    Obviously the Levellers, but Frank Turner was ace and The Cuban Brothers were worth getting drowned for! Plus N’Faly…. That man has the most infectious smile in the world!! Thank you!

    Loved the 80’s music in the dance tent. The DJ knew what we all wanted some great classics everyone from all ages could dance and sing along to spiced up with a bit of remixing

    Scott Doonican of the Bar-Stewards, crowd surfing on an inflatable dingy, whilst performing a House of Pain cover, with Eliza Carthy accompanying on fiddle.

    Or did I dream it?

    Alison Moyet was fab. She’s such a talent. Cuban Brothers were a good laugh as well. Oh, and Heaton & Abbott were great too. All in all we had a great time. X

    We were returning to the festival after a break of a few years.We loved the vibe of the Bandstand and also loved seeing Gaz Brookfield and Frank Turner again. We had lots of fun and giggles and loved all the effort people put into their costumes. Just really loved it. Thank you to all those involved .

    Levellers/Lakeman football match in the kids field. Hilarious mayhem! Such good sports. Summed up the spirit of the festival. Community, family, anarchic fun. Thanks guys. Those kids will never forget that. Hope Seth didn’t take too long to recover from his foul!

    Frank Turner, Ferocious Dog, Gaz Brookfield, Lightning Seeds, Raging Fyah – amazing festival – our 5th year on the trot – can’t wait to get muddy in a field again next year!

    Elaine Bettger

    (August 22, 2017 - 5:28 pm)

    The Doonicans and Gaz Brookfield (brilliant as always!), Lankum who I caught by chance sheltering from the rain and thought were beautiful, Sean McGowan was fantastic, Jake Martin too, and of course Frank Turner and The Levellers!

    Ken Hunter

    (August 24, 2017 - 1:10 pm)

    Waterboys NMA sisters of mercy the lightening seeds Warsaw radio Hayseed dixies and of course the levellers roll on 2018 oh and the Cuban brothers

    Frank Turner was best set I’ve seem in 20 years. Paul Heaton and Jacqui Abbott were brilliant, Ian Broudie with the seeds hit set was a treat, Glen Matlock was superb and David Wax Museum was a discovery

    Tony Deeley

    (August 24, 2017 - 4:18 pm)

    Doonicans, Waterboys, NMA, Heaton and Abbott, FD, Lightning Seeds and SLF were my joint favourites. If I was pushed I’d say SLF. Unfortunately missed PSB and the Levs due to early departure.

    Funke and The Leylines at the Bimble Inn. Devils Prefects at Magpie Music and Frank Turner x

    Leylines were the find of the fest for me at the Bimble and the Levs acoustic set was a highlight for sure. Dancing with Dubioza and Hepcat!
