Live music and DJs are just one aspect of this off grid festival. A Speakers' Forum provides a platform for key Green thinkers; the Brigadoon Stage hosts informal acoustic music sessions; and there's a spoken word arena for poets, comedians and raconteurs.
Landscaped grounds high above the Wye Valley offer views of the Severn estuary and bridges; the ruins of neoclassical Piercefield House provide an atmospheric backdrop; and the rolling parkland of the site, encircled by woods, has ample space for camping.
Tickets are currently priced at £95. Children aged under 11 years can attend free, a youth ticket (aged 11-15 years) with a responsible adult is £54, carer/companion tickets are also often free (by arrangement).
A car pass (in hardstanding carpark) is priced at £22, a motorbike pass is £11, and a live-in vehicle pass is £50 (live-in vehicle passes sold out in 2014), or £60 for a car and caravan. A limited number of dog tickets are available at £44 plus a £40 returnable good behaviour bond.
