This 3 day alternative music and arts festival is organised by Muddy Promotions, a non-profit making collective of musicians and artists. This is meant to be a festival 'for the people by the people' and getting into this festival means joining up as a member.
Tickets for the festival are currently only available to 'Members Only', hence the £5 membership fee. Numbers are restricted to 500 people due to the type of license being applied for. However, anyone can apply to be a member.
Lots of local bands are playing including: Tarantism, Opaque, James Chadwick, Hush the Many, and Circus to name but a few. There is both an Acoustic tent, DJ tent and a Main Stage plus a Film / Jazz Tent, Fair Trade goods, Food Village, Bio Dome, communal fire, performance art, family camping, kids' field and art gallery. Lots of help is needed. Even performers will be asked to help out with stewarding. To get involved, check out the BUY link above.
A small number of tickets are still available to buy on the gate.
