The new festival comes from the creators of London’s GALA festival.

The first edition will take place from 24-26 July on the grounds of Belvoir Castle near Grantham, and will feature original collaborations between a mix of names from the worlds of architecture, design, music and food.

Turner Prize-winning firm Assemble has been added to the programme, partnering with south London’s Rhythm Section for a unique design and sound project.

Jo Halligan, co-founder at Assemble commented, “Kingdom offers us a chance to push boundaries, to really think about the way in which people come together to experience music, and what we can do to heighten that experience. We can be bold and take risks with the design, as we know it only has to last a few days!”

Bradley Zero, founder of Rhythm Section, said, “I’ve known the Assemble crew for a while and we’ve often talked about building a nightclub or working on a festival together, so it’s very exciting to be collaborating with them on Kingdom”
