Set in the heart of The National Forest, our multi award winning independent family festival returns for its 14th year on 25-28 May 2023. Cherished for its intimate, idyllic location, grassroots ethos and miscellany of musical offerings, the festival has become a sanctity for alternative music lovers across the country and for the local community alike. We’re excited to add 30 names to one of our most exciting line-ups to date.

Team, Lime Cordiale, Witch Fever, and Lanterns on The Lake.
