Festival Director Luke Howell said, "We're really excited about this year's line-up- it's packed with a range of quality music from big names and rising stars. You're bound to leave with a new favourite band as well as fantastic sets from our headliners. We're a solar-powered event and with the forecast predicting good weather, this really will be a weekend of turning sunshine into laughter!"

The event brought to you by the team responsible for one of the oldest features of Glastonbury festival - The Croissant Neuf Solar Powered Venue which is the centrepiece of the Green Fields is set in and around an ancient Iron Age hill fort near Usk in Monmouthshire will run from Friday 10th until Sunday 12th August 2012.

Run by a family with families in mind, Croissant Neuf Summer Party creates a safe, welcoming haven to take the kids to. The community spirit is as prevalent as the green ethos that permeates the festival. As with last years event, all of the facilities on site - the venues, eateries, bar, toilets and general lighting (basically everything) are completely solar powered.

There is a packed programme of sports, workshops activities and games that run alongside the music and ensure everyone's tastes are catered to. By day the sports academy will feed the ongoing sports fever sweeping the UK with a packed fixtures list led by professional coaches.

On offer elsewhere are workshops in everything from yoga, crafts and even a song-writing workshop with Luke Concannon himself. Then there's Saturday’s Bucanneers and Brigands dress-up theme to prepare for and lanterns to make for the beautiful Sunday lantern procession.

By night the music continues in the two solar-powered venues and at the spacious 'Stagger Inn', the festival's very own village pub-in-barn. On Saturday night famed clown Gerry Flanagan curates a circus spectacular with performances on the Circomedia rig from artists such as Juliet Jenson and Nina Bambrey. Circus turns to cabaret as the night rolls on and Chuck Lee, accompanied by the high street house band, presents a night of musical mayhem, outrageous antics and spectacular stunts with some of the top variety acts of the country.
