Right then Gnomicide, nice one with the clashfinder. Following tweaks could be applied:

Main stage will finish 12-12:30 IIRR. Can't see the Water's Edge Stage finishing earlier than the main stage. & Ferocious Dog were on at 12:30 last I heard.

Dance tent will not have gaps between acts.

Just checked some dubious info on FB too: Devil's Prefects (Hobo Jones without Hobo) are on at midday Sunday.

But overall the times won't be finalised for a few weeks yet. Nice to see what clashes there might be though. :-)

Neither really but more punk than folk. No big folky artist was free but we hopefully have someone who will surprise and do a decent job. We are nervous with the situation but have an act with a decent back catalogue

The Whip stormed it before them. No clues as its not contractually tied up and we have fallen fowl to opening our mouths too early before. This year we had no foul ups with announcements and we want it to stay like that.

Quite Rich. We'll all cope. Shame to have missed The Whip, was helping HSC and others onto the site when they were on. Crowd looked well up for it as we walked past.....

Any idea when you will be able to tell us? Hours, days, weeks?

Thanks for the info. I've tweaked the times a little. I'll continue to update as and when any further info is publicised.

Oh yes, I sooooo hoped you'd say punk - you can never have enough punk at a festival, I say :) There's nothing like a good pogo to end the first night! ;) I'll be very interested to see if it's who I think it might be (but I'm not saying any more than that! ;) )- a very bold choice if it is - good on you all! :D

Oi, Sicknote and some others will be playing live. You want to see Sicknote IIRR. Sunday afternoon is all live acts, not even bleepy.
