“It is not that often that I get to hear someone play who I think is amazing. It is even more rare for me to hear a person that understands what the real “dirtybird” sound is all about. Jessica (J Phlip) is one of those rare gifted DJs who I love to listen to. “ – Claude VonStroke -
J Phlip, AKA Jessica Phillippe, discovered house music in her hometown of Champaign, Illinois, just 2 hours south of Chicago. Sometime around her 19th birthday she got her first DJ rig – two belt drive turntables and a mixer lacking EQ knobs for 100 bucks! From then on, her poor roommates were forced to listen to a constant dance party in-between her Systems Engineering studies. There aren’t a lot of 4.0 braniac engineering majors who decide to become DJs instead of cashing in on their degrees, but Jessica truly loves the music and has dedicated her life to it.
Her proximity to Chicago’s famous House scene tremendously affected her sound, but the distance afforded her the freedom to incorporate a variety of other influences into her repertoire. Her sets posses a fun, “lets-not-forget-this-is- dance-music,” feeling and simultaneously keep you guessing about what might come next. Her collection spans house, tech house, deep house, techno, booty bass and pretty much anything that make you shake your ass.
Jessica’s skills on the decks and in the studio have secured her highly desirable spot as an official member of the Dirtybird crew, after signing her first record to them in 2008. She is currently Claude VonStroke’s favorite support DJ and has already played at amazing high profile gigs like Fabric, Space Ibiza, Back to Basics, and Watergate. She was also chosen for URB Magazine’s Next 100 of 2009 and is currently residing in Berlin, ready to take Europe by storm.

Festivals are all about vibe, atmosphere and most importantly, having a good time with a good group of your mates.
Last year we saw the first chapter of the FARR FESTIVAL. A festival with a boutique feel, a variety of music and a few aeroplanes rides chucked in for good measure, with a large proportion of sales going to charities so there was definitely “A sense of helping people who actually need help…”
So unsurprisingly this year we thought we’d do it again! This time round we are set to work alongside an undecided charity (we’ll keep you informed), but as always we want to up the ante for you Guys- the Punters! Bringing you A little more than 13 hours of monumental madness set in the heart of a dressed up oak wood, on the borders of Hertfordshire/Cambridgeshire.
Baring in mind the true origins of why we started this family-orientated event we are keeping the prices more or less the same but offer you three stages worth of banging music. With one live stage and two stages full of top DJs and live acts, you can expect to see some big names. We have a few of people flying in from overseas and acts that we know you will be seeing a lot of over the oncoming year.
The music is one thing (a big thing admittedly) but to experience it in such a stunning area of the countryside is another… And with micro-lite and stunt plane rides for a tenner you can see it all from an amazing new perspective! Yep, you’ll be pleased to hear we’ve arranged with the local boys to take our revellers up in the clouds again for a little more fun!!
2011 is set to be yet another busy year; here is an opportunity to have an action packed weekend at Farr Fest!! Being only 35 mins out of LDN by train, 50 mins by car, 13 hours by foot… ‘It’s never too Farr for Farr Festival…’
