Where the magic happens… We have eight wonderful areas full of music, dancing and the best times for you to explore while you’re here with us. Each one a unique experience for you to enjoy – from our main stage The Pallet, home to some magnificent headline performances over the years, to our latest additions like the photogenic Big Ed, and second stage The Meadow.


Our main stage! Catch the biggest and greatest headline sets here throughout the weekend from Thursday to Sunday. We’ve had some incredible acts perform on this stage over the years and it’s set to welcome even more soon…

The Meadow

The Meadow is one of our newest stages, introduced in 2023 as a “second” stage to alleviate the strain on the smaller Woodland area. Its first year saw headline shows from Viagra Boys, Echo and the Bunnymen and Public Service Broadcasting, and becomes a late night cinema for “Meadow Movies” after the music ends.


A magical little corner of our site, The Woodland is a stage between the trees, creating an intimate and idyllic setting for the loveliest music. Folk music icon Beans on Toast will takeover the Woodland for his Foolhardy Takeover on the Saturday of our festival.


Our new electronic music venue for 2024! CODA is set to become a brand new haven for dance music lovers, with its first year seeing DJ sets from Phil Hartnoll of Orbital, Roni Size, Utah Saints, The Orb and loads more.

Convoy Cabaret

Bearded Theory’s homeland for the punks and anarchists. Join us in Convoy Cabaret to experience the best of underground rock and let your freak flag fly proudly.

Maui Waui

Unmistakably adorned with a giant pink octopus, Maui Waui is home to all things fun and with all who sail in her guaranteed to have a uniquely good time.

The Something Else Tea Tent
