On-stage the grass roots music line up is introduced by Britain's Got Talent semi-finalist Allan Turner-Ward with appearances from festival stalwarts Pronghorn, the rabble rousing folk rock concoction of Black Water County - now celebrating their tenth anniversary - and a rare outing for Volatile Agents, the medical marvels whose line up includes doctors, surgeons, theatre medics and a member of the judiciary.

Later in the day, festival favourites The Mother Ukers can be found at the Grooves after party in the Brickies.



On the door ticket prices – £8 adult, £6 Youth. Grooves Garden £15. Children under 5 are FREE.

Tickets are not refundable under any circumstances other than cancellation of the festival.

Early bird tickets are limited and have to be purchased by midnight on the night before the event day.

As in previous years £1 from every ticket sold will be donated to Dorset disability charity, Diverse Abilities Plus, which helps children and adults in Dorset who live with profound disability, and has received more than £9,000 over the last two years from its association with Grooves on the Green.

This community event offers music on two stages with other attractions including sports on the Green, alternative therapies and the popular Kidzone with lots of activities to keep the youngest groovers happy, and more.

There’s also a regional beer and food festival with a wide range of local crafts beers and ciders from Dorset breweries including Sunny Republic, Bournemouth Beer Company and Purbeck Cider.


This event does not have camping but there are a number of hotels, hostels and guest houses in the area.

More information will be here when available.
