Free programme.

Throughout the weekend many of the performances are free to watch and listen to, where we charge for others. You are welcome to turn up to watch any of the free events, although arriving early makes sense.

Click on any of the events below to get more information about it. Each event shows where it is and what type of event it is, click on these to get more information.

At the bottom of this page is a map of the festival locations.

The programme is still being built and subject to change.

We are adding new acts as soon as they confirm,

and will confirm bands & days very soon.
