Yes, this really is a festival running from Monday to Wednesday (with camping until Thursday) - but as it's a festival for students, it doesn't matter.

Held on a site overlooking Polzeath Beach in Cornwall, it aims to compliment the music with indie films, theatre and "breaking student talent" as well as dips into the sea, and extra activities.

The headliners this year will be The Enemy, The Cribs, and The Wombats. Other live music will come from One Night Only, Does It Offend You Yeah?, Joe Lean And The Jin Jan Jong, Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip, The Metros, Vincent vincent And The Villains, Sway, Team Waterpolo, The Grammatics, Jonny Flynn, James Owen Fender, Aynzli Jones, Devils Gun, Babyhead, Beat Bullyz, Nick Harrison, The Getaway, Frank Hamilton, and The Dirty Discos.

There are more dance acts heading for Polzeath too with Pendulum (DJ set) & MC Verse, Mr Scruff, The Scratch Perverts, Plump DJs, Stanton Warriors, The Freestylers, Skream, Trojan Soundsystem, Dynamite MC, MC Wrec, Cassette Jam, Marc Roberts, and Freerange Party Society.

There will be 100's of artists spanning indie, break beat, folk, dub step, ska, world sounds, d'n'b, reggae and funk still to be announced. For the line-up details as available for the stages so far, please click here.
