Two trailers has been released for The Festival, the new comedy movie from Inbetweeners creators Iain Morris and Damon Beesley.

Set in a music festival, the film stars Joe Thomas, from the hit Channel 4 comedy alongside Claudia O'Doherty, Flight Of The Conchords star Jemaine Clement, Hannah Tointon and Hammed Animashaun.

Thomas plays Nick, whose girlfriend dumps him at graduation, prompting a colossal meltdown in front of the entire university. So his friend Shane (Animashaun) and 'certified oddball' Amy (O’Doherty) take him to a muddy festival to get him to lose himself in the music and the hedonism.

Directed by Morris and written by Siblings creator Keith Akushie, The Festival is released on August 16.
