Having a major emphasis on the feel and look of the stages, gives the acts an amazing platform to showcase their talents!
As the festival organisers continue to raise the bar, this also raises the bar for the acts creating a brilliant experience and atmosphere for both performer and the punter over the course of the weekend!
