The festival organisers are going old school & simple this year. With the 10 bands over the course of the festival playing on a single stage with breaks in between the sets so folks can grab a drink, eat some fantastic food, browse the markets & talk about the performance they’ve just seen.

Handmade markets will be brought to festival goers by the amazing folks at Sacred Tree Markets. Featuring food stalls that are a cut above your average festival fare, quality brewers & local wines served out of  vintage 50’s caravans, there’s something for everyone.

Though camping is not included as part of the festival there is public camping directly adjacent to the festival site. Tickets are strictly limited see the festivals Facebook page for more information.
