survive the all-night party.

Additionally, Hannah Tointon (from the British series "Mr Selfridge") co-stars as Nick's ex-girlfriend, Caitlin, while, New Zealand comedian Jemaine Clement (of "What We Do in the Shadows" and "Flight of the Conchords") makes a guest appearance as Nick's father.

Written by Keith Akushie and Joe Parham (the creators of the British sitcom "Siblings") and directed by Iain Morris, "The Festival" will be released in the U.K. on August 17th.

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. THE FESTIVAL -- a comedy about friendship, growing up, and going mad in a field.
