Theme

This year's theme will be 'Fact or Fiction' with the festival exploring the theories, fantasies, mysteries, legends, visions and illusions that create a rich world between reality and fiction. With inspiration taken from Heath Robinson, Escher, and Dali, as well as inventors and scientist who changed the way we view the world.

New for 2010 is the Forest, an area of woodland dedicated to acoustic music, barefoot discos and twilight fire circle tales.

On site

The festival is spread out over two sides of a lake with a large main stage area, 'The Great Stage' and then smaller tent venues dotted around, like 'Where the Wild Things Are', 'The Living Room', and 'Small World' which all have artistic décor. The happenings on the main stage side are generally more dancey and louder, and the other side has a more acoustic and chilled vibe.
