The Music Mines Studio Stage at The Boar’s Head boasted Ben McClellan, Donna Kaur and Rhiannon Parry, Chester Weiss, Sian Punnett and Andy Stine among many others.

Among the many acts scheduled for the Old Wine Vaults were Father and Son, Katy Sharp, Chasing Shadows, Cask, The Confessions, Andy Bellis and Steve Khan.

There were also open mic performances at The Feathers a “singaround” at the Artisans Cafe and a set from DJ Phil at the King’s Head as well as an after festival party at The Old Wine Vaults.
