The main stage will also be housed in a big top tent for the first time to ensure all weather is catered for!
The silent disco will be returning with some special surprises to make it even bigger! Organiser James Scarlett explains; “We’ve gone big this year on our late night silent disco and it will honestly need to be seen to be believed! And all you need is a pair of headphones to enjoy all the fun. On Thursday in the Yohkai Stage we’ll have a never before seen silent live set from Gallops and I’ve heard they’ve got massive things planned. This will then be followed by a world first… Old Blue Last Silent Karaoke & DJs. This will be bonkers fun after a day of beard stroking so don’t miss it. Then on the Friday and Saturday we’ll have the brilliant Arc Stage silent disco battles as normal. And never fear, the Mars Volta channel will return on all three nights!”
Signature Brew will be on hand for all your beer needs as well as the return of food favourites Smokin Hot Tamales who will be joining a raft of food stalls, including the vegetarian/vegan stalls of Manjula Catering and Seitans Grill (however all stalls will have vegetarian/vegan and gluten free options). There will also be a shisha lounge and mobile phone charging point!
