The Levellers own festival which they hope will "offer not only the best in live music today but to re-create a community spirit that many events nowadays lack or choose to ignore. This event is about people young and old coming together and taking part in something that will be remembered for a long time." It's certainly succeeded in that aim, and has become one of the most popular, selling out most years.

The dates for the seventh Beautiful Days are confirmed as from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd August at Escot Park, near Fairmile, Devon.

Friday night headliners are Hawkwind, The Pogues are headlining Saturday night, and Levellers will headline and close the festival, as is traditional, and Levellers will headline on the Sunday night and close the festival playing the album 'A Weapon Called the Word' in its entirety, plus a few other favourites, followed by a firework finale.
Also performing are The Saw Doctors, Gong, Lamb, The Imagined Village, Pendulum (DJ set), Seth Lakeman, The Blockheads, The Wonder Stuff, Tom Middleton, Kissmet, Banco de Gaia, The Broken Family Band, Peatbog Faeries, Frank Turner, Jim Moray, Pronghorn, Dub Pistols, Cara Dillon, The King Blues, Eliza Carthy, Imelda May, Lau, Edward II, Kris Drever, John McCusker & Roddy Woomble Trio, John Smith, Sonic Boom Six, Chris T-T, Jay Jay Pistolet, Ruarri Joseph, and more.
