Gaz Coombes of Supergrass fame will headline the event on Sunday 4th September. With his last solo record, Matador, being nominated for the Mercury prize last year, he will definitely be one of the highlights of the festival.

The weekend will see over 20 acts take to 3 different stages, with headliners Gaz Coombes  (Sunday 3rd) and Richard Hawley (Saturday 2nd) being joined by the likes of John Bramwell from I Am Kloot and Juanita Stein from Howling Bells.


Local acts including Lizzie Goddard, Carol Lake  and Twisted Revolution will also be performing at the event.

Tickets cost £18.50 per day and can be bought from the website or over the phone on 0844 8542776.
